We just got an exciting email from the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County concerning it’s 2010 Featured Book of the Month Series:
The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has launched a new edition of its Featured Book of the Month Series. Based on the success of the inaugural series for adults in 2009, the 2010 series will feature a selection for readers of all ages! One fiction or nonfiction title will be chosen for children, teens, and adults to read and enjoy each month. These well-written books offer broad appeal, but you may not find them on a bestseller list. They represent the seemingly overlooked literary triumphs in the Library’s collection.
January’s selection for children is The Underneath by Kathi Appelt; for teens, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie; and for adults it’s, Farewell, My Subaru by Doug Fine, who will visit the Main Library on February 6 as part of the 2010 Author Series.
