Lincoln-Skyline-Books-One-Book-One-Lincoln

One Book – One Lincoln is a community reading project co-sponsored by Lincoln City Libraries. The program encourages all adults in Lincoln and Lancaster County to read and discuss the same book at the same time. The goal of the program is to encourage reading and dialogue by creating a community-wide reading and discussion experience. 

For the 2020 program, there were 259 total nominations! That included 195 unique title nominations.
The titles had to meet all of the following 2020 vetting criteria:
  • Lincoln City Libraries must able to purchase 150 copies either in hardcover or trade paperback.
  • The book must be available in large print format, available in audio book format (either book on CD or eAudio, preferably both) and available in eBook format.
  • Juvenile titles were eliminated.
  • The committee prefers books that are no more than 500 pages in length.
  • Titles that were finalists in previous years were eliminated.

This year, 78 vetted titles made it through to the Selection Committee! Ten books made up the group of finalists and the winning three titles were announced on Memorial Day. The winning book will be announced on Labor Day, 2020!


Vote on your favorite of the three finalists through July 31!

Bad Blood – Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup — John Carreyrou

“Rigorously reported and fearlessly written, Bad Blood is a gripping story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron—a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.” — Provided by publisher.

Dear Edward — Ann Napolitano


“Dear Edward is at once a transcendent coming-of-age story, a multidimensional portrait of an unforgettable cast of characters, and a breathtaking illustration of all the ways a broken heart learns to love again.” — Provided by publisher.

The Dutch House — Ann Patchett


“Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together.” — Provided by publisher.

These seven titles made up the rest of the Top 10 list. Learn more about each of these books.
