Books - Series Description

New Books for New Readers

The Kentucky Humanities Council began New Books for New Readers because Kentucky's adult literacy students want books that recognize their intelligence and experience while meeting their need for simplicty in writing. The titles in the series have helped many adult students open the window on the wonderful world of literacy. At the same time, the New Books, with their plain langguage and compelling stories, have found a wider audience among accomplished readers of all ages who recognize a good read when they see one.
