We are currently taking your suggestions for our 2019 One Read title, and we’ll be highlighting some of these books here at oneread.org so you can see what other community members are reading and enjoying. All of these titles will be considered by our reading panel as they begin narrowing the list of suggestions.
The first suggestion we’re highlighting is “There There” by Tommy Orange, which has made it to the shortlist for the Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction. This title has already received a couple of nominations. In this book you follow the interconnected lives of several Native Americans living in present day Oakland, California. One reader described this book as “a compelling, multiple character portrait of the ‘urban native,’ city-living Native Americans in the current day.”
Let us know what you think our community should read in 2019 by filling out a suggestion form at any of our branches, the bookmobile, or online at oneread.org by November 30.
