Summer ends next month, but there’s still time to lounge in the sun with a good book. Check out these reads from Carnegie Library’s Books for the Beach list:
• “Blush”: When Sadie discovers her grandmother’s journals, she finds lessons to guide her family through struggles in relationships, business and identity.
• “The Twilight World”: In this fictionalized biography, filmmaker Werner Herzog develops a friendship with a former Japanese soldier who spent decades defending an island at the end of WWII.
• “The Wreckage of My Presence”: Embedded with wit and humor, this essay collection explores complicated experiences with family, friendships and motherhood.
