    Monthly Newsletter

    Stay up-to-date with our monthly newsletter!

    This month, instead of everyone reading the same book, we will each choose our own uplifting or inspirational book! For recommendations, check out the library’s UpLit (that’s short for “uplifting literature”) booklist.


    What is “UpLit?”

    Here’s what Libby Page, a new writing coach at The Novelry and one of the writers at the forefront of the UpLit revolution, has to say:

    “One of the key markers of UpLit, I think (and seems to be the consensus if you have a dig through some of the articles written on the subject) is that while UpLit is optimistic, it is also grounded in reality and that means sometimes dealing with some very real, dark subjects. In my own novels I have explored subjects like grief, loneliness, panic attacks and family rifts. How the characters tackle these issues, though, and ultimately vanquish them, is what provides the ‘uplifting’ part. UpLit novels show characters grappling their way through dark times with the help of friends and community.”
