Happy #BookBday (1/10/17 Edition)

Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday!

LOTUS by Lijia Zhang
This “compelling” (Publishers Weekly) debut novel follows a young Chinese woman as she defies her fate and escapes to the neon lights of Shenzhen and all it holds for her—be it love, danger, or destiny. “With expert pacing and description, Zhang vividly draws Lotus’ present and past, weaving together time lines, characters, and subplots that eventually reveal Lotus to be far more than the sweet, reserved girl she appears to be. At once immersive and delicate, Zhang’s writing takes Lotus to unexpected places as she searches for—and perhaps finds—what true freedom means.” — Booklist

SILENCE by Shusaku Endo
This movie adaptation of Endo’s classic novel of enduring faith in dangerous times, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, and Adam Driver is “shaping up to be this year’s THE REVENANT,” according to the Washington Post. Picador created a special expanded discussion guide for SILENCE, so your library’s book club can read and discuss before having a movie night out. readmoreremove
