What if everyone read the same book and then joined all those readers in talking about it? That's the idea behind One Book, One Community of Monroe County.  

Each year, the One Book, One Community of Monroe County selection committee chooses a readily available and discussible book written by a major author, and invites Monroe County residents to read the same book at the same time and discuss it through a series of free programs running approximately one month. Each year's events feature book discussions and free county-wide community activities related to the themes raised by these provocative and inspiring stories.  One Book, One Community of Monroe County aims to enrich the experience of reading for everyone, regardless of race, gender, age, income or the neighborhood they call home.

The One Book, One Community of Monroe County Committee has chosen What the Eyes Don't See: a Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City as the 2020 featured book selection. One Book, One Community will happen during March - April 2020.

About the Book 

What the Eyes Don't See is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, alongside a team of researchers, parent, friends, and community leaders, discovered that the children of Flint, Michigan were being exposed to lead in their tap water.  Paced like a scientific thriller, What the Eyes Don't See reveals how Hanna-Attisha discovered the lead levels in the water supply, and then battled her own government to expose that truth to the world. At the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself -- an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family's activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice.

Hanna Attisha
