RALEIGH — For the fifth consecutive year, Wake County's public libraries are sponsoring Wake Reads Together.
Through Nov. 7, readers across Wake County can vote on a book the county will be reading and discussing from January through March.
Librarians selected 10 titles of note that had broad appeal and would lend themselves to ancillary programs and events. Now the library system's patrons are being asked to pick one title from the field. The 10 titles are:
•"Autobiography of a Face," by Lucy Grealy.
•"Frankenstein," by Mary Shelley.
•"The Memory Keeper's Daughter," by Kim Edwards.
•"Big Fish," by Daniel Wallace.
•"Ender's Game," by Orson Scott Card.
•"47," by Walter Mosley.
•"The Namesake," by Jhumpa Lahiri.
•"Bel Canto," by Ann Patchett.
•"Never Let Me Go," by Kazuo Ishiguro.
•"The Handmaid's Tale," by Margaret Atwood.
Voters can cast a ballot at any Wake County public library or by visiting the Wake Reads Together link in the library portion of www.wakegov.com. More information about each book is available online and in each library.
Wake Reads Together attempts to engage the entire community in reading the same book at the same time and then coming together to discuss the work.
