A great Chicago program that started in 2001 highlights a book twice a year, or in this case a play, that everyone can read together and discuss all throughout the city or in your community.  By reading and discussing this book and its contents we start a dialogue.  Together we can gain knowledge and background in order to discuss, be enriched, be able to pull the same materials for comparison and contrasting or just read inorder to enlighten and inspire us. 

Mayor Daley announced the most recent One Book, One Chicago pick on Thursday and it is The Crucible by Arthur Miller. This is the 2nd play selection of the last 13 selections.  Along with this selection something new has been added to the One Book, One Chicago program.  Our local treasure Steppenwolf Theatre Company will be offering their stage interpretation of The Crucible from September 13- November 11th.  Plenty of time to pick up the book and go see the Steppenwolf production, http://www.steppenwolf.org/boxoffice/productions/index.aspx?id=421

Additionally, Steppenwolf in conjunction with the Chicago Public Libraries will be having four discussions about The Cruciblehttp://www.steppenwolf.org/calendar/detail.aspx?id=137.  So many ways to participate, pick up a copy today of The Crucible. According to Gary Washburn of the Chicago Tribune,  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-book_webaug31,1,5805195.story?ctrack=3&cset=true there are more then 2,000 copies available of the The Crucible at city libraries and if you add on the suburban libraries that is alot of copies indeed. Don’t miss out.
