Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads Book Finalists

The Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area has a decade-long history of successful community reads programs which encourage all of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti to read one book. University, Library, bookstore and community representatives from both Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti have now been busily planning Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2012.

In 2012, the program will encourage readers of all ages to explore the subject of Language: How We Communicate.

A screening committee has narrowed book choices covering this theme down to three titles:

Eva Hoffman, Lost In Translation: A Life In A New Language. New York: E.P Dutton, 1989.
Susan Schaller, A Man Without Words. New York: Summit Books, 1991.
Daniel Tammet, Born On A Blue Day: Inside The Extraordinary Mind Of An Autistic Savant. New York: Free Press, 2007.
