One Book

One Book ChelmsfordChelmsford’s One Book program is a community-wide reading program where we encourage all residents to read a selected title and participate in programming themed to the book.  The One Book title for the upcoming year is selected some time in the late Fall and the Library provides free copies of the book starting at the kickoff event during the town’s February Winterfest.  A variety of related programs over the next several months are offered and the author comes to visit (whenever possible) in the early spring.

The theme for the 2016 One Book Chelmsford is “Keeping Chelmsford in Suspense!” We have booked several suspense genre authors and you will be able to read one of three selections for your One Book Chelmsford choice:

The Columbus affair
by Steve Berry
The Other Woman
by Hank Phillippi Ryan
There was an Old Woman
by Hallie Ephron
