Whatcha reading this summer? We got summer reading lists from dozens of New Orleanians | The Latest


As July brings us some less than desirable weather — from triple-digit temperatures to storms — we now have an excuse to stay indoors, curl up and read a good book. Here’s what locals around the city are reading this summer.

Helena Moreno (New Orleans City Council president): “Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life” by Cleo Wade, “Beyond the Storm: How to Thrive in Life’s Toughest Seasons” by Debra B. Morton, “We Cast a Shadow” by Maurice Carlos Ruffin, “I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark” by Debbie Levy, “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey” by Kamala Harris

“Good books challenge your point of view, inspire further inquiry, encourage us to be better and bring smiles to your face. ‘The Truths We Hold’ does just that.”
