Thank you to all who participated and supported Walnut Creek’s 2017 One City One Book! This year’s book selection — Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly– was chosen by voters and inspired a fun and interactive line-up of programming. We learned about women on the home front during WWII; built and launched model rockets in civic park; discovered African-American tech pioneers in Silicon Valley; and engaged in a lively book discussion. 

We hope you will join us for future One City One Book readings and events. Next year’s selection will be announced in July 2018.


One City One Book is a “citywide book club” that encourages the community to read the selection and participate in a series of events that celebrate the book. The annual choice is announced in the summer and community events are planned for the fall giving the community time to read and enjoy the book. Now in its twelfth year, One City One Book is presented by the Walnut Creek Library Foundation and Contra Costa County Library. View previous book selections HERE.
