June Book Club News

Summer reading is around the corner, and our June titles kick off with two sizzling thrillers from authors Catherine McKenzie and Hilary Davison. In new fiction: an enchanting ode to the art of letter writing; the story of a debt collector and an older woman whose lives intersect; and a gripping novel about friendship, love, and the impact of choices we make as teens. All authors are sharing creative food pairings (chocolate margaritas, Disco fries, frijoles de la olla , fish and chips and more!)
  • In June’s Book Club Buzzes we’re celebrating the release of Jenna Blum's The Lost Family — about a family forever shadowed by its patriarch’s experience in World War II — in paperback, and Heidi Diehl's debut novel, Lifelines, about an American artist who returns to Germany. Look for the authors’ book inspired recipes, letters, giveaways and more on June 4 and June 18.
