The Collector_s Apprentice
The Collector's Apprentice
by B. A. Shapiro

What a fun romp! Heiresses, con men, millionaires, and the most famous artists and literati of 1920s Paris converge in one delightful novel. B A Shapiro takes for her subject the real-life Albert Barnes of Philadelphia whose peerless art collection became controversial for its modern sensibilities, and drapes layers of scandal and mystery over the historical scaffolding. Readers will rub shoulders with luminaries such as Gertrude Stein and Henri Matisse, all while learning the most fascinating tidbits of early 20th century art history. It's the perfect novel for readers of Tracy Chevalier, Paula McClain, and Kristin Hannah. Meet B. A. Shapiro in person on Tuesday, November 27th at 7pm, and get your book signed!

This WIll Only Hurt a Little
This Will Only Hurt a Little
by Busy Philipps

This is by far my favorite celebrity memoir yet. Busy does an amazing job of weaving difficult topics and humor together to create a book that will make you switch from tears of sadness to tears of laughter as each page turns. We follow her through bad relationships, the brutal moments of show business, her surprise wedding, and dislocating her knee multiple times (and handling the situation like a pro....sometimes). Busy has such an honest and beautiful soul and has essentially transcribed her Instagram stories into an incredible book.

Louisiana_s Way Home
by Kate DiCamillo
This is now, hands down, my favorite novel of Kate's, and that's saying a lot! It has the feeling of her earlier novels, and I adore the voice of Louisiana. I started reading on the train, and couldn't help snorting laughter out loud. At the end, I was in tears. It really is one of those books here you get to the end and immediately start over again so you can stay with the characters a little longer. 
(Ages 10+)
