Candidate’s Favorite Books: Linda Robinson

This election season, we're asking candidates the hard-hitting question "What is your favorite book?" We asked all candidates appearing on the ballot for state and local office. As the election nears, we'll post their answers here.

Linda Robinson, Democrat from Lawrence, is running for a seat representing the 45th District in the Kansas House of Representatives. Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

"Having been an English major in college, I have a real love for British literature and wit. I enjoy the language and dialogue, as well as the writing style of the book. The fact that it is historical fiction makes it interesting and educational, as well as enjoyable to read. It’s a fascinating look into the lives and manners of Regency England."

Inclusion on this blog does does not constitute an endorsement of a candidate by the library. However, we do endorse the books they've chosen.
