What did people like about One Book One Independence? These are a few comments from the follow-up survey:
"The togetherness it fosters throughout the community."
"Promotes community connectedness."
"The connection made to the architecture of Independence homes helped community members learn more about their hometown and gain a new level of pride...It also stimulated a lot of interest in local history."
"I liked the incorporation of the arts, theatre, history and architecture into the project. I never saw the intiative as just promoting 'reading' or 'literacy' but as a comprehensive approach to how a piece of literature can be interdisciplinary."
