These Books Are ‘Most Wanted’ at Louisville Public Library

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Jermaine Fowler is a storyteller and self-proclaimed intellectual adventurer who spent his youth searching for knowledge on the shelves of his local free public library. In between research and lectures, he is the host of the top-rated history podcast, The Humanity Archive, praised as a must-listen by Vanity Fair. Challenging dominant perspectives, Fowler goes beyond the textbooks to find recognizably human stories. By connecting current issues with the heroic struggles of those who came before us, he brings hidden history to light and makes it incredibly relevant.

As summer progresses, so does travel. Why not enjoy a good book while you’re on the road? No matter your genre of choice, local Louisville libraries likely have what you’re looking for, and you might even win a prize.

The Louisville Free Public Library is raffling off prizes to those who complete its Summer Reading Challenge, which ends on August 3. Winners could receive free passes to local attractions or even a Nintendo Switch console.

The library provided The Courier Journal with a list of the “most wanted” print and digital books in the library system this summer. Selected titles have the most reservations and are worth adding to your summer reading list.
