The Detroit Free Press reports that the Library of Michigan has released their annual list of Michigan Notable Books published during the previous year.

The Library of Michigan says they review 250 to 400 submissions each year. The finalists are chosen by a selection committee, made up of "booksellers, book reviewers, journalists, librarians, Michigan historians, archaeologists, writers, editors and anyone who is interested in books and in Michigan."
