2014 Participant Survey

One Book, One San Diego is a community reading program managed by KPBS in partnership with the San Diego County Library and the San Diego Public Library, with major support provided by the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation and Jerome's Furniture, and additional support provided by Lloyd Pest Control.

The purpose of the program is to encourage residents to join together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book. The program also encourages participation in related events, discussions of the ideas raised in the featured books, and examination of how these ideas connect with our daily lives and local communities.
