It can be tough to keep your children informed in a way that makes sense for their age. These books can help. http://on.nypl.org/1IGLZRG
These books can help children discuss and better process difficult world events such as war, immigration, discrimination, and environmental conservation.

"I first got involved in the theater for purely political reasons. In other words, I had no interest in the theater when I started out." - David Hare http://on.nypl.org/1JzvdUK

Finally, fabulous finds for foodies: http://on.nypl.org/1NUQvus
With the holidays at our doorstep, there’s one thing that’s sure to be on everyone’s mind: food! So naturally, this December we here at Mid-Manhattan decided to dedicate our monthly Open Book Night to a discussion of favorite food or cooking related books.

Adam Silvera, author of YA book More Happy Than Not, gave an inspirational talk and Q&A in the Bronx. http://on.nypl.org/1R1TUMb
A few teens asked about his writing as well as his literary influences. From his writing process to his tattoos, the questions varied greatly, and they allowed for the teens to get to know Adam better.

Dalkey has continually expanded the much needed world of quality translations for works that yearn for the proper attention. http://on.nypl.org/1Onqx4s
In continuation of the Three (or more) Series: Dalkey Archive's specialty lies within curating and bringing forth names in literature that are often left out of the conversation. Many of these titles fall under avant garde, while others are titles that have been forgotten about, or never translated for the English speaking world.
