Newton Reads 2019

Selection process

During 2018, 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 45 books before Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine by Sarah Lohman, was declared the winner! Check out the full list of titles considered in the document below!
