The 16 Best Nonfiction Books Coming Out In April 2018

We have officially transitioned from winter to spring, and though winter is the perfect season for readers, I’m ready to move on. The year’s most anticipated books have been solid so far, and the month ahead will continue to deliver. April’s best nonfiction books in particular form quite the lineup. The titles coming out in the days and weeks ahead will give us all a great reason to celebrate spring.

This month, well-known authors like Sloane Crosley and Alexander Chee, among others, release new work. They’re joined by public figures — including former FBI Director James Comey, Oscar winner Christine Lahti, and outgoing Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards — all of whom are putting out compelling reads to carry you through to summer. And I’d be remiss if I failed to mention that there are also excellent books from skilled writers whose names you may not know yet.

While the end of winter does mean fewer fires to curl up beside, I’m all about the arrival of promising nonfiction new releases. Cozy indoor reading is great and all, but the books themselves are still the most important part. Read on for 16 nonfiction books being published in April that you’ll definitely want to consider reading soon.
