Each year, students at Park City High School and other community members open the pages of the same book and read.

One Book One Community, as it is called, encourages students and adults in Park City to all read a specified book. The program culminates with a visit from the author. After the program was moved to the winter last school year, it is expected to again take place in the fall, with a visit scheduled for Oct. 16 and 17. The book that was selected was "The Rent Collector" from Camron Wright.
