Musings of the Doerr Librarians


The Doerr Library is celebrating two amazing authors this month: Rainbow Rowell and Benjamin Alire Saenz. Both are keen observers of human nature.

Rainbow Rowell began her writing career as a columnist with the Omaha World Herald, her hometown paper in Nebraska. In 2012 she published her first YA novel. Her second novel entitled Eleanor & Park went on to receive critical acclaim by Good Reads, Amazon and The New York Times. With five novels under her belt and a motion picture deal in the works, Rowell is an author to read and watch!

Benjamin Alire Saenz is a poet and novelist from New Mexico. In an interview, Saenz said that he spent his childhood transfixed on the heavens. His education allowed him to travel the world but today he calls Texas his home. In 2013 he became the first Latino to receive the PEN/Faulkner award for Fiction and in 2014 he was awarded the Printz Honor for his YA novel Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Saenz is an English and Creative Writing teacher at the University of Texas at El Paso. Tender and thoughtful are the words that best describe Saenz's storytelling.

One of the things we love about the Fantasy genre is that there are so many great series to choose from. So, if you can't get enough of the characters in book one, you get to follow their adventures into the next book. This month we're highlighting two authors who both have best-selling series on their resumes. Leigh Bardugo is a leader in the current YA trend of the dark fantasy genre and the creator of the Grishaverse —the lavish fantasy world where magic and science collide. Holly Black is the author of contemporary fantasy books for kids and teens. Black's books for older teens are dark, edgy, urban fantasies and horror stories with mature themes that blend reality with the faerie and vampire worlds. Check out the Fantasy display in the Fiction section of the Doerr Library and you're sure to find a good book to sweep you away to another world.

If Graphic Novels are more your thing, take a look at some books by Yang.
