The 2009 One Book finalists are announced

June 15, 2009 by sdc

Greetings to everyone on the One Book -- One Lincoln e-mail list!

The five finalists for this year's One Book community reading project were announced this morning in the Lincoln Journal Star newspaper and on the libraries' web site. Click this link to jump to the page describing the five titles. From among these five, the one book that will be used as the actual One Book -- One Lincoln selection (upon which special programs and book discussions will be built) will be announced later this Fall.

Extra copies of all of the titles, including Book-on-CD editions, have been added to the collection to meet the demand. You'll also find Book Club in a Bag copies, so if you're part of a Book Discussion Group, you can get these titles in sets of 10 for group discussions.

In addition to this blog, where questions and discussion topics related to the five finalists will be posted regularly throughout the summer...(help us get some back-and-forth discussions going early!) can also sign up for the One Book -- One Lincoln e-mail list for regular updates as well.  Also, if you're on the social networking site Facebook, you can become a fan of the One Book -- One Lincoln Facebook group, too!
