Exciting New Non-fiction

Non-fiction is tough to get right. It needs to be factual, on a topic that can draw readers in, and be well written. It’s not for everyone, but for those of us who choose non-fiction over fiction, a really good book will stand out and deserve recommendations to everyone we know.

The CBC has put together a list of 16 non-fiction reads for spring of 2019 that you can’t miss…and it includes poetry, a book about school shootings, health topics, a graphic novel, and true crime.

The books I’ve added on this page are just a few of the suggested list. They include star of TV’s “Star Trek: Voyager” Kate Mulgrew’s look at her Catholic upbringing, love and loss, and family secrets in HOW TO FORGET: A DAUGHTER’S MEMOIR. A graphic novel called GRASS by Keum Suk Gendry-Kim about a sexual slave for the Japanese Imperial Army during the WWII. A book of essays about mental health called THE COLLECTED SCHIZOPHRENIAS by Esme Weijun Wang. And a funny look at dating in today’s world called HOW TO DATE MEN WHEN YOU HATE MEN by comedian and author Blythe Roberson.

Get your library cards ready…this is going to be a great start to 2019!
