Bookmarks: December 16th

Happy Friday, Savvy Readers! Welcome to the last edition of Bookmarks for the year. It’s been a fantastic year talking about bookish news with you all and I can’t wait to start up again next year. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves — there’s a lot of bookish news to fill you in on!

As if we needed a reason to love First Lady Michelle Obama and the cast of Hidden Figures more, they recently got together for a private screening of the upcoming movie. Afterwards, they discussed women’s education and STEM! See EW’s recap here.

I’m sure, as a Savvy Reader, that The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is already on your radar for next February, but in case you need convincing, the first three chapters of this amazing book is now available to read on Epic Reads! Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, The Hate U Give is a timely and important book. Start reading now!

Alrighty, Savvy Readers, I’m signing off for the year. I wish you all a happy holiday season filled with great company, treats, and, of course, books! Be sure to let us know what you’re planning on reading over the holidays in the comments below or on Twitter @SavvyReader.

See you next year,
Karen
