JPL Book Club

October Staff Picks

Each month we 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 compile them 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. Find the selection from this month below, and if you want to see what our librarians have recommended in the past check out our blog!
