The One Book Project was led by the Kern County Library and California State University, Bakersfield’s First Year Experience Program. Several juvenile companion titles were offered, including One Well: The Story of Water by Rochelle Strass, All the Water in the World by George Ella Lyon, and A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Great community discussion came out of the programming created for this read to explore our strange, complex relationship with water and how we take it for granted. At the time, California was in a desperate battle to hold off a water catastrophe during the drought.
