Choosing a Culture or Theme

Book Lists and Resources

The follow resources will have you identify books related to your theme or culture. Most either have a list organized by theme, or have a search filter that allows you to refine the titles by culture/theme.

Finding Information on Authors

As you are choosing your titles, you might want to learn more about an author and their background. Below are some library resources that contain biographies. If your author is a new writer, or hasn't published much, you may not find information on them, but these resources are a good place to start.

Additional places to look could be the author's website or the publisher's website. A simple web search of the author's name may also help you find interviews, speaking events, social media profiles or other material to help you learn more about them.
