One City, One Book
One City, One Book: Walnut Creek Reads 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 typically announced in May-June and the community events are planned in the fall giving the community the summer months to read and enjoy the book.
Now in its seventh year, One City, One Book:Walnut Creek Reads is presented by the Walnut Creek Library Foundation and Contra Costa County Library. Please sign up for our e news below to receive program information.

2012 One City One Book: The Killer Angels
The winner of the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, The Killer Angels tells the story of the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg through the eyes and thoughts of the various commanders of both armies. The book is considered by many to be the best Civil War novel ever written and was selected in anticipation of the Walnut Creek Library’s hosting of a distinctive national traveling exhibit titled “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” opening in Walnut Creek on December 14, 2012.
