March Staff Picks

Each month we have started to feature a series of books chosen by our fabulous staff. Once a week our literary mavens will be featured on our social media channels. At the end of every month we will combine them into one spot for you right here; that way you won’t miss a single book! These choices are some of their favorite books and authors, or reads they need to share with others.

Julie from the Beaches Branch can't talk up Donna Tartt enough for our JPL Picks! “Tartt is epic. She only writes a book a decade and I highly recommend her work!”


Joanna from South Mandarin recommends Juana & Lucas by Juana Medina for our #JPLPicks this week! Juana & Lucas is Pura Belpré winner too, an award given to outstanding Latina and Latino writers and illustrators!

"Neil Gaiman has a way of writing that pulls you in" says Leslie from South Mandarin for her Staff Pick. Gaiman's work "makes you feel you are not reading but walking along beside the characters and listening to the conversations."
