Today’s staff pick comes from April: “To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is my absolute favorite book. The book has great character development, a relevant plotline, and a unique look at small town life in the 1940s. Although Lee wrote the novel in 1960, it still sells over a million copies each year, and is a staple in high school classrooms. It is a beloved classic for many people worldwide, and has been published in 40 different languages. It even earned Ms. Lee a Pulitzer Prize in 1961.” #winterread2018 #SuffolkReads #staffpicks #bookreview
Looking for another book to squeeze in to the last few days of our reading challenge? Here’s what library staff member Sean has to say about his favorite book, One-Punch Man by One: "One-Punch Man's protagonist may defeat all his enemies with one punch, but I can give you a hundred reasons why you should start reading this series. The art is amazing, the humor spot-on, and this is all while presenting a thought-provoking deconstruction of what it means to be a hero." #winterread2018 #SuffolkReads #staffpicks #bookreview
