Nonfiction Book Picks for April

Hear about a a few recent non-fiction books covering AI, space, politicians, and more. Christiann Gibeau, head adult librarian at Troy Public Library, also talks about how books are selected for the collection, the materials from their “government depository” being removed and available for the taking, and the museum passes available through the library. Books discussed: “How AI Works: From Sorcery to Science” (Kneusel, 2024); “Mean Girl Feminism: How White Feminists Gaslight, Gatekeep, and Girlboss” (Nguyen, 2024); “How Space Works: The Facts Visually Explained” (Moss & Westlake, eds., 2021); “The Last Politican: Inside Joe Biden’s White House and the Struggle for America’s Future” (Foer, 2024); and “Tired of Winning: Donald Trump and the End of the Grand Old Party” (Karl, 2023).
