Barbara Hoffert Recommends

 

Library Journal's Barbara Hoffert selected four compelling new titles for librarians to be on the look out for in September. Three out of the four are published or distributed by Macmillan so we had to share the good news!

SOMEONE by Alice McDermott

"Few authors are as good as McDermott at making the ordinary extraordinary."

OIL AND HONEY: The Education of an Unlikely Activist by Bill McKibben

"A key topic, and the high-profile McKibben—a busy speaker and much-followed tweeter whose environmental organization, 350.org, has a powerful web presence—will attract readers."

MEN WE REAPED: A Memoir by Jesmyn Ward

Excellent picks, Barbara! See her full list of September selections here. [...]
