Looking for a good read? How about a suggestion from our staff? Read on…

So far in 2020 our Director, Dianne Hathaway, completed 58 books (there’s still time for a few more before the ball drops on December 31!). This year a few of them were randomly selected books when she wasn’t sure what to read, resulting in some great book this year, with Dianne’s 2020 favorite being a random pick, The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune.

Dianne’s Favorites of 2020:

  • The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
  • I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown
  • A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
  • We Love Anderson Cooper by R. L. Maizes
  • Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
