Hudson unveiled its “Celebrate Books and Booksellers” campaign, honoring powerful reads that sparked joy, fostered learning and inspired readers across North America throughout the year.
“While challenging in so many ways, 2020 is a year that has made me feel especially grateful for the comforts and joys of life – the big ones like health and friendship, and the smaller ones like a park to walk in, or reading a book,” said Sara Hinckley, senior vice president of books at Hudson. “Books both entertain and educate, and bring people together, even if socially distanced, by helping us see different perspectives and share the experience of loving the same books.”
Hudson is using the campaign to curate and tout leading books from 2020, including non-fiction releases such as Humankind: A Hopeful History by Rutger Bregman; Untamed by Glennon Doyle; How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram Kendi; Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor; and Wow, No Thank you – Hudson Exclusive by Samantha Irby. Among Hudson’s fiction recommendations are Homeland Elegies by Ayad Akhtar; Luster by Raven Leilani; The Friend by Sigrid Nunez; Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi; and Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy.
