**Suggestions for the 2019 Washtenaw Read are now closed. Thank you for your suggestions!**

Read a good book lately? Suggest it for our next Read! The Washtenaw Reads screening team is meeting throughout the summer to select finalist titles for consideration.

  • The writing should be engaging and thought-provoking. 
  • The subjects discussed should be accessible to readers throughout the community, high-school age and above.
  • The length, price, and availability of the book should be suited to involvement by the general public.
  • The book should be by a living author.
  • Its treatment of issues should encourage readers to discuss the issues further with others, at home, work, reading clubs, and community events.
  • Ideally, the subject should lead to constructive dialogues across our diverse communities.
