Eleventh Annual York Reads! One Book, One Community


York Reads! is a community wide initiative to bring our community together through reading. A single book is chosen; and programs, book discussions, and events are planned so that friends, neighbors, families and co-workers can share the experience of reading the selected book. This year’s program is in collaboration with the York Diversity Forum and the York Schools.

This year, Wonder, the award-winning book by R.J. Palacio, has been chosen for York Reads! Suited for readers of all ages, Wonder is an inspiring story about a young boy with physical challenges and the importance of kindness in his - and everyone’s - life.

Books are for sale for $9 at the York Public Library. They are also available through the Library Minerva system.
