Every year a selection committee facilitated by the Library of Michigan comes together and pores over 100s of books that were published the previous year. Fiction, non-fiction, as well as children's and teen titles are all eligible for consideration as long as they meet the criteria: books must be written by a Michigan author, or feature Michigan or the Great Lakes as the setting.
This year's notable book list has a great sampling of it all! Check out the links below to find out more or to place a request for one of these great books at your preferred branch. Check out Michigan Notable Book lists from years past here!
