Newton Reads 2017

Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova

Selection process

During September and October of 2016, the Newton Reads Book Selection Committee collected title suggestions from the Newton Free Library staff as well as the public. The committee carefully reviewed each title based on our selection criteria. We read and discussed the books to narrow down our list of contenders. This year the committee considered a total of 90 books before Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova was declared the winner! Check out the full list of titles considered in the document below!
