Event Details

Reading while you ride is just one of the benefits of taking BART, and that’s why we’ve launched One Book, One BART – our first ever book club for riders!

The book club will feature a constellation of happenings – an author talk, a train read-in, and more. We intend to host two clubs a year, in Spring and Winter. Bookmark this page for reading guides, upcoming events, details about the official book selection, and a list of independent Bay Area bookstores that are easily accessible by BART.

Happy reading, riders.

And now, it’s time to announce our first official selection…”STAY TRUE” by Hua Hsu (Doubleday).

Set in 1990s Berkeley, “STAY TRUE” is a bracing coming-of-age story about grief, the nature of friendship, the search for self, the plurality of the immigrant experience, and the solace that can be found through music and literature. “STAY TRUE” recently won the 2023 Pulitzer Prize in Memoir.

May 17, 4pm to 6pm – Official One BART, One Book Kickoff at Rockridge Station 

  • Meet BART staff and local bookstore/library partners at Rockridge Station for an afternoon of literary-themed discussions, special merch giveaways and more. Don’t have your book yet? You’ll be able to purchase a copy at the event.
