Our Summer 2017 books lineup has grown into three stories that we will unwrap over the next few weeks. While you wait, we are sharing a fabulous array of Summer 2016 books we published last year. These are books that beckon you to relax, learn, explore other places and other worlds. Check out our 2016 offerings – they include author interviews, reviews, excerpts and more!
Ten You’ll Like Stimulate your senses with works on touch, taste, weather, animal intelligence, amazing seashells, understanding our place in the galaxies, and a bold proposal — Half Earth — to save our planet (and us too) by setting aside half of Earth as a conservation zone!
Ten More You’ll Like Mysteries of health, heredity, immunity, materials that transform the world, how compulsive media use is reshaping human experience, and the astonishing intelligence of birds. Our authors include Sebastian Junger (Tribe), Siddhartha Mukherjee (Gene), Jennifer Ackerman (The Genius of Birds), and Sherry Turkle (Reclaiming Conversation).
Bonus Ten Books Architecture and design are featured including Witold Rybczynski’s Now I Sit Me Down, a biography of architect Marcel Breuer, the history of chairs, and a look at two architectural masters, Philip Johnson and Frank Lloyd Wright ( The Odd Couple)
