2017 Selection: The Book That Matters Most


The Read Across McKinney book for 2017 is The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood, an enthralling novel about love, loss, secrets, friendship, and the healing power of literature.

Read across McKinney (RAM) is a one book/one community program designed to cultivate a culture of reading and discussion by bringing our growing community together around one great book.  The idea behind RAM is to have all residents read the same book at the same time to create a citywide book club. We schedule this event to coincide with the National Friends of the Library Week, a program of the American Library Association.
