#BookBday (9/4/18 Edition)

Labor Day is over, so say Happy #BookBday to the big books of Fall, starting with…

DAUGHTER OF A DAUGHTER OF A QUEEN by Sarah Bird
Also available in audio
A September 2018 LibraryReads pick! This historical novel tells the compelling, hidden story of Cathy Williams, a former slave and the only woman to ever serve with the legendary Buffalo Soldiers, disguised as a man. “Bird’s fast-paced, action-packed story is a bittersweet one—grand love and legacy ultimately eluded Williams—but this fearless, often heartbreaking account sheds a welcome light on an extraordinary American warrior.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE GOLDEN STATE by Lydia Kiesling
One of Library Journal’s Best Early Fall 2018 Debuts, and Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Debuts of Fall 2018 with two starred reviews! “Kiesling’s intimate, culturally perceptive debut portrays a frazzled mother and a fractious America, both verging on meltdown. But perhaps best of all is her thought-provoking portrait of a pioneer community in decline as anger and obsession fray bonds between neighbors, family, and fellow citizens.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE PIRANHAS by Roberto Saviano
Also available in audio
Award-winning author of GOMORRAH returns with a saga of a city under the rule of a criminal network, and the Neapolitan boys who create their own gang. “A well-wrought crime story that could as easily have been a documentary: truthful and sobering.” — Kirkus Reviews

This last one is technically YA, but it has such good adult crossover appeal, and we’re HUGE fans of the author…
