Suggest A Book

    The One Book Selection Committee takes suggestions year round for their process. Any time you read or hear about a book that you think might be a good One Book pick, please let us know.  They start with a very long list and winnow it down to the three that will be voted on.  If your title isn't submitted in time for the 2015 process, don't worry - they will save it for the following year, so feel free to recommend titles at any time. Please include the book title, author's name, a short description of the book, and why you think it would be a good One Book, One Community choice. Send an email to
