Celebrating Our 8th Season
One Book One Siouxland shares ideas and builds community through the experience of reading and discussing the same book, and viewing a film adaptation of the story. After a classic mystery in 2011 and a science fiction classic in 2012, the tri-state community-wide reading initiative presents Shane, a classic western by Jack Schaefer.
First published in 1949, Shane has sold over 12 million copies and been translated into 30 foreign languages. In 1985, the Western Writers of America named it the best Western novel ever written.
Sponsors for One Book One Siouxland include the Sioux City Public Library, the South Sioux City Public Library and the North Sioux City Community Library, in partnership with The Institute for Lifelong Learning, Western Iowa Tech Community College and Morningside College.
