The approach of Memorial Day means that a lot of people are nearing the end of a very weird school year — one that started with learning via computer screen and is concluding with a fitful return to something like normal, with proms and in-person graduation ceremonies, masked or not. But the end of school doesn’t need to mean the end of learning.

There’s a music memoir by Brandi Carlile and, in fiction, a collection of updated folk tales as well as novels set in Brazil, Japan, London and New York City.
