About the “One Book, One New York” Selection Process:
To select the book finalists, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment convened an advisory council made of representatives from each of New York City’s three public library systems, as well as leaders from the City’s universities and book publishing community. Their book recommendations were compiled into a list from which the five finalists were chosen. The publishers of the five nominated books have provided copies of those books to each of NYC’s more than 200 library branches and they will also be available for sale at bookstores throughout the City.
