Muriel Barbery's newest book, The Life of Elves, will be released in English on February 9th. After her enormous success with the beautifully written The Elegance of the Hedgehog, we're all eagerly awaiting her new novel as well as her visit to Book Culture for a reading and Q&A on February 10th! Check out her (spectacular) work below and be sure to catch her in February while she's still in the States!
Writers tend to be notorious loners while they're working on a project, but if they need an uncritical mind to bounce ideas off of, who better than a pet? Brighten your day and procrastinate a little with these adorable authors and their animals!
After yet another brutal New York winter, summer is finally here! No more gray freezing days--the city is in full bloom, the sun sets later every day, and we have more time than ever to laze around NYC's parks and benches to READ! We hope our staff and managers' personal summer reading lists will help inspire many months full of of playful, contemplative, and ever surprising literary adventures.
There is no singular “women’s history”; the extremely vast and varied experience of womanhood can not be catalogued by one author or even one genre. In keeping with this idea, our Women’s History Month reading list features poetry, science fiction, politics, history, classics, graphic novels, and more. Whatever kind of reader you are, we hope our Women’s History Month reading list will introduce you to a new author, new genre, or new way of looking at womanhood.
Summer has finally come to New York, and in this heat it's important to keep calm and cool and move as little as possible. In order words, it's the perfect time to read! Begin your summer right with an amazing list of books to dive into, provided by Book Culture on Broadway's amazing staff and managers. We hope this provides you with some inspiration, and that your summer is filled with playful, contemplative, and ever surprising literary adventures.
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.
Another month, another batch of exciting books sent out to our loyal subscribers through the Book Culture Selects program! What could be better than getting a book sent right to your door so you can skip the middle man and get right to curling up with something new to read as the weather cools down? I certainly can't think of anything.
