This year’s titles, announced today [U.S.], will range from classics such as Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 to Tina Fey’s 2011 comic best seller, Bossypants.

The 30 books to be given away, chosen by a panel of booksellers and librarians, also include works by Mark Twain, John Grisham, Alexander McCall Smith and Nora Roberts. Two books will be available in English and Spanish: Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street and Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist.


It’s the second year that a coalition of U.S. publishers, booksellers and librarians are organizing the national effort, modeled on a British program that began in 2010. The goal is “to get good books in the hands of people who are underserved because of income or location or other reasons,” Carl Lennertz, its director, says.
