  • All That She Carried

    For adults

    All That She Carried is a poignant story of resilience and of love passed down through generations of women against steep odds. It honors the creativity and fierce resourcefulness of people who preserved family ties even when official systems refused to do so, and it serves as a visionary illustration of how to reconstruct and recount their stories today.

  • Floaters

    For adults

    Martín Espada is a poet who "stirs in us an undeniable social consciousness," says Richard Blanco. Floaters offers exuberant odes and defiant elegies, songs of protest and songs of love from one of the essential voices in American poetry. Whether celebrating the visionaries—the fallen dreamers, rebels and poets—or condemning the outrageous governmental neglect of his father's Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane María, Espada invokes ferocious, incandescent spirits.

  • Hell of a Book

    For adults

    In Jason Mott’s Hell of a Book, a Black author sets out on a cross-country publicity tour to promote his bestselling novel. That storyline drives Hell of a Book and is the scaffolding of something much larger and urgent: since Mott’s novel also tells the story of Soot, a young Black boy living in a rural town in the recent past, and The Kid, a possibly imaginary child who appears to the author on his tour.

  • Sneaking out to the Telegraph Club

    For teens

    Lily Hu is a good girl with close friends, loving family, good grades, and tightknit community in San Francisco’s Chinatown. She likes unfeminine clothes, wants to travel in space, and is falling in love with her classmate Kathleen. However, 1954 is a dangerous time to be sneaking out to an LGBTQ+ nightclub, especially for Chinese people who were frequently targeted during McCarthy’s Red Scare.
