The community that reads together, can grow together, and that's the goal of One Book, One Community.
This spring, residents can participate in Auburn's first ever One Book, One Community, a program that encourages everyone to read the same book and then participate in discussions and events about it.
This year's inaugural selection is "Nature Noir" by Jordan Fisher Smith. Smith is a retired state park ranger who patrolled the American River Canyon for 14 years. His book details his experiences trying to maintain land that was destined to be underwater. The American River Canyon in Auburn was set to become a lake once the Auburn Dam was constructed. Construction never happened and the land remains open to hikers, bicyclists, horse riders and more to this day.
