Upcoming Selections:

The Kiss Quotient Book CoverJune 1
The Kiss Quotient
by Helen Hoang – (2018) fiction

A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.




The Vixen book coverJuly 6
The Vixen
by Francine Prose – (2021) fiction

In 1953 at a distinguished New York publishing firm, Simon Putnam, a recent Harvard graduate, is tasked with editing a steamy bodice-ripper based on the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg–a project that makes him realize that the people around him are not what they seem.



Untamed book coverAugust 3
by Glennon Doyle – (2020) nonfiction

Untamed is both a memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It offers a piercing, electrifying examination of the restrictive expectations women are issued from birth; shows how hustling to meet those expectations leaves women feeling dissatisfied and lost; and reveals that when we quit abandoning ourselves and instead abandon the world’s expectations of us, we become women who can finally look at our lives and recognize ourselves.
