Library Staff Picks from 2016

Unseen City: The Majesty of Pigeons, the Discreet Charm of Snails & Other Wonders of the Urban Wilderness, by Nathanael Johnson

"It's basically an non-scientist, urban person's guide to the nature stuff we see everyday and don't think about (or think badly of). Like pigeons and weeds and ants. ​Laugh out loud funny in parts. It was written by a guy in San Francisco, with visits to Berkeley and West Oakland and more, so it's very local. Also featured on the 99% Invisible podcast if you don't feel like reading a whole book and just want a 25 minute audio highlights tour. " Recommended by Sarah Vital.

Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, by Matthew Desmond

"A Harvard sociologist examines the under-represented challenge of eviction as a formidable cause of poverty in America, revealing how millions of people are wrongly forced from their homes and reduced to cycles of extreme disadvantage that are reinforced by dysfunctional legal systems." -- Publisher Summary. 

"Heartbreaking and revelatory." Recommended by Gina Kessler Lee. 

Bettyville: A Memoir, by George Hodgman

"It is a story of a gay man who returns to his midwest town to take care of his mom in the final months of her life." Recommended by Sue Birkenseer and Margaret Brown-Salazar. 

The Gene: An Intimate History, by Siddhartha Mukherjee

"In this biography, Mukherjee brings to life the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices." Publisher Summary.

Recommended by Josh Rose. 

Two Naomis, by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich & Audrey Vernick

Fiction, for ages 8-12 (and beyond). "A realistic contemporary story of two girls, both named Naomi, whose divorced parents begin to date." Publisher summary.
