Each member of the committee nominates a title for consideration. We reviewed a combination of nonfiction and fiction, new releases and older titles. Many factors go into consideration, including themes, literary merit, format availability and timeliness. These five titles explore contemporary issues, both in the larger world and at home in Arlington. Read along with us, as one of these books will be our 2017 Arlington Reads Together pick!
