Library kicks off One Book Charleston County in October

  • Saturday, October 5, 2013

Charleston County Public Library is kicking off its One Book Charleston County in October with programs ranging from Star Wars costume contests to programs looking back at the class system of historic Charleston.

This year’s book is “Divergent” by Veronica Roth, a critically acclaimed and huge bestseller about a futuristic society where residents are separated into one of five distinct groups, or factions based on their beliefs and talents. The goal of One Book is to unite local residents to read, attend events and discuss the core issues in a single book.

“Divergent,” the first in a trilogy of novels by Roth, is being compared to the blockbuster, “The Hunger Games.” Attracting the attention of Hollywood, the novel is being released in March as a major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet.

In addition to the special One Book Spotlight Events planned in October, the library identified some of its regular programs that fit the definition of one of the factions from Roth’s book.

More than 450 copies of “Divergent” are available for check out at its 16 branch libraries.

Additionally, the book is available on audio CD and can be downloaded free as an eBook or audio book from the library’s web site - www.ccpl.org.
