Non-fiction books are about facts or true events. This guide focuses on non-fiction subjects and books that are often chosen based on personal interests, rather than for research. At WPL our most popular non-fiction genres are biography & memoir, cookbooks, self help, and true crime. We've also included here a section called Our World, which features books in history, social issues and science.
Many other important and interesting topics have their own Info Guides. There are also new staff picks and lists on the Readers' Salon blog.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NPR'S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR - GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER
A laugh-and-cry-out-loud memoir from a beloved star of Netflix's Queer Eye. The truth is, it hasn't always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy, growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn't understand why he was so...over the top. As a child, Jonathan was treated as an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and trauma. In this revelatory, raw, and rambunctious memoir, we meet the man behind the stiletto heels, the crop tops, and the sassy sayings. And we learn that no matter how broken or lost you may be, you're a Kelly Clarkson song, you're strong, and you've got this.
