One Book – One Lincoln fans,
Time is running out for you to cast your vote for your favorite among the three 2019 One Book – One Lincoln finalists! Voting ends at midnight, July 31st, and the winning title will be announced on Labor Day 2019.
This year’s finalists are: The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai, The Far Away Brothers by Lauren Markham, and There There by Tommy Orange.
You can vote four different ways:
1. The online voting form, accessible at the 2019 Finalists Page (also via the direct link to the Voting Form!)
2. Traditional paper ballots at each library location.
3. On Facebook — while logged into Facebook, visit the One Book – One Lincoln Facebook page, look for the three posts (one per title) describing this year’s finalists — click “Like” or “Love” on the post(s) for the title(s) you wish to vote for.
4. On Twitter — while logged into your Twitter account, post a tweet using one of these 3 hashtags: #obol2019great, #obol2019far or #obol2019there, depending on which title you wish to vote for.
Thanks for participating in One Book – One Lincoln once again, and watch for updates about our scheduled programming, tied into all three finalist books, coming soon!
And just a reminder — if you’re a member of a book group, and would like to have one of our library staff come and lead your discussion of any of this year’s finalist titles, you can contact us at the info at the bottom of the 2019 Finalists Page as well!
P.S.: Also a reminder — you can nominate titles for future “One Book” consideration year-round, via our online One Book – One Lincoln Nomination Form. If you’ve read a good “new” book, please consider nominating it for next year!
