Nonfiction Friday is a link-up where you can find all of the awesome nonfiction happenings of the week.
- In response to the current crises, a new Quarantine Book Club has been formed that allows readers to join video conversations with authors for only $5 or for free if you can’t afford that. It looks like they have some interesting nonfiction authors on their schedule!
- This was an interesting article that described how prior knowledge can help with reading comprehension even more than reading skills.
- This other book about kids reading nonfiction isn’t big news, but it is super cute and I think we can all use some of that right now.
- Nonfiction new releases to look forward to include:
- It’s Not About the Burqa
- Death in Mud Lick: A True Story of Corporate Pill Pushers in Small Town America
- The Sum of the People: How the Census Has Shaped Nations, from the Ancient World to the Modern Age
- Heida: A Shepherd at the Edge of the World
- The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.
