Community Reading Program Features Landline by Rainbow Rowell
One of the most popular features of “On the Same Page In Lackawanna County” are the book discussions that take place at libraries throughout the county. Once again this year, writer Stephanie Longo will moderate the discussions.
Landline, by Rainbow Rowell, is the 2016 selection for OTSP. The main character, Georgie McCool, finds herself with a magic telephone – magic because it lets her call up the past. And Georgie desperately wants to go back to the past and fix some things.
Library Journal gave Landline a starred review and said of Rowell, “reading her work feels like listening to your hilariously insightful best friend tell her best stories.”
Stephanie Longo is the author of Dunmore and Italians of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
