The Latest Booklist: Spotlight on Health & Wellness

The latest issue of Booklist, with a Spotlight on Health & Wellness, is live. We have new top-10 lists for adult nonfiction and books for youth, both focusing on medical science, self-improvement, and global health issues. Donna Seaman has a very timely core collection covering the history of vaccines. Donna also got a chance to talk with Chicago Public Library public relations representative Olivia Kuncio on the effort to provide reliable information about COVID-19 and public health to library patrons in the latest Notes from the Field.

Also in this issue, Booklist reviewer Reinhardt Suarez speaks with author Kelly Loy Gilbert about her latest novel, the star-reviewed When We Were Infinite, and how Gilbert’s Chinese heritage impacts her stories and characters. We also have our much-anticipated annual Spring Youth Preview, compiled by Taylor Crossley. Finally, Terry Hong curates a group of short story listen-alikes inspired by the latest starred review audiobook, The Secret Lives of Church Ladies.

You can also find the complete magazine online! Booklist’s digital edition of the February 15 issue is live. It’s a great way to explore the magazine from your iPhone, iPad, tablet, Samsung Galaxy, or any other internet-connected device.
