William Morrow & Company: Her Last Flight by Beatriz Williams

Rediscover: Humans of New York

In 2010, Brandon Stanton began taking photographs of people he met on the streets of New York City. Humans of New York, a blog where Stanton posted these photos alongside quotes by his subjects, quickly gained millions of followers. In 2013, St. Martin's Press published a collection of 400 photos from Stanton's blog. The book, also called Humans of New York, became a massive bestseller and remains popular to this day. Little Humans (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), which collects photos of kids for kids, came out out in 2014. Humans of New York: Stories (2015) expands on the quotes and life stories shared by Stanton's latest subjects. It is available from St. Martin's Press ($29.99, 9781250058904). --Tobias Mutter
