 The Books We're Excited About this Week


The Other Woman by David Silva (Fiction)

"From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power."

Bad Girls by Alex de Campi, Illustrated by Victor Santos (Graphic Novel)

From the Eisner-nominated writer Alex de Campi and virtuoso artist Victor Santos, this heart-pounding, starkly colored, and visually stunning graphic novel, three women have twelve hours to get out of Cuba with six-million dollars on the night of New Year’s Eve 1958.

When They Go Low, We Go High: Speeches That Shape The World and Why We Need Them by Philp Collins (Current Interest)

From Cicero to Michelle Obama, these are the most historically significant speeches ever delivered―and an inclusive analysis of what makes them so great.  Collins creates a strong defense of the power of public speaking to propagate and protect democracy and an urgent reminder that when great men and women speak to us, their words can change the world.

Mermaid School by JoAnne Stewart Wetzel, Illustrated by Julianna Swaney (Children's Picture Book)

Starting school is always exciting... especially when you're a mermaid! From schools of fish to the A B Seas, this whimsical underwater tale puts a fun twist on what to expect on the first day of school.

Rad Girls Can by Kate Schatz, Artwork by Miriam Klein Stahl (Young Adult Non-Fiction)

From the New York Times best-selling authors of Rad Women Worldwide and Rad American Women A-Z, a bold and brave collection of stories and art about inspiring and accomplished girls who have made positive impacts on the world before the age of 20.
