If All Arkansas Read the Same Book

If All Arkansas Read the Same Book

Since 2001, If All Arkansas Read the Same Book is an annual, statewide reading program designed to encourage the enjoyment of reading and promote book discussion in libraries of all types across Arkansas.

The selection for 2024’s If All Arkansas Read the Same Book is “The Secret Book of Flora Lea” by Patti Callahan Henry.

A novel inspired by the true story of child evacuees from London during WWII, this novel explores what happens when a woman stumbles across a mysterious children’s book and long-held secrets about her missing sister and their childhood seen in the English countryside come to the surface.
