Literature Lovers' Night Out™️

We are so excited about the first Literature Lovers' Night Out of the new year!  

SUCH A FUN AGE by Kiley Reid.  This remarkable debut novel is "...wildly fun and breathtakingly wise, deftly and confidently confronting issues of race, class, and privilege. (Taylor Jenkins Reid, DAISY JONES AND THE SIX). Kirkus calls it "charming, challenging, and so interesting you can hardly put it down."  We totally agree.

REMEMBRANCE by Rita Woods is a breakout historical debut with modern resonance, perfect for the many fans of The Underground Railroad and Orphan Train.  "Woods’ writing is assured, the historical settings vivid, and her characters fully realized. Hand this to fans of Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing and Octavia Butler's Kindred, who will appreciate this complex, genre-blending debut." --Booklist

RUN ME TO EARTH by Paul Yoon is a beautiful, aching novel about three kids orphaned in 1960s Laos—and how their destinies are entwined across decades.  “If you truly believe in the transformative power of literature then you must read this book. Run Me to Earth is a genuine masterpiece; fierce, tender, wise, earth-shattering, pulsating with love and hope.” (Miriam Toews, author of Women Talking)
