And then there were two. Choosing from more than 100 selections, the One Read reading panel narrowed the competition down to two finalists, The Tiger’s Wife and Turn of Mind to take the title. One Read is a 10-year-old Columbia-wide reading program that Daniel Boone Regional Library sponsors. The panel consists of local librarians, teachers and community members. Each year, the public submits their suggestions of titles before the panel narrows down the list to 10 titles. Finally, the panel chooses two competitors that are put up for public vote. The winner is then the suggested book for the community to read and discuss. Read on for a synopsis of the two finalists, then head over to dbrl.org to vote for your favorite until April 20th.
