Fellow Westporter, Sybil Steinberg, contributing editor and former book review section editor for Publishers Weekly, treats Westport Library patrons to a wonderful book event a few times a year. She recommends a long list of new books, fiction and nonfiction, and gives us a short summary of each and reasons why she loves each one. Here is her current list!

I am looking forward to two of Sybil’s nonfiction recommendations, The Library Book by Susan Orlean, about the LA library fire in 1986, and Small Fry, a memoir written by Steve Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs.
If you are a year behind in your reading, see Sybil’s recommendations from October 2017 HERE.

Every Tuesday new books are released and my reading pile is continually growing (See all photos in this post!). I follow lots of book websites and Facebook pages along with many published lists to decide what I want to read and review.
Sybil Steinberg, former book reviewer and contributing editor at Publisher’s Weekly presents her picks twice a year at the Westport Library in Westport, CT, one of the most highly ranked libraries in the nation.
I love a good booklist to peek my interest and inspire me to read more. Westport, Connecticut resident Sybil Steinberg, contributing editor and former book review section editor for Publishers Weekly puts together a list of her favorites several times a year and recently she presented her July 2017 picks to a standing room only crowd at the Westport Library. I had a chance to catch up with Sybil and ask her a few questions.
