Conversations Reveals Its 25 Summer Reads for 2016

With a continued focus on encouraging reading and connecting individuals with books that fit their interests, Media Personality and Conversations Book Club President Cyrus Webb is excited about this year’s Summer Reads for 2016 for Young Adult/Adult readers.

“When it comes to bettering ourselves that is a year-round opportunity,” says Webb,40. A Mississippi native, he understands the importance of reading and the opportunities it affords those who are able to take advantage of it. “During the Summer I can understand us all wanting to take a break, but we adults have to lead by example. If younger ones see us taking out the time to read, then they are more inclined to follow our example.”

This year Webb’s Summer Reading List focuses on 25 books that he has personally read and even interviewed the authors on his radio program Conversations LIVE.  Since he has become familiar with what each one of them addresses, he believes that everyone will be able to find at least one book on the list that they can enjoy during the Summer months.
