Picture Books for Grown-ups

"This looks interesting...."

by Elizabeth Krebs, Public Services Librarian 

Finding something good to read can be a challenge. There are many ways to hear about a book: TV, magazine, friend, reviews and best-seller lists, and the librarians at your favorite public library. As I look through the new books, to ascertain where in the library they can best be placed, some of them are so fascinating, it is all I can do to not stop working and start reading them. But … everyday new books arrive so I must keep doing.

“This looks interesting ….” is my attempt to share with you things that are not in the mainstream and may be a bit obscure or offbeat, but look interesting and are worth checking out by someone other than me. I hope something catches your eye.

Let me know, Elizabeth K.

Only 2 days remain in our month-long LOVE YOUR LIBRARY fundraiser.  There is still make to make your gift.  All gifts made during the month of September will be matched by a very generous grant from the Jack Buncher Foundation.

The Library of Congress National Book Festival is an annual literary event that brings together best-selling authors and thousands of book fans for author talks, panel discussions, book signings and other activities. The 20th Library of Congress National Book Festival will celebrate “American Ingenuity” in 2020, featuring the creativity and inspiration of some of the nation’s most gifted authors in a reimagined virtual festival the weekend of Sept. 25-27. Although this event has passed you can register to view the recorded author talks. This is a great opportunity to hear amazing authors speak about their work.
