On Display: A World of Books: International Fiction

There’s still a bit of summer left … what better time to discover a new author or settle in with an old favorite? This collection of books (and audiobooks) written by international authors (including two works by Bentley faculty members) offers titles from 44 countries.

It includes titles originally published in countries where English is the primary language, and titles that have been translated into English. The main focus of the display is 20th- and 21st-century authors, but you’ll also find some classics from previous centuries.

Also included are film adaptations of novels and plays.

Stop by the library’s lobby to browse the selections, or view a list of the titles on display
