Sarasota County Libraries One Book One Community Unveils Top Finalists

Arts & Culture

The Sarasota County Libraries One Book One Community committee has selected the top seven finalists for their 2024 book selection to be featured in a community-wide book discussion and author talk. The One Book One Community committee is made up of library staff from all 10 county library branches. Throughout the year, they discuss and consider multiple books before carefully selecting a book to bring the community together through a shared love of reading. The top seven selections are as follows, The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean. The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune. An Immense World by Ed Yong. Island of Sea Women by Lisa See. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus. Now is Not the Time to Panic by Kevin Wilson. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. The One Book One Community program is a catalyst for bringing people together to express ideas that will spark conversation, discussion, and relationships. The program can instigate a shared sense of community by advocating the common goal of reading the same piece of literature concurrently. In March, the author of the selected book will visit Sarasota for a book talk. In addition, libraries and community partner organizations will hold book discussions and present programs and events around the book, with every local branch participating.
