2021 gives us reason for hope and rejuvenation. Literati staff have come up with books we recommend for readers to take with them into the new year: books we feel can be held dear as we head in to the long winter of snow and ice storms, covid fears and reality, and as a new administration gets to work on making the world around us a better place. These are thoughtful books, funny books, inspiring books, calming read-by-the-fireside books. Some are oldies but goodies, some are brand new, and some will be released in the next few months.
