One Book One Community  

 The One Book One Community 2018 selection, “Sing for Your Life” activities have begun!


Author Daniel Bergner gave audiences at the Suncoast Technical College in North Port and at the Sarasota Opera House the powerful and compelling story behind the life of Ryan Speedo Green, the subject of “Sing For Your Life”. Bergner expanded our understanding of Ryan’s challenges and climb from a violent childhood to the stage of the Metropolitan Opera. A total of over 600 people heard Ryan’s story and how this book came to be.  

Your local library may be hosting book discussion groups, and you can create an instant book club yourself with our “Sing For Your Life” Book Club Bags. Each bag contains 10 paperback copies of the book along with book discussion questions.

Although the author events have passed, we still encourage you to give this book a try, and we look forward to seeing you at a One Book event!

View our calendar for a complete list of One Book library events!
