Boo’s Bestseller Selected as “One Book, One Community” Title

The City of East Lansing and Michigan State University announced the OBOC program’s 11th anniversary book selection, “Behind the Beautiful Forevers,” by New York Times bestselling author Katherine Boo.

What is East Lansing’s One Book, One Community? The annual One Book, One Community program, co-sponsored by the City of East Lansing and Michigan State University, encourages the city-university community to read the same book and come together to discuss it in a variety of settings. The book is also an assigned reading for all incoming Michigan State University freshmen. Pick up a copy of this year’s book and turn the pages with the community.

*Support your local bookstore, library, and universities. It matters.
