One Book One Community

One Book One Community Hutchinson MN LogoOne Book, One Community is an idea brought forth by the Hutchinson Health’s Connect Wholeheartedly Committee.

A community book read is an opportunity to connect with your family, friends, co-workers, and community around a shared topic. Avid readers know the feeling of wanting to share their current book with just about everyone they talk to.  Imagine that experience on a larger scale as a community – being able to connect with those you know and those you don’t know over the same book!


The book selected for Hutchinson’s 2018 One Book, One Community events

The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father by Kao Kalia Yang.The Song Poet by Kao Kalia Yang book cover

It will be up to you on what level you want to connect with others about it. You can view past books we have read as a community at the bottom of this page.

Pick up your copy at Cashwise (Hutchinson), The Village Shop, Target (Hutchinson), McLeod County Historical Society and Museum or borrow from the Hutchinson Public Library (book club kits are also available).
