The Latest Booklist: Spotlight on Sci-Tech

As the cover suggests, we’re topsy-turvy excited for our annual spotlight on sci-tech. Our top-10 lists for adult and youth books highlight the year’s best books in the fields of science and technology. Inspired by Charlie Gilmour’s star-reviewed Featherhood: A Memoir of Two Fathers and a Magpie, Donna Seaman looks to birds for read-alikes. And Julia Smith talks with talented picture-book illustrator Diana Sudyka about depicting science in beautiful nature-focused illustrations.

Also in this issue is our focus on business. Heather Booth offers up some sound advice on selecting business audiobooks. And finally, our latest Booklist Backlist, from steadfast Booklist reviewer Sara Martinez, celebrates coming-of-age fiction featuring immigrant children and/or the children of immigrants.
