- Michigan Notable Books The Michigan Notable Books program annually selects 20 of the most notable books published in the year. The selections are reflective of Michigan's diverse ethnic, historical, literary, and cultural experience. This program has roots stretching back to Michigan Week 1991. The Library of Michigan has had primary responsibility for this program since the 2002 awards. Before 2004, the program was called Read Michigan.
