Photo of One Book, One Community: The Hope is in the Conversation
"We say that at home, we can 'be ourselves.' Everywhere else, we are someone else. At home, we remove our masks." - Matthew Desmond

What if everyone in Kitsap came together for one brave conversation on Housing Insecurity?
This year, that is exactly what the Kitsap Regional Library invites our community to do. From December to March, we invite you to participate in a shared reading and learning experience called One Book, One Community with the goal of sparking a community-wide conversation across Kitsap.

As part of Kitsap Regional Library’s annual One Book, One Community program, the Library will host an afternoon of learning and community conversation. Learn about the work of local organizations to address housing insecurity and homelessness in Kitsap and practice the art of neighborly conversation on this important topic. This is a free event open to the public and light refreshments served.

In partnership with Kitsap County’s Division on Housing and Homelessness, the Dispute and Resolution Center of Kitsap County, and Kitsap Connect.

We would like to ensure anyone in the community can participate in this discussion. If you require accommodations to attend, please contact Lisa Lechuga, Community Engagement Manager at (360) 405-9151 or by email

  • When: Saturday, February 22, noon-3 p.m.
  • Recommended for all ages
