    • Contribute to thoughtful discussions about potential titles
    • Attend the monthly meetings
    • Attend and help publicize the One Book author talk and any supporting programs 

How long do I get to serve on the One Book Committee?

One Book Committee members serve a 4 year term on the committee. 

When will I find out whether my application was accepted?

  • The One Book recruitment team will review applications in June and invite select applicants to move forward to the interview process, which will take place in late June or early July. 
  • If your application is not accepted, you will be notified by email in July.

I already applied to be on the committee before. Can I apply again?

Yes! With so many applicants and so few spaces, we would love to hear from you again!
