The Associated Press calls THE PATRIOT THREAT “one of Berry’s best books to date.” Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll see him on the road during his massive cross-country tour that includes several library stops and the Texas Library Association Conference!

UNFORGETTABLE by Scott Simon
@nprscottsimon: Mother called: “I can’t talk. I’m surrounded by handsome men.” Emergency surgery. If you can hold a thought for her now…

@nprscottsimon: I am getting a life’s lesson about grace from my mother in the ICU. We never stop learning from our mothers, do we?

“In this tender memoir developed from a series of Twitter messages, Simon, the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, finds the last week of his mother’s life to be a time for them to cherish each other and tenderly reminisce. He takes his quirky, devoted, gracious mother on her own terms, and his work shimmers as a touching tribute.” — Publishers Weekly

“Simon’s memoir is so captivating that everyone, not just fans of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, will enjoy learning about the wellspring that nourished the award-winning journalist’s wit, intelligence, heart, and chutzpah.” — Booklist, starred review

For a truly immersive experience, listen to the audiobook edition, narrated by Simon (clip available here).
