The Open Books Project was a Small Press Distribution program to reach out to seniors by supporting book groups.
From 2011 through 2013 several book groups took place in three Marin County libraries and in a community center in Mill Valley. Open Books continues whenever people get in touch with SPD and want to plan a book group or reading group. For more information about the groups or to create your own book group please contact SPD at firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2015 SPD is partnering with Oakland Public Library and novelist Jacqueline Luckett to bring "Open Books" book clubs to Oakland in the form of the Last Friday Book Club.

This pilot project recognized that the growing population of highly literate seniors (and others) in California (and elsewhere) would benefit from guided access to SPD's independently published books. The Open Books Project provides facilitators, supporting materials and free SPD books for everyone participating in the program.
