Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination for the 2021 One Read book! Nominations are now closed, but we will highlight some of the suggested titles here at oneread.dbrl.org throughout the month of December. In January, our reading panel will meet to discuss all of the nominations and begin the process of narrowing down the list of finalists for a public vote in April.
As part of this year’s One Read program, we invited you to take inspiration from “A Gentleman in Moscow” and tell a nostalgic tale in 250 words or less. The stories could have been about anything and anyone, but we asked to make sure it evokes longing, explores a memory or reflects on better days past.
Thank you to everyone who entered and shared your stories of nostalgia.
Our two winners are Bethany Bade and Grace Gomez-Polacio. Honorable mentions go to Jenna Cunigan and Bonnie Zelenak.
We are excited to share these stories with you! Read More
