Happy #PubDay (9/17/19)

Explore one woman’s life inside Brooklyn’s Chasidic community + embark on an epic Chinese kung fu adventure in today’s #PubDay celebration!

ON DIVISION by Goldie Goldbloom

“Goldbloom, who is Chasidic and a mother of eight, vitally portrays the complex dynamics and paradoxes of a strictly regimented, unforgiving, yet loving religious enclave, and imaginatively and boldly explores the divide between tradition and compassion, community and self.”–Booklist

A HERO BORN by Jin Yong

“Newly translated into English, the ‘Legends of the Condor Heroes’ series is an epic, fantastical tale filled with betrayal, brotherhood, and kung fu energy. The first in the series shows the depth of Jin Yong’s writing, and the sobriquet of ‘China’s Tolkien’ is well deserved.”–Library Journal, starred review
