Every other week, SDPL staff have their reviews published in the San Diego Union Tribune. Watch the Behind the Desk video to get a more in-depth review and bonus content!

Library assistant David Cederholm recommends State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, a thrilling read about a pharmacologist who journeys into the heart of the Amazonian delta to check on a field team that has been silent for two years.

Behind the Desk is our latest video series and delves deeper into the Recommended Reads published every other Sunday in the Union-Tribune. Check the Sunday Paper to see the latest review from SDPL staff from all over San Diego or view our archives on the library website: https://sandiego.gov/sdplreviews.
