Bookstore Picks


October 9, 2021

A debut storyteller leads the list this week with a collection set in the volatile American South that’s not to be missed. We also hear from writers we’ve come to love and always anticipate their new offerings. There’s a page-turning thriller, a quixotic cross-country adventure, truths passed down among a dynasty of women and a powerful memoir about living with depression. All deal with acts of survival, whether escaping from society’s hardships, or inner demons.

Happy reading,
