A few new books to check out!

The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store by James McBride

If it’s possible for America to have a poet laureate, why can’t James McBride be its storyteller-in-chief?

Why Fathers Cry at Night by Kwame Alexander

This magnanimous hybrid-form memoir is rich with solace and wisdom.

¬°Ay, Mija!

A sweet and memorable story of growth and self-discovery.

Tracy Flick Can't Win by Tom Perrotta

Nobody told this master of dark comedy there are things you can’t make jokes about. Watch him try.

Charming as a Verb by Ben Philippe

A satisfyingly amusing read.

The Mosquito Bowl by Buzz Bissinger

College football and World War II: not an obvious combination, but Bissinger handles it brilliantly.

Immortal Longings by Chloe Gong

Spectacular worldbuilding, breathtaking action, and plenty of mischief.

Into the Light by Mark Oshiro

An important and searing read on the value of family, agency, and belief.
