La Cañada Flintridge, California


Welcome to the La Cañada Flintridge OneCityOneBook Website

                             "Books are the carriers of civilization.  Without books,

                              history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled,

                              thought and speculation at a standstill."

                                                                               - BARBARA TUCHMAN                                                  




The La Cañada Flintridge OneCityOneBook Committee was created in 2004 to encourage our community to read and discuss a single book.  Our purpose is to promote an awareness of and appreciation for good literature.


We seek works with broad community appeal, from established Southern California authors .  We choose primarily from fiction, memoir and history.
