Book publishers predict winter reading lists will be a mix of non-fiction picks that reflect current events and fiction choices that offer escapism.

Other trends include readers reaching for older titles by familiar authors -- the literary equivalent of comfort food.

In Columbus, readers can join the “One Book - One Community” initiative and pick up a copy of “Stamped” by Jason Reynolds.

Today on All Sides Weekend: Books with Christopher Purdy: Columbus libraries’ Quick Picks and other recommendations.

Guests:

  • Kassie Rose, WOSU book critic
  • Kris Hickey, youth services manager, Whetstone branch, Columbus Library
