How to Read Harvard Bookstore Book Review
Harvard Bookstores has announced a new book review series, with the first one slated for July.
The series, titled “Harvard Books on the Go,” will give fans a look at books in the Harvard Book Library, including the classics, as well as some new books that have just launched.
“I’m excited to see the work that Harvard Bookshops is doing to create a more personalized and engaging experience for readers,” Harvard Book Reviews Editor and CEO Scott D’Angelo said in a press release.
“The goal of this series is to highlight new works that are in the process of being published, and also to highlight the books that were already in the library but haven’t yet been featured.”
The series will include both the classics and recent new releases, as the publisher notes that the latter group includes some classics that have already been released and some that have been shelved or are in development.
Here’s the official press release: The first book review will focus on books published between May 2016 and May 2017, which covers more than 500 titles.
This includes both the best-selling and the new titles.
In addition, we will highlight the latest offerings in the series and discuss the significance of the title.
These new titles are featured in the 2018 Summer edition of the Harvard Books on The Go book guide.
Harvard Book Stores will launch this series on July 1, 2018.
“Harrington Books on Book Culture,” as the book series is called, will be the first of several series to follow Harvard Books as the Harvard library continues to reinvent itself.
“We have an enormous collection of classics in our collections, and we’ve been working hard to create the best possible experience for our readers,” D’Angelos said.
“As the university celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, we’re pleased to continue to honor that legacy by celebrating books that people love.
We’re confident this series will give readers an opportunity to explore some of the best books from our collections and will also highlight the new books we’re working on.”
The new books will be showcased in the following books: A Brief History of Modern Art, by the artist Andy Warhol; A Brief Introduction to Theology, by John Steinbeck; A Field Guide to Modern American Culture, by Robert Hughes; A Short History of the American West, by Donald Barthelme; and The American Family, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
