New From Our Speakers


Burned - Ed Humes

January 8th, 2019

“A searing look at the limits of forensics in this unsettling reexamination of the case of Jo Ann Parks… An instant true-crime classic that reads like a thriller, this joins the ranks of recent works also throwing into question the belief that crime scene investigators can infallibly arrive at the right answer.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review


McGlue - Ottessa Moshfegh

January 8th, 2019

“… a splashy new edition … Moshfegh’s first book introduces the kind of character, in all his psychological wildness and vivid grotesquerie that her others are known for, and readers will be more than intrigued.” — Booklist


Inheritance - Dani Shapiro

January 15th, 2019

“When Dani Shapiro discovers, purely by accident, that the father who raised her was not her biological father, she embarks upon a profound journey of understanding.  What is ancestry? What is identity? Inheritance is a compulsively-readable investigation into selfhood that burrows to the heart of what it means to accept, to love, and to belong.” —Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See

Creative Trespassing

Creative Trespassing - Tania Katan

February 12th, 2019

“Tania Katan – creative powerhouse, innovative thinker, purveyor of hilarity and fun – offers unique and valuable tools for bringing more creativity into your life. At once playful, smart, easy to implement and, dare I say, punk rock, the pages of this book will wake you up to your personal power and remind you just how enjoyable your life, and work, can be. I highly recommend you let her trespass all over your sitch and get yourself this fabulous book.” – Jen Sincero, #1 New York Times bestselling author of You are a Badass

The Back Channel

The Back Channel - Ambassador William J. Burns

March 12th, 2019

“Bill Burns is a treasure of American diplomacy and a model of the American idea and spirit when we need it most. In The Back Channel, Burns provides another great act of public service by giving us a smart, plainspoken account of America’s changing role in the world and the power and purpose of American diplomacy at its best.”—Hillary Clinton

Juliet's School of Possibilities

Juliet's School of Possibilities - Laura Vanderkam

March 12th, 2019

“Thousands of books explain how we should set priorities, stay focused, and make time for what truly matters—but that advice, however sound, is all too easy to ignore. Laura Vanderkam takes a different approach. By harnessing the irresistible power of story-telling, she makes those aims vivid and compelling in an entirely new way, to show us how and why we can make room for possibilities.” —Gretchen Rubin, author of The Four Tendencies and Better Than Before
