ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics and continuity of ‘One Book, One City’ community reading campaign in the U.S.A. An analysis of 584 ‘One Book’ projects registered in the Library of Congress, the Center for the Books shows that this innovative model of reading campaign has been diffused through three stages: the beginning(1998-2001), the growth (2002-2006), and the second take-off(2007-present). The stability of more than fifty ‘One Book’ projects was confirmed and the continuing diffusion of ‘One Book’ model through ‘The Big Read’ Initiative and some projects' attempt to try new directions seem worth observing.
