LHRT Reads–Information Hunters: When Librarians, Soldiers, and Spies Banded Together in World War II Europe

Hi friends —

Amanda Belantara, Michele Fenton, and I want to ensure that everyone is seeing important announcements about LHRT Reads, so we’re posting this via ALA Connect, the blog, and e-mails to all members. Please forgive the cross-postings!  🙂

First, the next LHRT Reads event will be on Thursday, December 16th, at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom. We will be discussing Kathy Peiss’s Information Hunters: When Librarians, Soldiers, and Spies Banded Together in World War II Europe . If you’d like to attend, please register ahead of time at https://nyu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMrcuyrqjIuHtJ29MHWlOVZp3maG80tCMxE . After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail with information for attending the program. Also, we’ll use the registration list to send reminders about the event.

Secondly, we will soon select titles for LHRT Reads 2022. If there is a title you’d like us to consider, feel free to go this  Google Doc, read about the process at the beginning of the doc, and add your recommendations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rymqeeWzHhMARweDFd1NHkHRVQKpYZ6JQmMnUBkm2PM/edit?usp=sharing . Please submit and upvote titles by December 1st so that Amanda and I will have plenty of time to gather pricing and other information, collect member feedback, and select 6 titles in time for the first LHRT Reads discussion in February 2022.

Looking forward to seeing you at LHRT Reads!
