The region-wide One Book, Many Communities is gearing up for another year of community wide programming, thought-provoking book discussions and more. Over the summer, representatives from over 21 libraries met to whittle down a substantial list of books to four titles and asked our communities to vote. The four finalist titles were selected for their timeliness of topics or overall themes, which the group felt would resonate with our communities. The winner will be announced at a reception held at the Champaign County Library on Monday, November 18 at 10:00 am.
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
