The inspiring and devastating biography of Marie Colvin, the foremost war reporter of her generation, who was killed in Syria in 2012.

THE SUN DOES SHINE: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row by Anthony Ray Hinton 
Three starred reviews!

A Chicago Public Library Best of 2018 
A powerful, revealing story of hope, love, justice, and the power of reading by a man who spent thirty years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit.

THE GIFT OF OUR WOUNDS: A Sikh and a Former White Supremacist Find Forgiveness After Hate by Arno Michaelis and Pardeep Singh Kaleka 
The powerful story of a friendship between two men–one Sikh and one skinhead–that resulted in an outpouring of love and a mission to fight against hate. “[B]oth Kaleka’s chronicling of the day of the shooting and Michaelis’ frank recounting of his former attitudes and acts make for heartbreaking reading, but their work together is inspiring and gives readers hope that the next generation can do much to heal America’s great divide.”–Booklist, starred review
