The list covers both new releases and older works from authors such as Tea Obreht, Colson Whitehead, Ted Chaing, Haruki Murakami, Dinaw Mengestu and Hilary Mantel.

Mr. Obama started with an invitation to read works by the Nobel Laureate, Toni Morrison, who died last week at the age of 88.

''Beloved, Song of Solomon. The Bluest Eye, Sula everything else - they're transcendent, all of them,'' he wrote. ''You'll be glad to read them,'' The former president presented the author with Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012.

US President Barrack Obama's interest in reading has been well documented. The former New York Times chief book critic Michiko Kakutani reported at the end of Barack Obama's presidency that he would read for about an hour on most nights.

Obama said that reading fiction left him ''better able to imagine what's going on in the lives people throughout my presidency.''

He shared recommendations for books and movies throughout his presidency and continued the tradition after leaving office.

Last summer, he posted a more academic nonfiction works to his Facebook page. At the end of the year he released a list of his favorite works of 2018. His wife Michelle Obama's memoir ''Becoming'' topped the list.

In the reading list he shared on Monday, Mr. Obama continued to promote a diverse group of  writers, many of whom focus on issues of race, immigration, gender and class.

''I am deeply honored to be on @Barck Obama summer reading list, and more than a little nostalgic for a president who values reading,'' the author Lauren Wilkinson wrote on Twitter.

Obama wrote that Mr. Wilkinson's ''American Spy,'' her debut novel about a black female secret agent, is a ''whole lot more than just a spy thriller wrapping together the ties of family, of love, and of country.''

The list also includes ''The Nickel Boys,'' Mr. Whitehead's fictionalized account of the of the state-run Dozier School for Boys, whose dozens of students were tortured,

Whitehead was among a handful of novelists, along with Zadie Smith, Barbra Kingsolver, Junot Diaz and Dave Eggers, whom Obama invited to a luncheon at the end of his presidency.

Stephanie land's recent memoir, ''Maid,'' which chronicles her times as a single mother and cleaner, offers an ''unflinching look'' at America's class divide'' and ''a reminder of the dignity of all work,'' according to Mr. Obama.

''I'm so dead in,'' Ms. Land wrote on Twitter in response to the list. ''I can't believe I get a chance to get be on that list with these very incredible writers.''

Another memoir, Hope Jahren's ''Lab Girl,'' follows both the writers personal journey to becoming a scientist and her work on the secret life of plants. In her 2016 review of the work,

In her 2016 review of the work, Ms. Kakutani called it ''a book that, at its best, does for botany what Oliver Sack's essays did for neurology.''

With respectful dedication to the Grandparents, Parents, Leaders, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world.
