The Michigan Department of Education and the Library of Michigan are pleased to announce the 2014 Michigan Notable Books, 20 books celebrating Michigan people, places, and events. For more than 10 years the Library has been proud to sponsor this program, doing our part to help build a culture of reading here in Michigan.
" The Michigan Notable Books Program helps to show what is 'great' about the Great Lakes State," said State Librarian Nancy Robertson. " It is amazing to see the quality of books that are written focusing on Michigan year after year," added Robertson. " Each year the program helps to tell Michigan's complete story through the voices of talented historians, creative writers, illustrators, essayists and poets."
" Michigan is rich in talented writers, history, and resources," said State Superintendent Mike Flanagan. " Our Notable Books for 2014 express the wonderful variety of character, tone, and flavors that are purely Michigan. This year's Notable Books appeal to people of all ages and will continue to build a Culture of Reading here in Michigan," Flanagan said.
