Voting is now open for Clinton County Reads 2018. You can vote for the book that piques your interest or a favorite you want to re-read — use your own criteria to help you choose. You can pick up a ballot to vote at the library.
The annual county-wide reading program is entering its 13th year. Each fall season, our community votes for a book for us to read together. The voting will last until Dec. 14, and the chosen book will be announced after the first of the year. In the spring, the Clinton County Reads Steering Committee will host local book discussions, related programs, and a closing dinner— always a highlight of the year!
Titles appearing on the 2018 ballot are: “The Handmaid’s Tale,” by Margaret Atwood; “A Mother’s Reckoning,” by Sue Klebold and Andres Solomon; “The Hate U Give,” by Angie Thomas; and “The Underground Railroad,” by Colson Whitehead.
Brief descriptions of the books appear on the ballot, have been printed in the News Journal, and can be seen on the Clinton County Reads Facebook page. Participants are encouraged to vote based solely on interest in a book — reading each book before voting is not necessary.
Clinton County Reads 2018 book discussions and other activities will begin in March.
