2020 Book Recommendations - 2nd Half of the Year!
Updated: Dec 16, 2020
Dear Friends and Fellow Readers:
You may recall that many of you asked for my book selections at mid-year, instead of year end, to help cope with sheltering in place because of this pandemic. Now it’s time for my year-end recommendations for the second half of the year. My book selections are in honor of my deceased mother Ilza Berry Williams.
2020 provided the opportunity to explore an extraordinary number and types of interesting books. This has been a year of great memoirs, rereading of great books of the past, and nonfiction. I have attached some additional suggestions from those categories.
Please explore the website and provide me with your favorites from 2020.

*My mother, llza Berry Williams, was a New York City schoolteacher. She taught reading, then all subjects to special needs students, and then English as a second language to Spanish speaking students. She became a principal, and then the Deputy to the School System Administrator for New York City before retiring. She managed to read a book a day before she passed.
