What to read this summer? Nancy Pearl tells us!

nancy pearlIt’s Pledge Week this week for Chicago-land WBEZ listeners, and I know some folks may cut back on listening a bit. If you are one of those who go on a public radio diet, you may have missed the segment last Monday with Nancy Pearl alerting listeners to great, under-the-radar choices for summer reading.  As usual, Nancy Pearl makes all six selections sound wonderful and the only frustration is where to start. All genres are represented: fiction, nonfiction, mystery, fantasy, travel, and short stories. Listen here to the interview. I’ve listed the titles below with links to the EPL catalog.

Understories by Tim Horvath

Astoria by Peter Stark

The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet by Reif Larson

Into Thick Air by Jim Malusa

Death of a Unicorn by Peter Dickinson

The Glass Sentence by S. E. Grove

Happy reading!
