Get ready for the largest book club!
The “One Book, One New York” returns to New York City after a successful inaugural run last year. This year’s initiative is a collaboration between the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, Vulture and New York Magazine. It aims to promote regular reading habits and have a one book read citywide.
New Yorkers have a chance to vote for their reading choice by visiting www.nyc.gov/onebook during the month of April. The winner will be chosen on May 3. Various events will be held at libraries and bookstores across the city.
Here are the nominees:
Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin
Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue
White Tears by Hari Kunzru
When I Was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago
