The idea of community reading programs originated in 1998, when the Washington Center for the Book sponsored "If All of Seattle Read the Same Book." For four days, Russell Banks visited the community for programs and discussions about his book, The Sweet Hereafter. In the years since, similar programs, under names like "One City, One Book," "The Big Read," and others, have been held throughout the US.
