Bookstore Picks

Out of the Shadows

February 3, 2024

If the groundhog’s prediction is to be believed, we can look forward to an early spring, but in the meantime, there are treasures published weekly to make staying inside pleasurable. February is Black History Month, and this week we are highlighting a new book about Black Appalachian cooking and the family stories that inform the recipes. See more of our current and classic picks to celebrate the month on our website. An Aboriginal Australian writer will grace our stage in an exciting event as part of our International Library series; a story set in ’90s London reveals the seedy side of journalism; a splendid writer returns with her tenth novel, set in Scotland’s Kingdom of Fife; and a Canadian writer transforms her journals into a literary high-wire act.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
Buyer, The Center for Fiction Bookstore
