Con­nect­ing the 2,369 miles of U.S. Route 1 from Ft. Kent, Maine, to Key West, Flori­da, the Route 1 Reads ini­tia­tive is a part­ner­ship between 16 affil­i­ate Cen­ters for the Book to pro­mote books that illu­mi­nate impor­tant aspects of their states or com­mon­wealths for read­ers trav­el­ing this mean­der­ing high­way. The 2022 theme is Lit­er­ary Fic­tion. Geor­gia’s choice is Gold Dig­gers by San­je­na Sathian.
