Watch Gwen’s Take: Summer Reading on PBS. See more from Washington Week.

Gwen Ifill’s summer reading list is heavy on politics, but also full of lush fiction from writers like Edwidge Danticat, Elinor Lipman and Daniel Silva. On the non-fiction front, she’s reading books from fellow political journalists Peter Baker, Dan Balz and Mark Leibovich, whose latest on Washington’s power elite, “This Town,” she says is “full of gossipy little nuggets — so that was fun!”
