Everyone’s Reading 2017
Southeastern Michigan Libraries Reading Together
What is Everyone's Reading?
Everyone's Reading is a community wide reading program sponsored by metro Detroit public libraries in Oakland, Wayne and Macomb counties. Now in its sixteenth year, Everyone's Reading promotes community dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book.

The 2017 Everyone's Reading selection is Once In A Great City: A Detroit Story by David Maraniss.

This year we are pleased to once again partner with the Detroit Institute of Arts. The DIA is also hosting an appearance by David Maraniss at the museum on Tuesday, May 23. More information about Art + Authors may be found on the DIA's website.
