BLACK KLANSMAN: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime by Ron Stallworth (movie tie-in edition)
Also available in audio & mass market
The extraordinary true story of the African American police officer who goes undercover to investigate the KKK, the basis for the forthcoming major motion picture (BlacKkKlansman) written and directed by Spike Lee, produced by Oscar winner Jordan Peele, and starring Adam Driver, John David Washington, Topher Grace, and Alec Baldwin. Fun fact: Lee won the Grand Prix award at the Cannes Film Festival for BlacKkKlansman!

BROTHER by David Chariandy
One of Kirkus Reviews’ “Excellent Summer Reads for Your Book Club” and Publishers Weekly’s Best Summer Books of 2018! “A novel about the indignities, frustrations, and joy found in a Toronto public housing complex. Chariandy’s second novel is a slender volume with the heart of a family epic. An important, riveting novel about dreams, families, and the systems holding them back.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

CAT FLAP by Alan S. Cowell
When she awoke as a cat, Dolores Tremayne saw no immediate advantage in having four paws instead of two arms and two legs… A brilliant, funny novel of love, marriage, and modern life. “The novel is literate in the best sense of the term, with Cowell’s wearing his intelligence and sense of humor lightly, mixing in references to high culture (Proust, Kierkegaard) and popular culture (the Disney movie The Aristocats) to great effect. Recommended for fans of literary humor and anyone who loves cats.” — Library Journal

THE DESCENT OF MONSTERS by JY Yang
The third enthralling silkpunk fantasy in JY Yang’s Tensorate Series, which combines magic, mystery, and enraged dinosaurs. “Yang’s third series novella (after THE RED THREADS OF FORTUNE) continues to establish silkpunk fantasy as a superbly original subgenre.” — Library Journal
