2013 Michigan Notable Books Announced!

Michigan Notable Book SealThe much anticipated 2013 Michigan Notable Books list has been announced and the titles are fantastic!

The Library of Michigan annually decides on 20 of the most notable books that “are reflective of Michigan’s diverse ethnic, historical, literary, and cultural experience” as well as featuring “high-quality titles with wide public appeal.” (via)

This year’s select list features fiction, nonfiction, picture and children’s books alike and were penned by a Michigan resident or written about a subject related to the Great Lakes region.

Michigan now holds some of the country’s hottest authors in its mittened hand. After authors are notified of their awards, they make themselves available to Michigan readers through library tours, appearances and literary engagements.

“In the spring, selected authors will visit 50 libraries across the state from the Upper Peninsula to Detroit,” states the Free Press. A keynote event known as the Night for Notables takes place in late April and honors all the selections.

*Support your local bookstores, libraries and universities. It matters.
