Today the award-winning journalist released "The Best of Autumn Reading, 2020."
The annual list puts the spotlight on a select few emerging and established authors from Canada to L. A.; to New York, South Africa and the U.K.
Genres from the esteemed collection include health and wellness; science-fiction; children’s; mystery; non-fiction; humor; spiritual and suspense. The Best of Autumn Reading, 2020, is organized by title, publisher, author, a short synopsis of each book and a link for additional information or purchase.
“Every quarter I share ten books and their endlessly gifted authors with the world,” explained Briggs. “Some are best sellers by authors who have entertained readers for years; others are emerging but have captured the attention of people across the globe with their first book. This gives some indication of the depth of their talent and artistic diversity,” she concluded.
Below are the first ten of twenty selections. A second list features ten additional books in a subsequent news release. The numerical order does not coincide with ranking.
