Program Overview

Winn-Dixie Book CoverOne Book | One Minnesota is a new statewide book club that invites Minnesotans of all ages to read a common title and come together virtually to enjoy, reflect, and discuss.

Libraries are essential for connection, and through One Book | One Minnesota, libraries across the state – in partnership with local schools – will connect their communities through stories. The program aims to bring Minnesotans closer together during this time of distance and adversity.

The first featured book selection is Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo (Candlewick Press).

Program Details

During the months of April and May, through their local libraries, Minnesotans will be invited to read the featured book selection and will have access to author videos, reading guides, and virtual book club discussions. All Minnesotans will be invited to participate in a statewide virtual discussion with the author in May.

About the Book

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Because of Winn-Dixie is a children's novel written by Minnesota author Kate DiCamillo, published in 2000, and winner of a Newbery Honor distinction, the Josette Frank Award, and the Mark Twain Award. The classic tale follows the story of ten-year-old India Opal Buloni who, one summer day, goes down to the local supermarket for some groceries and instead comes home with a dog. But Winn-Dixie is no ordinary dog, and this is where the story really begins. Because of Winn-Dixie is written for middle grade readers and older, and this story of friendship will delight readers of all ages.
