NYPL #FridayReads: The Worth It Edition April 21, 2017


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.

We Read...

Long books that are worth it and ranked our favorite fictional librarians. The founders of Black Girls Create! came to hang with us on The Librarian Is In, and we talked about Harry Potter. This story was smuggled out of North Korea to the United States. Take our quiz to see if you know who wrote these famous lines of poetry. Feminist writers are making waves. We got all the feels from reading Cornel West discuss why James Baldwin is more important than ever. If you liked The Handmaid's Tale, you may like these books too. Bernstein finalist Gary Younge talks about gun violence.
