The Lewistown Public Library offers a variety of services, programs and naturally – books. The books come in many shapes, formats and genres for all reading levels.
New books arrive at the Library on a monthly basis. They come our way through careful title selection, reviews and recommendation. This process is intentional and careful to develop each collection to serve our patrons best.
The Library’s non-fiction collection is home to the books that contain real events and facts. This collection is a great place to come to find answers, learn new skills, advocate health, find recipes or research history. Each month the non-fiction collection adds new titles.
Here are just a few new non-fiction titles for September:
“Grain By Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food” by Bob Quinn and Liz Carlisle.
“A compelling personal story that takes the wind out of the war on wheat and charts a course for getting rural America off the agrochemical treadmill.” -David R. Montgomery, author of “Growing a Revolution”.
“All the Lives We Never Lived: Seeking Solace in Virginia Woolf” by Katharine Smyth.
“In her brilliant debut, Katharine Smyth has done the impossible – invented a new form of memoir. Her prose is luxuriant and supple, but never sentimental, and her piercing insights into the dynamics of the nuclear family often profound.” -Michael Scammell, author of “Koestler” and “Solzhenitsyn”.
“Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World” by Cal Newport
“Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture.” -Joshua Fields Millburn, The Minimalists.
“Barnum: An American Life” by Robert Wilson.
“In this impressive biography, Robert Wilson gives readers the real Phineas Taylor Barnum, sweetening this already entertaining book with brilliantly presented fact that far surpass anything previously imagined about this colorful, controversial subject”. -Jeff Guinn, author of “Losing My Cool”.
“So You Want to Start a Podcast: Finding Your Voice, Telling Your Story, and Building a Community That Will Listen” by Kristen Meinzer.
“Kristin Meinzer’s book is a smart, funny, thoughtful, step-by-step guide not just for getting you into podcasting, but also for being a good person while you do it. You’ll feel validated – and ready to tackle the world!” -Mia Lobel, Executive Producer, Revisionist History.
