For the fourth consecutive year, Connecticut Center for the Book will participate in the Route One Reads initiative, a program under the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. In 2018, the theme of the initiative will be romance, and the selected book representing Connecticut is The Thunder Beneath Us by Nicole Blades.
The diverse reading list created by Route One Reads highlights each individual State Center for the Book while celebrating the East Coast as a whole. By participating in Route One Reads, readers can travel across 15 states and the District of Columbia without taking a single footstep, or load selected books into the car for a literary road trip. The full list of featured books for the 2017 Route One Reads initiative is available along with a map of participating states at Route1Reads.org.
