NYPL #FridayReads: The Amazing Women Binders Edition March 17, 2016
During the week, it can be tough to stay on top of everything. On Fridays, though, we suggest kicking back to catch up on all the delightful literary reading the internet has to offer. Don’t have the time to hunt for good reads? Never fear. We've rounded up the best bookish reading of the week for you.
Books exploring the refugee experience, all about the ponderings of Rebecca Solnit, and children's books featuring families of color. What if these classic books had been written after the invention of telephones? On The Librarian Is In, we discuss how libraries help immigrants and underserved communities. If you haven't read any Toni Morrison, we have a guide to getting started. Librarians in Seattle are fighting fake news. Ever thought about what would happen if #BlackLivesMatter and Frankenstein met? Victor LaValle has. Brush up on the Beats. Or, if nonfiction is more your style, check out these awesome activist memoirs. We heart feminist YA. What's so special about Pi anyway? Do apply for the Fordham-NYPL Research Fellowships in Jewish Studies by April 30. Don't miss the history of the amazing women who made cloth book bindings!
