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.
Today’s nomination is for “The Yellow House” by Sarah M. Broom, which tells the story of a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America’s most mythologized cities, New Orleans. The nominator of this book had this to say, “every reader has a home in their past they vividly remember. I’m not sure any have been as vividly, imaginatively and pointedly remembered as this one.”
Check back on Friday for the next suggestion for One Read 2021!
