In late 2011, Florida Library Association (FLA) President Gloria Colvin announced the selection of Our Iceberg is Melting: Changing and Succeeding under Any Conditions for the inaugural “One Book, One State” program at the 2012 FLA  Annual Conference. The program, sponsored by the FLA Leadership Development Committee, provides a way to create a network of activities and conversations about leadership throughout the state, in the words of committee member, Elizabeth Curry, who proposed the idea. Curry stated that in an era where travel to professional development activities is often not possible, a program such as this offers opportunities for librarians and library staff around the state of Florida, regardless the area of librarianship, to share ideas about leadership based on the common experience of reading the same book.
