Nonfiction Friday is a link-up where you can find all of the awesome nonfiction happenings of the week. Be sure to link-up your nonfiction posts too!
- These 3 stunning new books that explore the forgotten past all sounds interesting to me.
- More well deserved recognition of Roxane Gay, who has been awarded a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship.
- I enjoyed both of these articles summarizing a study of what makes a best seller. Of note to nonfiction lovers, memoirs are one of the most popular genres and male authors dominate the nonfiction best-seller list. That surprised me taken together, because I’m aware of far more memoirs by women published recently.
- Why is there always nonfiction news for children? I don’t know, but I thought this list of five different types of STEM nonfiction for kids, with examples of each, looked really helpful.
- New releases to look forward to in the coming week include:
- The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After
- Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor
- The Pope Who Would Be King: The Exile of Pius IX and the Emergence of Modern Europe
- Great American Outpost: Dreamers, Mavericks, and the Making of an Oil Frontier
- The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century
