2019 One Book Top Three finalists (and Top 11 short list) to be announced May 27th!

One Book – One Lincoln fans,

On Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th, the annual Coffee on the Dock at The Mill event will be taking place again from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 8th & “P” St. You can gather with fellow book lovers at this event, sponsored by the Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries. At 10:30 a.m., the Top 3 Finalists will be unveiled, and later that day, the online voting form on the Lincoln City Libraries’ website will be active, for readers to vote for their favorite among those Top 3 Finalists for 2019. The libraries’ One Book web pages, once revealed, will also include the shortlist of the remainder of the Top Eleven at that time.

For those of you on Facebook, here is a link to the Facebook Event Page for this “unveiling” event — Coffee on the Dock of the Mill: One Book – One Lincoln. Feel free to mark yourself as “Interested” or “Going”, and share the link with your fellow book lovers!

One Book coordinator Katie M. recently gave book talks at both the Bethany and Gere BooksTalk sessions in which she talked about all of this year’s Top Eleven titles. An audio podcast of that booktalk will also be made available online shortly after the titles are revealed! Watch for announcements of upcoming Discussion Opportunities, once the titles have been announced.
