December Shapiro Lobby Book Display

Best Books of 2018

For the past year and a half, Ask a Librarian Assistant Casey Gamble has been creating wonderful book displays for the Shapiro Lobby.  Changing each month, they have highlighted a variety of different themes. Last month, it finally dawned on me that I should share the "collections" on these displays more broadly, so I have started creating Lost in the Stacks blog posts based on Casey's displays and the descriptions she has created for them.

For December the display is featuring some of 2018's most popular books -- just in time for reading over the winter break. 

A selection of titles from the display include fiction :

You Think It, I'll Say It cover      You Think It, I'll Say It : Stories  by Curtis Sittenfeld


       The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah


       Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao


       Unsheltered: a Novel by Barbara Kingsolver  Unsheltered cover



The display also includes a variety of recent non-fiction titles:

                                                                    The Line Becomes a River by Francisco Cantú

                                                                          Whiskey in a Teacup cover

            Whiskey in a teacup: what growing up in the South 
                   taught me about life, love, and baking biscuits by
                   Reese Witherspoon

           Fire and fury : inside the Trump White House by
