One City One Story: 'Karma'

Imagine if Boston had a city-wide book club. Everyone would read the same story, and then come together to discuss it. This is the idea behind the Boston Book Festival's One City One Story project.

Each year, they print 30,000 copies of a short story and distribute them for free around the city. This year's selection is "Karma" by the Cambridge-based writer Rishi Reddi.

Rishi Reddi will be leading town hall-style discussions of 'Karma' later this month. You can download your copy here, or find a list of locations to pick up a copy here.
