All month Daniel Boone Regional Library is taking your nominations for One Read 2016 and highlighting some of the suggestions we’ve received so far.
An area reader nominated “This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. the Climate” by Naomi Klein. In this work of nonfiction, Klein argues that climate change isn’t just another issue to be neatly filed between taxes and health care. It’s an alarm that calls us to fix an economic system that is already failing us in many ways. Our nominator thinks this would make a great One Read because “climate change is changing every person’s life on this planet, yet a significant number of people have been brainwashed into thinking it is a hoax. This book talks about how we can use this crisis to make a positive change in the world.”
