Continue your British literary explorations with What Blest Genius, by Andrew McConnell Stott and Shakespeare’s Library by Stuart Kells, and journey even further back in time with Liza Picard’s Chaucer’s People. Learn about the natural world with William Bryant Logan’s Sprout Lands (concerning tree cultivation,) Kenn Kaufman’s A Season on the Wind (concerning Spring migrations,) and, from a different angle, Brian Fies’s graphic novel autobiography A Fire Story (concerning the 2017 California wildfires.) Tyler Kepner’s K examines baseball through the stories of ten key pitches, while in The Cost of These Dreams Wright Thompson collects a series of essays reflecting on the careers of retired or retiring sports stars. Finally, in biographies, comic strip artist Cathy Guisewite talks about her life in Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault, while comedian Dave Barry shares the antics of his elderly dog and what she taught him about aging, in Lessons From Lucy.
