What if everyone in South Dakota read the same book?

Since 2003, the One Book South Dakota program has encouraged everyone across South Dakota to read and discuss the same novel or memoir throughout the course of a year. Community and book groups recieve books on loan and can invite a scholar from the SDHC list to facilitate their discussion.

Many times, a One Book South Dakota event will feature a variety of experiences that relate to the book. For example, a book discussion of Dan O'Brien's "Buffalo for the Broken Heart" might also include a sampling of bison meat or a presentation by a local bison rancher. The program encourages an interactive and comprehensive discussion of the text as it relates to our everyday lives. The 2014 One Book SD is "Dakota" by Kathleen Norris (pictured below).
