One Book - One Bozeman

One Book - One Bozeman is a community-wide read program designed to encourage engaged discussion and literacy through the reading of a common book. The Bozeman Public Library is partnering with Bozeman Schools and local businesses to bring a successful and comprehensive program to our town to promote community building and civic engagement.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban written by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb has been selected by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation as the official book for the 2014 One Book – One Bozeman. The book, published last October by Little, Brown and Company, describes Malala's childhood education in the Swat Valley of Pakistan, her refusal to be silent when the Taliban took control and tried to end her education, and her emergence as a global symbol of peaceful protest and supporter of education. I Am Malala was selected as the recommended read for One Book – One Bozeman because it emphasizes the importance of education for all and introduces readers to a complex Pakistani culture that is very different from our own.
