Our Collections Department staff scour the new book releases and select books with buzz that we think you’ll want to know about. These buzz-worthy books make up our Featured Titles lists.
Our Late Spring 2017 Featured Titles list is here. The fiction selections highlight novels that dig deep into cultural history, untold family stories, wars (past and present), migration and self-discovery. Like us, you may fall in love with a reluctant criminal named Samuel Hawley and his lovely daughter Loo.
As for the non-fiction line up, it is a gorgeous selection of must have titles for the curious reader: new recipes, an investigation into the complexity of modern relationships and loneliness, immigration and assimilation, physics for the layperson, work and weekend culture, and the rags to riches story of Vij and his suitcases of spices.
