We’ve hit the halfway point in 2017, and even though the year has been extremely eventful so far, you’re not alone if you can’t quite believe how fast July managed to sneak up on us. Yet, unbelievable or not, the month is here, along with its annual patriotic festivities. That includes the usual fun — fireworks, barbecues, apple pie, etc. — but in the midst of it all, there are so many new books coming out in July. Between lighting sparklers and locating the best swimming spot nearby, you’ll want to find time for the many quality nonfiction books due out in July.
The genre features quite the hodgepodge of options this month. Fittingly, there are books about important historical figures, along with work that examines different aspects of our culture and society. Since our founding fathers were all about creating a more perfect union, you can honor them by learning more about today’s issues. If that’s not your cup of tea, memoirs dealing with everything from serial killers to stray cats are also on offer.
If you have extra days off this month, get reading. The 16 nonfiction books below, all due out in July, are a great place to start.
