And at the LibraryReads Librarian author lunch, Suketu Mehta talked about his own experiences and research for his new book, THIS LAND IS THEIR LAND: An Impassioned Argument About Immigrations and Its Discontents (Spring 2019): “Fear of migrants is doing incalculably more damage than the migrants themselves ever could. All evidence shows that immigrants enrich the countries that they move to.”

Last but not least, here’s what your librarian pals recommended at Library Journal‘s “Shout n’ Share” panel:

Librarians “Shout ‘n Share” Their Favorite BEA Picks!

Happy Monday, friends!  For those of you who couldn't make it to BEA (sniff), here's what your librarian pals found on the show floor to  shout ‘n share about:

King County Library System's Alene Moroni loved Kate Forsyth's historical novel BITTER GREENS.

New York Public Library/Bookops's Charlene Rue was captivated by Eula Biss' ON IMMUNITY: An Inoculation.

Douglas "Books for Dudes" Lord was really excited about Kim Zupan's gritty Western mystery THE PLOUGHMEN.

Library Journal's Henrietta Verma picked Ursula Archer's geocaching murder mystery FIVE, and said that it satisfied her love of both mysteries and maps.
She also recommended John Scalzi's latest sci-fi gem, LOCK IN

Baltimore County Public Library's Jamie Watson called out Susan Strecker's NIGHT BLINDNESS and said it's the perfect book for Nicholas Sparks fans. 

Alene and Jamie both applauded Kate Funk's BEST CAT BOOK EVER! Cat + Costume = What's not to love?

Monday Fun Day! (6/10/2013 Edition)

Happy Monday, librarians! 

- We hope you got the chance to properly celebrate National Doughnut Day last Friday. If not, it's not too late. Any day can be National Doughnut Day if you want it to be! Just get yourself some torus-shaped deep-fried dough and GO. TO. TOWN. Our recommended reading pairing: Jessica Beck's Donut Shop Mysteries.

- EarlyWord posted the full list of titles mentioned at the 4th Annual Librarian Shout 'n Share panel on their site with a nice description of the panel, so if you didn't get to BEA, those are the books your colleagues wanted to be sure you knew about. 

The titles mentioned that are published and distributed by Macmillan:

FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell
THE BONE SEASON by Samantha Shannon
FLAT WATER TUESDAY by Ron Irwin
LADIES' NIGHT by Mary Kay Andrews
HAVISHAM by Ronald Frame
THE TUDOR CONSPIRACY by C.W. Gortner
CINNAMON AND GUNPOWDER by Eli Brown
HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN by Louise Penny
GOOD AS GONE by Douglas Corleone
PERV by Jese Bering

indie next pick- As a follow up note: we just found out that FLAT WATER TUESDAY is a June Indie Next Pick alongside ON SAL MAL LANE by Ru Freeman (we will have finished copies of this one in booth #2103 in Chicago!).

- Shelf Awareness reviewed Steve Hamilton's latest Alex McKnight novel, LET IT BURN. They said,

"Hamilton's previous McKnight books were steeped in the lonely ethos of [Michigan's Upper Peninsula], but he may be even more successful in his rendering of today's broken Detroit as we follow the tenacious McKnight past boarded-up mansions, graffitied railroad bridges and trash-strewn yards. It doesn't make a pretty picture, but LET IT BURN may be Hamilton's best novel yet."

Nice! Now let's get this week started!
