Readers in Lincoln cast their votes in June and July, and by an overwhelming majority, the title you all selected for this year's One Book One Lincoln title was Millard's engrossing look at the assassination of President James A. Garfield.
You can visit this year's official One Book - One Lincoln website for resources related to this year's selected title. The special programs for this year are still being finalized, and we'll announce those on the libraries' website, on Facebook, and via the One Book - One Lincoln e-mail list as soon as possible.

The 2011 One Book - One Lincoln selection, Cutting for Stone, is set in large part in a mission hospital located in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. Missing Hospital, as it is known to locals, is staffed primarily by "ferengi" or foreigners: doctors and nurses from Britain and India and support staff from the neighboring region of Eritrea. Abraham Verghese's novel is set against political unrest and the theme of belonging.
Program panelists include Dr. Yvonne Davenport, MD (Ob-Gyn) and 2011 One Book-One Lincoln selection committee member; Elizabeth Jacobs-Fitzgerald, RNC-OB, BSN; Karen McGivney-Liechti, CNM, MSN; and Jearlyn Schumacher, CNM
This event is free and open to the public. Because of the subject matter of this program, some material may not be suitable for young children.
Come join us for this final 2011 One Book - One Lincoln program!
