Nonfiction Books for July

The pandemic, flavor mixing, librarians, and artificial intelligence. Christiann Gibeau, head of adult services at Troy Public Library, is back with her monthly recommendations of new nonfiction books to read. First we hear about a scavenger hunt to find images around Troy. And then come the books: “2020: One City, Seven People, and the Year Everything Changed” (Eric Klinenberg, 2024); “The Flavor Thesaurus: More Flavors: Plant-Led Pairings, Recipes, and Ideas for Cooks” (Niki Segnit, 2023); “The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians” (James Patterson & Matt Eversmann, 2024); and “Unmasking AI: My Mission to Protect What is Human in a World of Machines” (Joy Buolamwini, 2023). For more details on books and activities, visit www.thetroylibrary.org. To find other libraries in New York State, see www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/libs/#Find.
