Library focuses on Maus: The Allentown (Pa.) Morning Call reports that the Bucks County Free Library has selected Maus as the featured title for its first One Book One Bucks County reading and discussion program. Throughout 2005, residents will be encouraged to read the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel, and the library will organize activities devoted to Holocaust studies and the technique of comic art.

The library will buy 500 copies of Maus, making them available in branches as well as post offices, coffee shops and other venues. Other finalists for the inaugural series were Yossel: April 19, 1943 and Persepolis.
