About One Book & Previous Reads

One Book One Putnam has been encouraging the residents of Putnam County to read and discuss a single book each year since 2005. Books have spanned genres and authors. Some have been about our local area, others about Florida and the Southeast. All have been chosen in the belief that they, in some way, touch our residents and instigate discussion among them.
