Recommended Reading: Reading Road Trip

A blue car driving down a road by the beach.

Whether you're traveling afar or staying nearby this summer, the library invites you to check out the July and August display on the Recommended Reading Book Shelf on the 3rd floor of Lauinger. The current display is a reading road trip to take your imagination across the country and invites you to step into perspectives and places that may differ from your own. The display features works from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as various travel memoirs and works about iconic highways and byways, all available to check out.

Take a reading journey this summer with novels such as Jessmyn West’s Sing, Unburied, Sing, J. Ryan Stradal’s Kitchens of the Great Midwest, Claire Vaye Watkins’s Battleborn, and Cristina Hernandez’s The Book of Unknown Americans. Then travel along through ideas and places that have shaped travel in the United States in works such as Timothy Davis’s Overground railroad: The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel in America, Ping Wang’s Life of Miracles Along the Yangtze and Mississippi, and Ian Frazier’s Great Plains
