Read, White, and Blue

Fresh off return flights from Annual Conference in Las Vegas (“fresh” in the most generous sense as many of our planes were delayed—and one was even rerouted through Milwaukee!), we returned to the Booklist offices last week realizing that Independence Day was upon us. What else could we do but take up scissors, secure construction paper, and celebrate our freedom to read? Herein follow our #redwhiteandbooks, volumes that take on a whole new, star-spangled look with the mere addition of a dapper Uncle Sam hat. You’ll find a list of titles, linked to their Booklist reviews, at the bottom.
