Uncontrolled Spread by Scott Gottlieb, MD
Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic // As the pandemic unfolded, Gottlieb was in regular contact with all the key players in Congress, the Trump administration, and the drug and diagnostic industries.

On Animals by Susan Orlean

How to Walk with Steve by Robert Fromberg
This is a memoir of a boy's connection with his autistic brother in a family defined by alcoholism, art, and death in a decaying Midwestern city. With exposed-nerve scenes, Robert Fromberg immerses us in an early childhood made relentlessly unpredictable by autism and addiction; teenage years alone in 1970s New York City; and young adulthood as guardian of his brother after the death of their parent.
Raising Ollie by Nick Davis
How My Nonbinary Art-Nerd Kid Changed (Nearly) Everything I Know // Ollie, a funny, anxious, smart kid with a thing for choir and an eye for graphic art, was gravely under challenged and also struggling with identity and how to live totally as themselves. Ollie begged to switch to a new school with “kids like me,” where they wouldn’t feel so alone, or so bored, and so they made the change. Raising Ollie is dad Tom Rademacher’s story (really, many stories) of that eventful and sometimes painful school year, parenting Ollie and relearning every day what it means to be a father and teacher. As Ollie—who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns, and prefers art to athletics, vegetables to cake, and animals to most humans—flourishes in their new school, Rademacher is making an eye-opening adjustment to a new school of his own, one that’s whiter and more suburban than anywhere he has previously taught, with a history of racial tension that he tries to address and navigate.
The Speckled Beauty by Rick Bragg
A Dog and His People // Written with Rick Bragg's inimitable blend of tenderness and sorrow, humor and grit, this book captures the extraordinary sustaining devotion between two damaged creatures who need each other to heal.
Taste by Stanley Tucci
My Life Through Food // Stanley Tucci grew up in an Italian American family that spent every night around the kitchen table. Taste is a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about his growing up in Westchester, New York; preparing for and shooting the foodie films Big Night and Julie & Julia; falling in love over dinner; and teaming up with his wife to create meals for a multitude of children. Each morsel of this gastronomic journey through good times and bad, five-star meals and burned dishes, is as heartfelt and delicious as the last.
