Summer Reading Book Recommendations: Week 4

This week we shift from fiction recommendations to narrative nonfiction. According to Pat McNees from the website Writers and Editors, narrative nonfiction is "fact-based storytelling that makes the reader want to keep reading." Our five suggestions certainly do exactly that!

Recent purchases for the library have added several narrative nonfiction titles to the collection. We're eager to share these new books with you, as well as all of the new titles waiting for you. See you in August!
