Summer Reading Recommendations: Have an addition?

An annual list compiled by the Swarthmore College Libraries

What is the summer reading list?

This Swarthmore tradition was started by science librarian Meg Spencer (1959-2015) in 2009. The Libraries continue this tradition in memory of our dear friend, and invite all staff, faculty, and students to participate.

How do I contribute?

We’re asking for:

  • One book you read in the past year that you would recommend to others, with a sentence or two about why you liked it
  • One book you plan to read this summer, no review or comments required. Who knowsmaybe it will end up being your recommendation for next year!

Please email your recommendations to Maria Aghazarian; feel free to reach out with any questions!
