Sunday A.M. graphic

Lincoln Journal Star logo
Every Sunday morning issue of Lincoln's Journal Star newspaper includes the "Sunday A.M." section, featuring articles with a cultural focus. Included in that section of the paper each week are regular author profiles and book reviews, by both local reviewers and national review services. Due to the regular popularity of the titles reviewed in the paper, we've devised this page of the Lincoln City Libraries' Web site as a simple listing of the books recently reviewed in the Lincoln Journal Star, with links into the library's holdings for all the listed books which are currently in the collection. If a title below is not hotlinked, this is an indication that the library does not currently own that book, but you may consider requesting the title through the services of our Interlibrary Loan department, or suggesting that we purchase it via our on-line Suggest-a-Title form.
