And the title for 2008 is...

September 08, 2008 by sdc

...Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale. This novel, a debut work from author Setterfield, is a tribute to the tradition of gothic novels from years gone by. A shy, introverted woman finds herself inexplicably caught up in a mystery that goes back many years, complete with hauntings, mysterious twins, an unexplained fire, a reclusive author and more twists and turns than a hedge maze in a classic English garden!

Join us as we all read The Thirteenth Tale, then come to one of the many book discussion opportunities or special events and programs. We also encourage you to explore the nooks and crannies of this year's official One Book -- One Lincoln web site, which provides background about the book, the author, and the many themes touched on throughout the novel.

Thanks for reading with us...we look forward to hearing what you think about The Thirteenth Tale.
