As the temperature outside rises, there seems to be a correlating drop in the ability to concentrate. Sitting in an air-conditioned movie theater is a surefire way to cool down, but grabbing a fun, trashy, plot-driven book and heading to the pool is another great way to beat the heat. We’ve assembled an assortment of summer reads for our most recent display, and we’re highlighting some new urban and street lit.
Street and Urban Literatures provide gritty, but fast-paced stories that are part romance and part thriller. Perfect for a summer read!
