Lincoln City Libraries’ “One Book, One Lincoln”, a program intended to engage the community in book discussions, has narrowed down three book finalists for a public vote. Caitlin Lombardo, Program Coordinator and Librarian at Bennett Martin Library, says the program is designed to facilitate discussion in the community over books. She said over 250 books were nominated this year, and the program’s committee has narrowed the choices down to three. She expects different reactions to the book that’s chosen. 

“No matter your walk of life, we could all come to the same book and each have a different viewpoint of it,” Lombardo said. 

The three finalists are “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup” by John Carreyrou, “Dear Edward” by Ann Napolitano, and “The Dutch House” by Ann Patchett.

Lombardo says the public can vote on the three finalists through Friday at their website,
