Max Shelf: Bill O’Reilly

MaxShelf-BillOReilly“I love reading books with paper pages and browse old bookstores wherever I go. Libraries are sacred ground, and I thank all the librarians for keeping the literary tradition. We need you guys!”
— Bill O’Reilly

Today’s Maximum Shelf Awareness feature delves into Bill O’Reilly’s mega-bestselling history franchises: the Killing, Legends & Lies and the YA Last Days series, as well as his new current affairs book, OLD SCHOOL: Life in the Sane Lane.

Writing about history in a way that readers can enjoy was a goal of O’Reilly’s since he was a high school teacher in the early 1970s. Readers are drawn to the books, O’Reilly says, because “they inform and they’re entertaining.”

O’Reilly has also launched the Legends & Lies TV series (which premiered on Fox News in April 2015) to tie in to the books, which focus on a major figure from a historical period, debunking or confirming popular myths about their lives.

The Killing series has been adapted into the YA-friendly Last Days series, which aims to allow younger readers to enjoy illustrated versions of the historical narratives. The illustrations include a variety of maps, photographs and other images.

O’Reilly also has a non-series book coming out March 28, OLD SCHOOL: Life in the Sane Lane, written with Bruce Feirstein, about the cultural wars over values, his first current affairs book in many years.
