Reading List For the Winter
Former Publishers Weekly Forecast Editor, Sybil Steinberg was back at the Westport Library recently to recommend books for the coming months. Sybil’s list for the library patrons is shorter than usual this time due to the Coronavirus, but still packs a punch! Many of the big publishers had shut down their warehouses over the summer and were unable to send out hard copies of their upcoming books for several months, so this time, Sybil had more opportunity to read some smaller press works. Below are her recommendations, and if you would like to see the Westport Library’s video of Sybil presenting these titles with description, please watch here.
(Sybil presents her book picks several times a year at the Westport Library and some of her previous recommendations are HERE.)
Sybil’s List 2020/2021
