FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED POLITICS
by Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, Minyon Moore with Veronica Chambers
“Told with obvious deep respect and affection, this is a spirited look at the politics and personal lives of four iconic women.”— Booklist, starred review
“You don’t need to be black or a minority to grasp the need to stand up and fight in today’s political world. The authors lay it out well in this solid primer on how to ‘dare to enter the halls of power.’” — Kirkus Reviews
THE DREAM DAUGHTER
by Diane Chamberlain
THE LOVELY BONES meets THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE in Chamberlain‘s new novel about a mother who must take a mind-bending leap of faith in order to save her unborn baby girl who has a heart defect.
“Chamberlain expertly blends the time-travel elements with the wonderful story of a mother’s love and the depths of sacrifice she makes for her child. This is a page-turning crowd-pleaser.” — Publishers Weekly
“Chamberlain stretches her sense of familial relationships and toe-curling suspense in new directions, weaving in elements of trust, history, and time as she explores the things we do for love. With a little tension and a lot of heart, THE DREAM DAUGHTER will delight Chamberlain’s fans and hook new readers.” — Booklist
THE FLAME: Poems Notebooks Lyrics Drawings
by Leonard Cohen
If you felt Leonard Cohen’s death in 2016 as a personal assault, this book is a posthumous balm: a collection of previously unpublished poems, lyrics, and sketches. All of Cohen’s work has a raw, straight-to-the-heart intensity—reach for this the next time you need inspiration for a wedding toast that will leave them gutted, or any other moment you need a little sustenance for the soul.
“Poignant and brave, lit up with flashes of anger, this is a luminous collection and classic Cohen.”— Booklist, starred review
by Stormy Daniels
She was already well-known in some circles before March 6, 2018, but that’s probably the ﬁrst time you heard the name Stormy Daniels. That’s the day she filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement negotiated before the election but never signed.
In FULL DISCLOSURE, Stormy Daniels shares everything about how she came to be a leading actress and director in the adult ﬁlm business, the full truth about her journey from a rough childhood in Louisiana onto the national stage, and the events that led to the nondisclosure agreement and the behind-the-scenes attempts to intimidate her.
“I own my story and the choices I made,” she writes. “They may not be the ones you would have made, but I stand by them.”

Marianne was never supposed to return to town, the town where she grew up in the shadow of the Nazareth Mental Hospital.
