The one book you chose to read together is
The Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment, along with our partners at New York Magazine, are excited to announce that Manhattan Beach has been chosen as this year's One Book, One New York winner!
Manhattan Beach is the fifth novel – and first work of historical fiction – written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan, a Brooklyn resident. Manhattan Beach tells the haunting World War II-era story of Anna Kerrigan, who becomes the Brooklyn Navy Yard's first female diver, and her search for her missing father.
"I'm ecstatic that Manhattan Beach has been chosen by One Book, One New York," said Egan. "The city of New York was my muse and my collaborator on this project, and it's thrilling to think of the book being widely read in the five boroughs that inspired it."
Scribner, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, has generously donated a 1500 copies of Manhattan Beach to all 219 library branches all over New York City. Click below for library locations and independent bookstores across NYC to pick up a copy of Manhattan Beach.
