Archives - 20 Something Reads

Recently, I was lucky to attend an event along with Editorial Manager Rebecca Munro to celebrate a new show all about books --- “The Great American Read.” Premiering on PBS on May 22nd at 8pm ET, the show will focus on the 100 best-loved novels in America. The special preview was held at the beautiful Morgan Library where we listened to a panel of speakers that included multiple Emmy Award winner and news reporter Meredith Vieira, actress Diane Lane and author Armistead Maupin talk about the upcoming series and reveal the top 100 best-loved list.

We’re in the midst of celebrating National Library Week, which is the perfect time to get out and visit your community library! If you’re like me, you’re probably already borrowing books from friends and checking out your local bookstore to pick up your latest read, and that’s great. Sharing is caring, and supporting your local bookstore is about the best thing you can do in the book world. That said, your local library would also love to see you if you don’t already make regular visits. I’m sure many of you are library junkies, but if you aren’t, now is as good a time as any to become one. There’s usually a multitude of great programming to attend, including author talks, book groups and the like, that will be right up your alley, and you might be surprised at what else your library offers. With the weather really warming up across the country, you’ll need more books than ever for weekend park visits and beach/lake/pool dates with friends.
