RT @thethreadmpr: With the news full of discussions about faith, @KerriMPR recommends picking up Marilynne Robinson's "Gilead":…

Remember 9/11 through literature — It took time for writers to process and understand how America -- and the world -- changed after the attacks on Sept. 11. Now, a growing number of novels address the tragedy and its aftermath.

Fall reads: Three new books not to miss — In the publishing world, fall is known as "big book" season. This mix of fiction and non-fiction are at the top of my must-read stack.

Sampling new foods at the fair and on the page — The tantalizing, spice-infused descriptions of food in Richard Morais' novel, "The Hundred Foot Journey," will leave you hungry -- but the book will leave you satisfied.

'Devil in the White City': A very different time at the fair — With the Minnesota State Fair only days away, "Devil in the White City" offers a historical take on the dark side of another fair.

Relevant reads: Three novels about Cuba — As relations improve between the U.S. and Cuba, more Americans will be able to travel to the island nation. These three novels will have you reaching for your passport.

Nearly 70 years later, 'All the King's Men' shows not much has changed in politics — With the 2016 presidential race already dominating the news, consider a 69-year-old political thriller that still feels relevant: "All the King's Men."

Understanding the threats to big cats worldwide — With lions in the news, what about tigers? Dubbed the Indiana Jones of wildlife science, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz describes his efforts to save the tigers of Myanmar.

'Mexican WhiteBoy' tackles race for young adult readers

17 book ideas for the fall — I'm in a Roaming and Reading mood- maybe it's because I don't have a travel adventure planned until December. Until then, I'm going to let some wonderful novels take me far afield. I've been reading " The Undertow" by Jo Baker. And " Portrait in Sepia " by Isabelle Allende, one of my all-time favorite writers.
