Nonfiction - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [3]

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.



The former Paris bureau chief for the New York Times invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street. “I can never be sad on the rue des Martyrs,” Sciolino explains, as she makes readers hungry for Paris, for cheese and wine, and for the kind of street life that is quickly disappearing.
