2019 Canton Book Project Book Givers

On April 10 the Canton Public Library honored this year's Canton Book Project Book Givers. Each participant was selected by the library’s staff to receive five copies of a personally selected book and distribute it throughout the community to people who, for whatever reason, don’t own books or read for pleasure.

The full list of books to be shared through the Canton Book Project this year are as follows:

  • One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, chosen by Cecelia Escobar
  • Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, chosen by Kristin Felsburg
  • Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters by Andrea Beaty, chosen by Janice Ford
  • Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, chosen by Kari King
  • Bugged: The Insects Who Rule the World and the People Obsessed with Them by David Macneal, chosen by Hannah MacAfee
  • Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis, chosen by Kelley Moote
