Brought to Arizona in 2002, and coordinated by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, ONEBOOKAZ is an exciting program that brings communities together through literature. Beginning in April every year, this program encourages communities across the State of Arizona to read the same book at the same time and participate in discussions and programs centered around that book. The 2014 ONEBOOKAZ will focus on Arizonans as content creators with an eBook writing competition held during November with the selections available for digital download during April 2014.
