One Book, One New York Returns for the Summer

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
