Reading, Writing, and Growing Together in Southwestern Indiana
This year's One Book One Community title is This I Believe: the Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women. This collection of essays from the 1950s and today is based on the National Public Radio series of the same name. In addition to holding book discussions, the EVPL will host co-editor and radio series producer Dan Gediman on Monday, November 24, 7:30pm at UE's Shanklin Theatre.
What do you believe in? We asked this back in June, when we started accepting essays of personal convictions. Since then, we've received over 80 essays from patrons & staff members! All of these essays can be viewed online.
We want to hear from you! If you'd like to submit an essay and haven't yet done so, Sunday, November 2 is the last day to do so! Visit the Contribute an Essay page ASAP to submit yours. Selected essays submitted to the EVPL may be posted on our website, read on WNIN Radio, published in the Evansville Courier & Press, or read at the concluding event on Monday, November 24. We've partnered with ThisIBelieve.org, so when submitting your essay you may also choose to send it to them; they may post the essay on their website and possibly broadcast it on NPR (including a $200 prize for your contribution)!
Read the essays others have submitted. Submit your own. Participate in a book discussion. Then join us Monday, November 24 at 7:30pm as we welcome Dan Gediman!
