"The 21st Century Great American Novel"

2016 One Maryland One Book theme: "The 21st Century Great American Novel"

 

The call for titles is now closed and the One Maryland One Book Selection Committee is hard at work. Thank you for your suggestions!

For updates about the 2016 One Maryland One Book selection follow the Maryland Center for the Book Facebook page.


The theme for 2016 is "The 21st Century Great American Novel."

We're looking for a novel written by an American author that was originally published January 1, 2000 or later. The novel should weave a story that reflects American culture and community.

 

Additional 2016 One Maryland One Book criteria:

  • be able to generate sustained discussion on the year's theme
  • be of interest to people in the state of Maryland
  • appeal to a wide range of readers of different backgrounds and reading levels
  • connect to high school age readers as well as adults
  • be of manageable length (up to 350 pages)
  • be available in paperback and priced affordably
  • be in print, audio and electronic format and, if possible, large print, Braille, film, and translation
  • a living author is a consideration, but not a criterion
  • a Maryland author is a consideration, but not a criterion
