UNION, NJ – Not everyone comes into the library knowing exactly what they want. Some like to try something new and others just look for something “good”. Reference librarians are there for that reason – to help you find something that will amuse, challenge or inform you. Just ask!
If you like to come prepared, here’s some recommendations from trusted sources.
● TIME Magazine: How to Be an Antiracist
Ibram X. Kendi “shares both his personal story and expertise on the ways in which we can build a world that rejects inequality.”
● Independent Book Seller Survey: Ask Again, Yes
Mary Beth Keane presents “a family-story-spanning-decades book … into this beautifully crafted tale of regular people who become our neighbors on the pages of the book.”
● Publishers Weekly: Country Music: An Illustrated History CD
Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns’ “voluminous and hugely entertaining introduction to country music coinciding with the release of the eponymous PBS series.”
● Kirkus Review: The Escape Room
Megan Goldin’s “novel is pure entertainment. This is a commentary on the cutthroat, hypocritical world of finance, where one must sacrifice everything to stay on top.”
● USA TODAY: The Lager Queen of Minnesota
J. Ryan Stradal’s second novel “weaves together a bittersweet but heartwarming generational story of family, tragedy, perseverance and forgiveness.” It will “make you smile with its droll humor, and its poignant moments will stop you to reread and confirm that they really are that good.”
