Autobiographies for April/May Reading

Hear about a few autobiographies that cover topics from silly to serious. Laurie Dreyer, manager of the Lansingburgh branch of Troy Public Library, recommends a few that she loved listening to as audiobooks. Her selections include: “My Beloved World” (Sonia Sotomayor, 2013); “You Can’t Touch My Hair” (Phoebe Robinson, 2016); and “Somebody’s Daughter: A Memoir” (Ashley Ford, 2021). Laurie gives honorable mentions to Tina Fey’s “Bossypants (2011); Dick Van Dyke’s “My Life In and Out of Show Business” (2011), and Michelle Zauner’s “Crying in H Mart: A Memoir” (2021).
