The Latest Booklist: Spotlight on Series Nonfiction

The current issue of Booklist spotlights series nonfiction and features the Top 10 Series Nonfiction of the year and our annual Series Nonfiction Watch, which highlights a fun and informative look at board books. Inspired by the extraordinary life of Belle da Costa Greene and the new novel The Personal Librarian, by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray, Adult Books Editor Donna Seaman offers fiction and nonfiction read-alikes that celebrate librarians that have bucked oppressive systems. Susan Maguire, our genre fiction expert, categorizes beach reads for your TBR lists. While you are planning summer activities, Heather Booth has compiled a road-tested list of audiobooks fit for any long journey. Finally, Donna Seaman offers an exciting list of Black historical fiction in the latest Backlist.
