Recommend a book for ‘One Book One Nebraska’

Written by Jon Ritterbush, Electronic Resources Librarian

The Nebraska Center for the Book (NCB) is now inviting recommendations for the 2011 One Book One Nebraska book selection.  The NCB will consider books which meet the following criteria:

  • Books written by a Nebraska author (living or dead/with current or former residence in the state), or that have a Nebraska theme or setting.
  • Books should have a broad appeal to readers across Nebraska and lend well to group book discussion.
  • Books may be fiction, non-fiction, biography, memoir, or poetry.
  • Books must be in print and readily available.

The 2010 One Book One Nebraska selection is The Home Place by Wright Morris.

Book recommendations should be sent via e-mail to by July 26, 2010. Recommendations may also be sent via the U.S. Postal Service to:

The Nebraska Center for the Book
One Book One Nebraska, c/o Nebraska Library Commission Reference Services
1200 N Street, Suite 120
Lincoln, NE 68508-2023

The NCB will announce the 2011 One Book One Nebraska choice at the Nebraska Center for the Book Celebration on November 6, 2010.
