Summer Sizzles for Adult Reading!

Adult Summer Reading for 2011 is all about traveling to Novel Destinations!

Several librarians from the Forsyth County Public Library system have come together to offer great picks for summer reads based on this year’s Novel Destinations theme. Enjoy this peek into great books set in faraway and some not-so-faraway places. Each title was chosen because of its excellent representation of place and the importance of the locale in driving the plot. We’ve also included websites and online databases that will give you additional information about the places covered.

We begin with Italy! Romance, intrigue, wine, art, history and a lot of sun. If you can’t be in Italy this summer, read your way there! Next up, New York City! Get a real feel for The Big Apple through these stories.

Open this printable document to get the best reading recommendations to take you on a literary trip.

Keep an eye out for more reading trips through July and this season of summer reading. Your Library is the best place to find out about the world around you.
