Did you miss BookTalk for Adults this past Friday? No worries, this is what we talked about… Under the Radar Titles. With the help of Seattle librarian, Nancy Pearl, I was able to put together a list of 5 literary books which may have fallen “under the radar ” for many readers. According to Nancy, ” I just think it’s so important that readers learn about books that haven’t been heavily promoted – what we would call mid-list books.” I absolutely agree with Nancy, and am happy to share and promote the following titles:
The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo
Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken
Our Homesick Songs by Emma Hooper
The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna
Claire Dewitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran
Come join us on December 6th for our next BookTalk. We will be talking about books that make us feel happy, light reading reading for the holidays. Hope to see you in the green room!
