Nonfiction - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [2]

Features bestselling and popular nonfiction titles that are highly engaging and have a broad appeal to many readers. Titles cover a wide spectrum of nonfiction sub-genres — including: armchair travel, popular science, pets and animals, popular culture, humor, history, current events, and biographies and memoirs, and other standouts in narrative nonfiction.



Between the world wars, no sport was more popular, or more dangerous, than airplane racing. Fly Girls recounts how a cadre of women banded together to break the original glass ceiling: the entrenched prejudice that conspired to keep them out of the sky.
