Between Two Kingdoms by Suleika Jaouad
A Memoir of a Life Interrupted // In the summer after graduating from college, Suleika Jaouad was preparing, as they say in commencement speeches, to enter “the real world”. She had fallen in love and moved to Paris to pursue her dream of becoming a war correspondent. The real world she found, however, would take her into a very different kind of conflict zone.
On the Ho Chi Minh Trail by Sherry Buchanan
The Blood Road, the Women Who Defended It, the Legacy // Part travelogue, part history, and part reflective meditation on conflict and reconciliation, Sherry Buchanan’s new book offers both a personal and historical exploration of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, highlighting the critical role women militia and soldiers played in defending the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War.
Group by Christie Tate
How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life // The refreshingly original debut memoir of a guarded, over-achieving, self-lacerating young lawyer who reluctantly agrees to get psychologically and emotionally naked in a room of six complete strangers—her psychotherapy group—and in turn finds human connection, and herself. Nine words that can change everything: “You don’t need a cure, you need a witness.”

Think Again by Adam Grant
The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know // Why do we refresh our wardrobes every year, renovate our kitchens every decade, but never update our beliefs and our views? Why do we laugh at people using computers that are ten years old, but yet still cling to opinions we formed ten years ago? In the end, learning to rethink may be the secret skill to give you the edge in a world changing faster than ever.

The Woman Who Stole Vermeer by Anthony M. Amore
The True Story of Rose Dugdale and the Russborough House Art Heist // In the world of crime, there exists an unusual commonality between those who steal art and those who repeatedly kill: they are almost exclusively male.

What We Didn’t Expect by Melody Schreiber
Personal Stories about Premature Birth // Until now there hasn’t been a book that has collected personal experiences from people who have parented, cared for, or have been premature babies. Everything from life-changing tests of faith to navigating the red tape of healthcare bureaucracy; from overcoming unimaginable grief to surviving and thriving against all odds.
Sitting Pretty by Rebekah Taussig
The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body // Writing about the rhythms and textures of what it means to live in a body that doesn’t fit, Rebekah reflects on everything from the complications of kindness and charity, living both independently and dependently, experiencing intimacy, and how the pervasiveness of ableism in our everyday media directly translates to everyday life.
