2020 Community Reads Recommendations

Although our Academic Marketing division created the “Books for the First-Year Experience” for colleges and universities, we strongly believe that the titles featured in this catalog foster the sort of discussion and self-reflection that make library-led, city-wide reading programs so memorable.

The updated catalog for 2020 is now available and features titles such as:

WE ARE THE WEATHER by Jonathan Safran Foer

HERE WE ARE: American Dreams, American Nightmares by Aarti Namdev Shahani

LOSING EARTH: A Recent History by Nathaniel Rich

UNFOLLOW: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church by Megan Phelps-Roper

If you are a librarian actively seeking suggestions for your One City, One Book program, we are delighted to send you complimentary copies of any of the advertised titles. Please e-mail with your request.
