Announcing the 2013 One Book, One Philadelphia Selection!

By Michelle S. Wed, October 24, 2012

We are pleased to announce that the 2013 One Book, One Philadelphia featured selection is Julie Otsuka's The Buddha in the Attic. The Buddha in the Attic is a beautifully crafted, poetic novel that illuminates the poignant, powerful stories of Japanese "picture brides" who came to the United States during the early 1900s, tracing their experiences through both peacetime and the onset of World War II. A joint project of the Office of the Mayor and the Free Library of Philadelphia, One Book, One Philadelphia, now in its 11th season, will kick off eight inspired weeks of discussions, performances, workshops, and more on January 17 with a special appearance by author Julie Otsuka. So check out your copy of The Buddha in the Attic today and get reading!
