Marie Benedict has created a new novel called the personal librarian, which she’s co-authored with victoria Christopher Murray, an author. He has written several novels and plays and won awards for her teenage literature works. The personal librarian is a fantastic read for three distinct reasons. 

The first being that it is a well-written historical fiction novel. Secondly, it is an honest, emotionally charged novel about the civil rights movement and the strength of love in the African-American community. Thirdly, it is a book that flips the narrative about black women in history from serving as the help to being the help-getter and therefore refuses to perpetuate negative stereotypes about black women.

The personal librarian brings to life the complexities of serving as a research librarian at an elite college and the lifelong friendship that blooms between two women who first meet as young undergraduates. 


The New York Times bestsellers list has been around since 1942. And is one of the book world’s most recognizable and controversial lists of fiction favorites. These days amazon breaks out their bestseller list (also a blast from the past to remember the time before online booksellers). But neither indicates that these books are taken from print sales only. The NY Times bestsellers list is also a somewhat interesting case due to its relatively new e-book section as a sub-category, but only how many print copies were sold to be named to the list.
