National Book Award 2015 Nominees: Non-Fiction

I don’t think anyone was too surprised to see Ta-Nehisi Coates’s massive breakaway hit Between the World and Me appear on this year’s longlist of nonfiction National Book Award nominees.  There were some pleasant surprises, however.  Sy Montgomery, long known for her children’s nonfiction titles, did well with her recent The Soul of an Octopus (which is NOT for kids).  Meanwhile Sally Mann’s memoir Hold Still made an appearance as well.  Have  you read all the nominees?  Click on the titles below to reserve your copies from the EPL system:
