2017 Community Reads
The 2017 book selection is Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters, a mystery-thriller that is a powerful look at what might have been if the Civil War had never happened, and illuminates the many ways life today is more like Winters’ alternative world than we may want to admit.
Ben Winters is the author of nine novels, including the award-winning The Last Policeman trilogy.

The Neighborhood Library Association (NLA) is a group of six area libraries in a collaborative partnership. Our goal is to bring members of our communities together to read and discuss the same book in an annual Community Reads. These six libraries also encourage community members to come together for events and programs related to that year’s book. The six libraries composing the NLA are: Lyon Township Public Library, Northville District Library, Novi Public Library, Salem-South Lyon District Library, Walled Lake City Library, and Wixom Public Library.
