Faithful Cover Image

A teenager carries the guilt of being the driver in a car accident that left her best friend in a coma into her adult life. Shelby Richmond refuses to accept the good things that present themselves to her, pushing them away because she feels undeserving of happiness. Ms. Hoffman's novel about the price of guilt is an absorbing and ultimately uplifting experience, with the author's penchant for injecting her books with quirky characters who inhabit a slightly skewered world very much in evidence. - Alden Graves

August Newsletter
I hope summer is treating you well.
I am fortunate to be a judge for a program through the American Booksellers Association called Indies Introduce. The goal is to whittle down a long list of debut titles coming out in the winter/spring to the top 10 to present to our fellow booksellers at a trade show in January. Indies Introduce builds an audience for fabulous new works.
Many of these books explore community in one sense or another - family, ethnic groups, towns. How do we process change? Suffering? Powerlessness? How do our choices affect our communities? With all this swirling in my head, it was especially interesting to listen to Dr. Edward Cameron this week discuss the impact of the US pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord. He gave a superb, science-based presentation that ended with a discussion of how we can make individual choices that affect us, our communities, our world and, certainly, future generations. While he doesn't have a book, he did recommend a few titles for those of who want to explore more. And if you want a beach read, we have those too... (John Grisham's Camino Island is highly recommended and we still have a few signed copies.)
Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Chris Morrow

An exhilarating journey through the subcultures, occupied squats, and late-night scenes in the anarchic first few years of Berlin after the fall of the wall, and a gripping account of the 1989 "peaceful revolution" in East Germany that upended communism. 

This event will be 
in conversation with William Lewis, Professor of Philosophy at Skidmore College.
