NYPL #FridayReads: The Friendship Album Edition May 19, 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...

Amazingly brave books written by LGBTQ authors from places where it is still illegal to be gay and summer reading recs from indie booksellers. Take a walk down memory lane. The 1980s have been captured beautifully. Dennis Lehane may share a favorite book with you. Hint: it's "great." We partnered with Esopus to bring you a gorgeous friendship album. Have you noticed that TV adaptations of books are being done in a whole new way? Anne of Green Gables may be a little different than you remembered her in the new Netflix series. George Packer and Reiham Salam discuss civic engagement and political unrest. What does it mean to be an artist and young African immigrant today?
