Mary Kay Andrews
The Cape May County Public Library is delighted to announce the return of our annual One Book, One Cape May community initiative. One Book, One Cape May is a countywide literary event that encourages members of the Cape May County community to celebrate the same author at the same time, while engaging with events throughout the county library system that support the central themes of their work. By building bridges between communities and generations through reading, we hope to help promote reading as a lifelong pursuit and to work toward building a community that celebrates literacy together.

Our fourth annual One Book, One Cape May initiative will take place at every Cape May County Public Library branch during May 2018. This year’s One Book bestselling author is Mary Kay Andrews. Mary Kay Andrews is the New York Times bestselling author of 24 novels including The Weekenders, Beach Town, Ladies Night, Summer Rental, and The Beach House Cookbook.
