NEW WORLD LIBRARY STAFF PICK: Associate Publicist Jennifer Listug Recommends SIDEWALK ORACLES by Robert Moss
By Publicity Admin
I don’t know about you, but I have always loved the holidays. I’m not religious, and I’m not much of a shopper, but I love the scent of fresh pine in my home and the glow of colorful Christmas lights adorning the outside of it. I love the taste of mulled wine, pumpkin pie, and latkes (which my mother makes for Hanukkah, though we are not Jewish). I even love the sparkly, glittery wrapping paper that makes a mess all over my living room carpet every year. For me, the holidays bring back a sense of joy and enchantment with the world, which was constant and effortless in childhood. During the holidays, I am reminded what it’s like to believe in magic. 

The older I get, the harder this becomes. Even as I write, I am aware that it has been less than a month since the attacks in Paris, and just over a week since the tragic shootings in San Bernardino. But this is all the more reason to let ourselves become enchanted again. After all, the celebrations of this season have always been about bringing light into the darkest time of year.

50 Ways Bikes Will Transform the World
By Jason Gardner

Books about ways we can improve our environment make up a small but important part of New World Library’s list. As an acquisitions editor, I’m always looking for positive environmental book ideas. In the San Francisco Bay Area, and other North American cities, it’s becoming more and more obvious that a quiet revolution is taking hold.

Clutter Busting, Clothing-Swap Style
By Samy AbulEla

The women of New World Library got together and held a clothing swap this week. Everyone took advice from our book Clutter Busting by Brooks Palmer and let go of clothes, shoes, and accessories we no longer wanted — the lightly-worn too-big, too-small, unflattering, no-longer-appealing stuff, and even a few brand-new items we either received as gifts or bought on a whim and later realized just didn’t work. According to Palmer, “Clothing represents different emotional periods of your life. If you keep a lot of things you don’t wear, your clothes closet has become a photo from your past.” So we took those words to heart and did some clutter busting of our own.
