Bookstore Picks

Here, There, and Everywhere

April 1, 2023

Two debuts and three returning writers grace this week’s selection. There are five voices from around the world: Mexico, the Czech Republic, Palestine, and the mountains of Tennessee. Ghosts haunt two of these books in different but powerful ways. Plus, an irresistible takedown of the Hollywood experience. And to usher in National Poetry Month, here is a haiku from Sonia Sanchez’s new collection, written when she was in Peking:

let me wear the day
well so when it reaches you
you will enjoy it.

Happy reading,
