    Books to keep on your radar:  


    GOOD COMPANY by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney is a novel that explores the enduring bonds of family, marriage, friendship, and motherhood.  With deliciously flawed characters, it tells a big-hearted story of the lifelong relationships that both wound and heal us, and all the things that get in the way of both friendships and families.  


     


    FOOTNOTES by Caseen Gaines tells the story of how Sissle and Blake, along with comedians Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles, overcame poverty, racism, and violence to harness the energy of the Harlem Renaissance and produce a Broadway hit that launched the careers of many of the twentieth century's most beloved Black performers. While also breaking down barriers between Black and White communities at a crucial point in our history.

    Books to keep on your radar:  


    WHEN THE APRICOTS BLOOM Gina Wilkinson is a novel inspired by the author’s own experiences.  The story is told through the eyes of three very different women in Iraq at the turn of the millennium, and each woman must confront the complexities of trust, friendship, and motherhood under the rule of a dictator and his ruthless secret police.  


     


    WE RUN THE TIDES by Vendela Vida is a coming-of-age story that centers around a girl’s disappearance in 1984 San Francisco. It's both a gripping mystery and a tribute to the wonders of youth, in all its beauty and confusion.  It’s also an achingly beautiful story of female friendship, betrayal, and the changing landscape of San Francisco.  


     


    AFTERSHOCKS by Nadia Owusu is a deeply felt memoir that grapples with the multiplicity of identity, the push and pull of belonging, the meaning of home,  the emotional toll of family secrets, the complexities of family, and the ripple effects, both personal and generational, of emotional trauma.
