With more One Book One Peninsula (OBOP) program activities coming up, including the Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle Festival to be held at Marymount California University on September 27, the community-wide common reading program has been featured on Palos Verdes Peninsula News! In collaboration with Palos Verdes Library District, Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, and Palos Verdes Art Center, we have truly united our community to discuss and take action in regards to this year's book selection and overall theme: Garbology.

Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash, by Edward Humes, provides an eye-opening account of just how much our society wastes, the cost of it, and how some families, communities, and nations are finding a way back from waste so that our legacy to the future won't be buried in our landfills.

The Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle Festival will take place on September 27 from 12 PM to 1:30 PM and will feature interactive games and demos. The festival will also feature the "Gar-Ball," an art piece created by Palos Verdes Art Center intern Alan Wang, that is designed to collect empty plastic water bottles. In addition, Garbology Author, Edward Humes will be on campus from 12 to 1pm! Attendance is free.
