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.
Fiction, nonfiction, memoir and everything in between. All kinds of books get nominated for One Read, and “Furiously Happy” is one that is quite unique, if the cover is any indication. I’ll let our nominator explain: “Jenny Lawson looks at mental illness from a very personal perspective with such humor and compassion. She does an incredible job of destigmatizing and humanizing an issue that seems to be ever present in every community, no matter what race, age, gender or economic status.”
