Every month, we’ll bring you a unique selection of our books chosen by one of our SIU Press staff members. This month, our staff picks are from Jason Nugent, our Marketing and Sales Manager.

Here’s what Jason had to say about his picks.

20 Day Trips in and around the Shawnee National Forest by Larry P. Mahan and Donna J. Mahan – It’s hot out, but southern Illinois is full of natural beauty. This guidebook will help visitors explore our region.
