Last month we found out that the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment was launching a reading initiative to get New Yorkers reading the same book at the same time. It would be the largest such initiative attempted in the US. New Yorkers would get the chance to vote on 1 of 5 books and now the winner has been announced! The winner is
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie!
The NYPL and the Mayor's Office will be launching a series of events to promote the book and the program as well as a reading guide for people looking to pick up the book!
What you you think of the pick? Will you be reading along with New York?
