Do you need good ideas for good reads this summer? The NMSU Library has provided a list of cool picks for hot summer reading.
Visit the Library’s 2011 Summer Reading List for fiction and non-fiction recommended by the Library staff at http://nmsu.libguides.com/summerreading. The list, compiled by Collection Development Coordinator Susan Beck, also includes links to national book reviews, best-seller lists and book awards.
The Library also announces that the last podcast in its series of audio book reviews for Spring Semester has appeared at http://lib.nmsu.edu/ecasts/. Susan Beck is reviewing A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore. The book is a piercing novel of race, class, love and war in America. It tells of the coming of age of Tassie Keltjin, a Midwestern girl who enters college just months after 9/11. Her world is forever changed when she becomes entangled with a mysterious family and a Brazilian lover. The podcast series, organized by Humanities Librarian Mardi Mahaffy, includes reviews by library staff and other members of the NMSU community.
