What a great season to be shopping for books to give as gifts! Literati Bookstore is chock-full of 2022 releases — most are brand-new releases for the season — that are exciting, fascinating, thought-provoking, delicious, funny, inspiring, beautiful . . . good luck not feeling compelled to get some of these for yourself! The list is entirely non-fiction, featuring memoirs, biographies, cookbooks, as well as books about the natural world, the music and film industries, and books about fascinating people who have changed the world.
Autumn is an exciting season for readers: publishers release a higher volume of new books in the fall than throughout the rest of the year. It tends to be the season when much-awaited for new books by favorite authors hit the bookshelves, as well as debuts from authors the industry just knows readers are going to love. Literati inventory staff are busier than ever, opening lots and lots and lots of boxes, filling our display tables and shelves with these new book releases. Here are suggestions of some of the It titles I know are not to be missed. —Curator Vick

Though summer's end is closing in on us, it's still the dog days of summer: hot August days that send us to the beach or pool before the leaves start turning. Here's a list of books I hope will amuse you, captivate you, educate you, and find yourselves lost in . . . books that are good company while soaking up the end of summer sun. — curator vick
The entire month of June is Pride Month, which commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots, which eventually led to the efforts and progress towards achieving equal rights, justice, and opportunies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) Americans. Big Thanks to Literati staff member/bookseller David Vogel for putting together most of this reading list that touches on and celebrates LGBTQ culture.
June is Pride Month! Watch Literati bookseller David Vogel talk about favorite books from our Pride displays, and why Pride month is important.
