Nevada Humanities has announced the book selections for its statewide 2020 Nevada Reads program. Nevada Reads is a statewide book club that invites Nevadans to read selected works of literature and then come together in their communities to share ideas and perceptions inspired by the books they have read.
Nevada Reads offers avenues for discussion of topics of importance to the people of Nevada. Throughout 2020, Nevada Reads will feature two books—one nonfiction book, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder, and one novel, Severance by Ling Ma.
Programming around the selected books will take place throughout the state in 2020, including readings, book clubs, discussion groups, and community partnership initiatives. Program details with be announced throughout the year. Readers’ guides for the books and support for reading groups and independent book clubs are available at nevadahumanities.org.

The Library of Congress’ Center for the Book promotes books and libraries, literacy and reading, and poetry and literature.
