What to Read? A Booklist of Narrative Nonfiction

For all those lovers of adult nonfiction, we’ve added a new page to our Wiki, JMRL Reads,  just for you, called Narrative Nonfiction!

The JMRL Wiki is a page made by JMRL’s librarians to help connect our readers to interesting new books. This week we’ve just added a link about narrative nonfiction. What’s that, you might ask?

Narrative nonfiction is nonfiction that reads like a novel. It’s sometimes called creative nonfiction or literary nonfiction. But it all amounts to the same– it’s nonfiction that is written in a creative and interesting way so that it reads more easily. It’s popular because it is informational, well-written, and reads like a story.

Here are some recommendations to get you started, but stay updated on the JMRL Reads page to be sure you don’t miss out on any new titles that are added to our list!
