THE DINNER LIST by Rebecca Serle
Also available in audio
A September 2018 LibraryReads & Indie Next pick & an ALA Annual 2018 “Read n’ Rave” pick! When Sabrina Nielsen arrives at her thirtieth birthday dinner she finds at the table not just her best friend, but also her favorite professor from college, her father, her ex-fiance, and Audrey Hepburn. “A bittersweet tale of love, loss, and living with the memories.” — Kirkus Reviews

SHE WOULD BE KING by Wayétu Moore
The #1 September 2018 Indie Next pick, A BookExpo 2018 Editor’s Buzz book, one of Library Journal’s Best Fall 2018 Debuts, and one of Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Fall 2018 Debuts! Moore’s powerful debut novel blends history and magical realism in a reimagining of the dramatic story of Liberia’s early years through three unforgettable characters who share an uncommon bond. “Moore is a brisk and skilled storyteller who weaves her protagonists’ disparate stories together with aplomb yet is also able to render her sprawling cast of characters in ways that feel psychologically compelling. In addition, the novel’s various settings—Virginia, Jamaica, and West Africa—are depicted so lushly that readers will find themselves enchanted.” — Kirkus Reviews

ONE PERSON, NO VOTE: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy by Carol Anderson
“Esteemed professor and award-winning author of the bestselling WHITE RAGE Anderson examines the treacherous machinations of a government actively working to exclude voters based on undisguised racial profiling. This a whiplash-inducing chronicle of how a nation that just a few short years ago elected its first black president now finds itself in the throes of a deceitful and craven effort to rip this most essential of American rights from millions of its citizens.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
