NORMAL, Ill. (AP) - Illinois’ statewide reading program has announced its 2015 book selections.

The Illinois Reading Council on Wednesday named books for everyone from adults to newborn babies. The program is intended to promote reading for people of all ages.

The selections include several by authors with ties to Illinois.

Among the selections for adults is “Monsters: The 1985 Chicago Bears and the Wild Heart of Football” by Rich Cohen and “Identical” by Chicago author Scott Turow.

Younger readers are encouraged to try titles such as “Pugs in a Bug” by Evanston author Carolyn Crimi and John Green’s “Looking for Alaska.”

Annotated lists of selections for 2015 - as well as the previous two years - are available on the Illinois Reading Council website.
