Beth works in the Collection Development department. She loves short stories, memoirs, documentary films, and cookbooks. Her favorite things about working at the library are the Salon@615 series and the easy access to her library holds.
Here are two novels, a short story collection, three nonfiction books, and four movies that I wish had gotten more attention in this overwhelming year. With a special focus on women authors and actors!
Emily Guendelsberger spent several months working at an Amazon fulfillment center in Kentucky, a Convergys call center in North Carolina, and a McDonald’s in San Francisco. Her account of this time is an enraging, eye-opening, essential book.
