Wondering what to read next? Drop by the Rosen Library for one of these top reads:


  • Burn this Book by Toni Morrison
    “In 11 short essays by some of the world's premier novelists, this volume explores a simple question: why write?” -Publishers Weekly
  • Cooperstown Confidential by Zev Chafets
    "Chafets brings both a fan’s affection and a social critic’s eye to his examination of the Cooperstown, N.Y. institution...amusing, sardonic and convincing." —Kirkus
  • Food of a Younger Land by Mark Kurlanski
    “Award-winning New York Times-bestselling author Mark Kurlansky takes us back to the food and eating habits of a younger America: Before the national hightway system brought the country closer together; before chain restaurants imposed uniformity and low quality; and before the Frigidaire meant frozen food in mass quantities, the nation’s food was seasonal, regional, and traditional.” -Publisher
  • Intent to Kill by James Grippando
    “Grippando takes a break from the Jack Swyteck series—some readers would call it a much-needed break—and delivers a fine stand-alone thriller.” -Booklist
  • Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend by Larry Tye
    “Paige’s contribution to baseball history, already enormous, is enhanced by the strong, solid arguments that Mr. Tye has constructed. “If Jackie Robinson was the father of equal opportunity in baseball, surely Satchel Paige was the grandfather,” this book maintains.” -NYT Book Review
  • Undead and Unwelcome by Maryjanice Davidson
    “Ms. Davidson has her own brand of wit and shocking surprises that make her vampire series one of a kind.” -Darque Reviews

  • Job Descriptions for the Private Club Industry published by the Club Managers Association of America
