Inspired by We Need Diverse Books, a campaign that promotes children's literature "that reflects and honor the lives of all young people," we here at Book Culture on Columbus decided to take a look at the books we had on our shelves. Like many publishers, libraries, and bookstores across the nation, we realized immediately that Book Culture could provide our teen readers with a larger spectrum of voices.
Book Culture on Columbus
Summer has arrived in New York City, and there's no better way to spend it than lazing in the sun with a good book. It's time to head to the park and soak up some literature along with those rays. To help you start off your summer reading right, our staff and managers at Book Culture on Columbus have offered up their personal summer reading lists. We hope this provides you with some inspiration, and that your summer is filled with playful, contemplative, and ever surprising literary adventures.
Book Culture is powered by books, a love of reading, and our booksellers. Get to know the Book Culture on Columbus Children's Book Manager, Anna!

Not only am I a little warmer, but suddenly the house is full of heavenly scents and at the end of it all I get a great meal! Winter also gives me time to try out new recipes and discover new favorites. For those looking to start their own culinary adventure this winter, here are some of my current cookbook obsessions.
