Christina Baker Kline a Smash Hit at One Book One Philadelphia

From October through March each year, the Philadelphia Free Library spearheads an extensive community-wide reading program called “One Book One Philadelphia“. Programming for the event includes several presentations at venues throughout the city by the author whose book was selected as the featured title that year.

Christina Baker Kline‘s novel “Orphan Train” was the selected title for One Book One Philadelphia 2015, and Kline just completed her final events in Philly. Among this year’s most powerful programming events was an author visit to Philadelphia’s Achieving Independence Center, a facility that supports young adults aging out of the foster care system.

As the event coordinator at the Philadelphia Free Library said: “Last week was amazing… The audience fell in love with Christina. She was so magnetic and enthusiastic. She really is not just a gifted writer, but a presenter too.” To invite Christina Baker Kline to speak at your next event, contact Books In Common.
