The One City One Book: San Francisco Reads 2013 Selection Committee says Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is the perfect pick this year because:
Doctorow is an author not afraid to fight the good fight, and in this highly readable, technologically savvy novel for all reading levels, he gives us the tools necessary so that we can do the same. Little Brother is daring, exciting, and just bold enough to show us how to keep our freedoms safe.
The book is immensely refreshing.
Reading it will be a great cross cultural experience for youth and adults.
This is a provocative book, a timely book, and the San Francisco setting is just so satisfying.
“Doctorow is the ultimate crossover author, whose sharp writing and commitment to investigating the hot-button political and technological issues of today (and tomorrow) engage YA and adult readers alike.” — Library Journal
Let's join the San Francisco community in reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow during the month of September. This selection is in addition to our regular September meeting.
