Chicago is known for its creative projects--remember the funky art cows displayed throughout the city in 1999? One Book, One Chicago provides more evidence of this civic spirit. Coordinated by the City of Chicago and the Chicago Public Library, One Book, One Chicago came about three years ago from a simple yet powerful idea: What if an entire city read the same book together? The most recent pick, Willa Cather's My Antonia, was read by thousands of the city's denizens and discussed at local libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops over a week's time. A print and Web resource guide provided thought-provoking questions to help spark the conversations. Educators looking to plan a similar, if perhaps smaller-scale, event in their own community should take advantage of the project Web site for details on how Chicago did it, as well as reading guides for My Antonia, Night, and To Kill A Mockingbird. www.chipublib.org/003cpl/oboc/oboc. …
