In January, our One Read reading panel will begin narrowing down the list of books nominated for our community-wide reading program. In the meantime, we are highlighting just some of these suggested titles so you can see what other local readers are enjoying.
The next One Read nomination we’ll be looking at is “Ordinary Grace” by William Kent Krueger. As one reader put, “this coming of age story follows a boy through a life-changing summer that shapes his life and his understanding of his family and neighbors. This would be a good choice for a community-wide read as it explores many topics: the haves vs. the have-nots in small town America, tension between whites and Native Americans, the power of music and death’s role in shaping the living.”
Stay tuned to more nominees throughout the month of December!
