Discover Arizona's stories


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. The 2014 ONEBOOKAZ focused on Arizonans as content creators with an eBook writing competition that was held during November 2013. As part of ONEBOOKAZ, an eBook writing competition strives to encourage writing, reading and thoughtful interaction with literature in digital formats. Beginning in April communities across the State of Arizona read the same books at the same time and participate in discussions and programs centered around that book.
