The region-wide One Book, Many Communities is gearing up for another year of community wide programming, thought-provoking book discussions and more and we need your help to select the one title we will all read in 2020! Over the summer, representatives from over 21 libraries have met to whittle down a substantial list of books to four titles that we would like our communities to vote on. The four finalist titles were selected for their timeliness of topics or overall themes, which the group felt would resonate with our communities.
The finalists are:
• The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú
• The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark
• Circe by Madeline Miller
• The Widows by Jess Montgomery
Votes were collected throughout September and the winner of the community wide ballot will be announced in early November.
