We are highlighting some of the titles that members of the community have suggested for next year’s One Read. The One Read reading panel will begin narrowing down the list in January to about 10 titles that will all be reviewed for adaptability and suitability for community-wide programming. You can learn more about the process here.
“The Wolf Wants In” by Laura McHugh is about small town life in mid-America caught in economic decline and in the grips of the opioid epidemic but with a nostalgia for what once was. This suspenseful mystery set in Kansas and is told from the point of view of two women whose stories masterfully intertwine. The nominator of this book pointed out that McHugh “is a local author and this would show support.”
