This month's selection is Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.

“Kelly’s compelling first novel follows three women through the course of World War II and beyond. Despite some horrific scenes, this is a page-turner demonstrating the tests and triumphs civilians faced during war, complemented by Kelly’s vivid depiction of history and excellent characters.” (Publishers Weekly)

This month's selection is All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai.

“In this imaginative debut, Tom Barren’s version of 2016 is a technological utopia based on a model popularized by 1950s science fiction. There are flying cars, robot maids, jet packs, teleportation, ray guns, and space vacations. Unfortunately, an accident causes Tom to travel to an alternate timeline, socially and technologically backward - in other words, our own 2016.” (Publishers Weekly)

This month's selection is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.

“Inspired by a real-life event, a medical crisis results in an infant’s death and a murder charge against a black nurse named Ruth Jefferson. The story unfolds from three viewpoints: Ruth’s, the infant’s white supremacist father, and Ruth’s public defender, a white professional woman questioning her own views about racism.”
