We are into our final week for highlighting community suggestions for the 2021 One Read title while we anxiously wait to see what titles our One Read reading panel chooses for next year’s community read.
Today’s suggested title is “Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World” by Fareed Zakaria. According to our nominator, the “author puts in perspective why some countries effectively managed the virus with few infections and deaths and less economic impact and why some countries, especially the US, failed in its response. The author breaks down history and poses considerations to be better prepared not just for the next pandemic but for other global situations such as climate change. The author articulates quality over quantity in government, how data is being collected and used, and the impact of nationalism verse globalization. Completed during the summer of 2020, it would be interesting to discuss how the world is doing one year later.”
