This spring’s One Book One Community book is the Charles Dickens classic, “Oliver Twist.”

Each year, two books are chosen in the spring and summer, respectively, as official One Book One Community selections, according to an East Baton Rouge Parish library system news release.

The purpose of One Book One Community is to provide readers with a shared reading experience that leads to open dialogue.

Copies of “Oliver Twist” are available at any library branch as well as bookstores.

Check http://www.ebrpl.com or http://www.ReadOneBook.org each month this spring for “Oliver Twist” event details.
