Last week, the Arlington Reads Together committee met and selected 5 books for their short list. These books will be read over the summer and early fall, and one will be selected as the 2017 community read.

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!
