In honor of Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we are highlighting some of the books written by or about LGBTQIA+ people featured in the FSU Libraries’ Popular Literature collection. Some of these are newly added to the collection and many were purchased with funds from an FSU President’s Diversity and Inclusion mini-grant. Books are continually being added to the collection.
FSU Libraries’ Popular Literature committee was fortunate to have earned funding to expand their Pop Lit collection through an FSU President’s Diversity and Inclusion mini-grant. This grant allows the committee to strengthen the collection with both fiction and nonfiction books from and about underrepresented groups. Books that are diverse and inclusive have been shown to help improve empathy for their readers.
The first order from the Diversity and Inclusion mini-grant have started to arrive!!! Stop by the main floor of Strozier to check out the new selections.
Visit the Pop Lit section on the main floor in Strozier Library to find the perfect book for your summer vacation! Below are a few of the newest books we’ve added to the collection.
The Popular Literature collection is continuing to grow!!
A lot of titles were also added to the Self Help and Advice genres to help you do a self-check as the craziness of the semester continues. We’d love for you to check out these titles but remember the University Counseling Center is always available to anyone who needs it!
Do you need a mental break from your studies? The Popular Literature Collection at FSU is specifically catered to bring what you want to read into your library. The Pop Lit Collection was started after a request from the Student Government. The Pop Lit committee carefully selects books from multiple genres that range across literary fiction, true crime, fantasy, biographies, and more. We just got our first order of 2019 in and are excited to add twelve titles to the shelves!
