SUMMER READING RECOMMENDATIONS
by Zora Neale Hurston

Submitted by Kelly F.
This collection of short stories flicker with the author’s genius in characterization, dialect, and wit. Hurston’s writing is alive with vivid stories and unforgettable people like young John Redding. Read these “lost” stories of early 20th century Harlem and Florida and see why Zora Neale Hurston is considered a great American writer.

The forward by Tayari Jones is a bonus.
by Sarah M. Broom

Submitted by Kelly K.
Winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 2019, this book is a memoir of place – and a family saga that endures in it. Sarah (or Monique as her family calls her) is bound to New Orleans East, to her past, and what was “supposed” to happen for her house and family but ultimately falls apart due to neglect, Hurricane Katrina and inequality. Readers will reflect on dreams we once had, our love for our families, hometowns, and most of all hope – all beautifully rendered in nostalgia.

This book is truly for The Office super fan. I've only seen the American Office (please don't judge me) but this book gives you a perspective of Ricky Gervais' involvement in the earliest days of both the British and American versions and compares and contrasts them to some degree. You learn about some of the gossip on why Steve Carrell really left the show and how the cast interacted on set.
YOUNG ADULT FICTION
by Katharine McGee

Submitted by Kathryn S.
What if there was a royal family in the US like there is in Britain? If there was, what would their lives be like? American Royals follows the lives of three members of the royal family and their friends. The eldest child of the royal family, is expected to find a suitable husband very soon. 
I enjoyed this book because each chapter is from a different person’s perspective. Recommended to those who liked The Selection by Kiera Cass.

A hilarious story that teaches tolerance and that it's okay to make a mistake. Also, if you love some silly jokes, this ones for you!

At the same time Ryan is struggling to find a talent, her best friend has moved and has new friends, and her brother is non-stop annoying. Will this just be too many punches in a row?

Great for all ages, really.

This graphic novel features a large cast, offering 16 tales of kids in town transforming cardboard boxes into whole new worlds. They meet and build friendships with other kids in town through imaginary play. While the book is whimsical and fun, it also tackles some serious topics with great compassion.
