What are Emory librarians reading, listening to, and viewing?



International Fiction Focus:

The International and Area Studies subject librarians have collaborated on a unique library guide that introduces well-known fiction writers from around the world in our collection who have been translated into English. A special focus has been placed on highlighting authors who bring an underrepresented perspective to their literary contexts. This includes writers from racial, ethnic, and indigenous minority backgrounds as well as sexual and gender minorities. It also includes those authors who are known for their experimentation in style and genre. Check out their recommendations for Chinese science fiction, Argentinian queer fiction, and Nigerian romances!



A great big thank you to all of the library folks in ILL, Music & Media, and our subject librarians for sharing their favorites and wish lists. If you have your own favorite titles and are looking for similar titles, try NoveList, which will recommend read-a-likes and similar series for all ages.
