[ARCHIVED] Libraries Transform Book Pick

We're joining public libraries nationwide in a new digital reading program, the Libraries Transform Book Pick, which offers access to the same ebook for a two-week period. The first eBook selection is the newly released title After the Flood by Kassandra Montag, published by William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. After the Flood will be available Oct. 7—21, 2019 through your library's OverDrive website. Readers will only need a library card and the Libby app to download a free copy of the ebook to their device. There will be no waitlists or holds for the title.

After the Flood is an inventive and riveting climate fiction saga from a promising new author. In a starred review, Booklist states, “Montag’s thrilling debut takes place in a future climate-change-altered world overrun by water… Anchored by a complicated, compelling heroine, this gripping, speculative, high-seas adventure is impossible to put down.” And Karin Slaughter, international bestselling author of “The Last Widow,” calls Montag “a visionary new talent!”

The Libraries Transform Book Pick is a collaboration between the American Library Association (ALA) and Rakuten OverDrive. The program gives public libraries and their staff the opportunity to bring readers in their community together to discover a new ebook and celebrate the very best in reading. The selection of After the Flood for the Libraries Transform Book Pick was made in consultation with experts at Booklist, the book review magazine of the ALA.
