Summer might be ending soon, but there’s still time to pick up some of Barack Obama’s seasonal reading picks!
Last month, former President Barack Obama continued his annual tradition of sharing his summer reading list on his Facebook Page, and many of his selections are published by Penguin Random House imprints.
Mr. Obama begins his post: “It’s August, so I wanted to let you know about a few books I’ve been reading this summer, in case you’re looking for some suggestions. To start, you can’t go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Sula, everything else — they’re transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them.”
Mr. Obama also recommended Colson Whitehead’s The Nickel Boys; Ted Chaing’s Exhalation; Haruki Murakami’s Men Without Women; Lauren Wilkinson’s American Spy; Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl; Téa Obreht’s Inland; and Dinaw Mengestu’s How to Read The Air.
