If all of eastern Connecticut were to read one book, which would it be?
Librarians, educators and community members gather each year with that simple assignment – pick one book that 500,000 or so people who live east of the Connecticut River can read and talk about.
2014 ~ What will we read next?
The book selection committee is seeking nominations for the 2014 “One Book One Region.”
The book must be readily available in paperback, and the author should be living and possibly available for a visit. The content of the story should be age appropiate (target group is 14 and older), appeal to both genders and create discussion or have an important message for the readers.
