One Book, One South, Jr. 

One Book, One South, (Jr.) returns with Raymie Nightingale, the new book by Kate DiCamillo

Engage your customers and strengthen your ties with local schools, libraries and literacy programs.

The Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) is partnering with Candlewick Press to bring readers One Book, One South, Jr. – a Southern-wide “one book” event featuring Raymie Nightingale, the newest book by the award-winning and much beloved author, Kate DiCamillo. Raymie Nightingale is the first children's book to be selected for SIBA's One Book, One South program (hence the "Jr."), and in addition to the target audience of 10 and up, SIBA feels the book has a great crossover appeal.

Raymie Nightingale releases on April 12, 2016 and will be the subject of a coordinated promotion across SIBA member bookstores, both in-store and online, culminating in a Facebook event on May 6, 2016 capping off Children’s Book Week.  In the period leading up to the Q&A, bookstores will encourage their customers to submit questions in advance, reach out to librarians and teachers in their communities, and feature the book in their own newsletters and displays. Kate DiCamillo and Raymie Nightingale will be featured in SIBA’s popular newsletter for Southern literature, Lady Banks’ Commonplace Book in the weeks leading up to the Facebook event.
