Featured Title:

Ancestor Trouble: A Reckoning and a Reconciliation

by Maud Newton

Newton's much-anticipated book is an examination of her own family's past as well as a wider look at the growing cultural and scientific significance of genealogy. Mental illness and religious fanaticism percolated through Newton’s maternal lines back to an ancestor accused of being a witch in Puritan-era Massachusetts. Her father was an educated man who extolled the virtues of slavery and obsessed over the “purity” of his family bloodline. Newton's research into her troubled ancestry takes her and the reader into the realms of genetics, epigenetics, and the debates over intergenerational trauma.

Featured Title:

Cress Watercress

by Gregory Maguire

In this richly imagined woodland adventure, a grieving rabbit family—Mama, Cress, and baby Kip—must leave their comfortable warren to start over without their lost Papa. Mama moves the family to the basement unit of the Broken Arms, a run-down apartment oak with a suspect owl landlord, a nosy mouse super, a rowdy family of squirrels, and a pair of songbirds who broadcast everyone’s business. Can a dead tree full of annoying neighbors, and no Papa, ever be home?


"Warmhearted and utterly charming." Kirkus Reviews

Featured Title:

The Most Dazzling Girl in Berlin

by Kip Wilson

This historical novel set on the cusp of World War II tells the story of Hilde, an orphan, who, on her 18th birthday, goes out into Berlin to discover her place in the world. She stumbles into Café Lila—a vibrant cabaret full of expressive customers—and Rosa, the club’s waitress and performer, who is Jewish. As the café and all who work there embrace Hilde, and she embraces them in turn, she discovers her voice and her own blossoming feelings for Rosa. Written in a series of free-verse poems, this novel captures the mood and times in sparse poetry, making this work equally appealing for learning history and pleasure reading.
