Review by Bookie Larry Yoder
June marks the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and a string of different celebratory events. Normandy '44 is about the Invasion and its influence on the next ninety days. It is a book of strategy and tracing the conflicts, but it's also full of individual stories. Written on a more traditional history writing pattern than an unfolding story platform, the book is very good but will take time to read. The scope of the story is comprehensive in approach and should answer many questions of why and how for the reader. Good book and a little over 600 pages. Holland is well respected as a writer of history. 
 
And for more books about D-Day and the events around it, please visit the display in our store that Larry carefully curated and feel free to see a few of the selections on our website here.  
 
 
Ryan Andrews       
This graphic novel has been making waves for months before its release. A charming story of a group of friends who want to stay out all night..until they see where the paper lanterns their town releases go. Even though promises are made, friends quickly abandon the hunt, leaving two reluctant and ill-called 'friends' to go on alone. Filled with wonder and adventure, this dreamlike story is going to be big.   
 
 
Now optioned by HBO and now in paperback! The Outsider is classic King that starts with an impossible premise that quickly changes the rules of reality and just as quickly acclimates you to what could be possible. How can a man that couldn't have committed an unforgivable crime have done just that?  
 
 
 
June is Pride Month and this book focuses on one of the biggest cultural moments that led to the creation of events like Pride Month. A picture-book historical retelling of the Stonewall Inn raid of 1969.  
 
 
 
Fall, or Dodge in Hell
One of the biggest sci-fi writers on the planet returns with this gripping story of life after death, and what a digital afterlife would look like. From Bookie Larry: "He seems to be saying that if you create a God, watch out for a Fall. If you like Stephenson then you are going to get a lot of him in the book."
