Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride
by Lucy Knisley

Submitted by Emily D.
Lucy Knisley’s graphic memoir written about her engagement, wedding planning process, and reception is a comprehensive guide of things to consider and investigates some common wedding issues in its pages (feminism, expectations, drama, and confusion among others). As a recently engaged human it was comforting to get acknowledgement that wedding planning is, indeed, stressful and overwhelming but, ultimately, incredibly rewarding. It gave me the pep talk I needed to start my own planning process.

Long Bright River
by Liz Moore

Submitted by Terri S.
In this intense and moving novel, a distraught Kensington, Philadelphia police officer is desperate to locate her homeless and opioid addicted sister, who has been missing for several months. Her disappearance comes at the same time their neighborhood is under the attack of a vicious killer targeting women. The author masterfully blends the reality of the opioid crisis with a moving, complex story of family. Filled with tough characters, plot twists, and a strong sense of place, this novel is sure to please suspense and mystery fans as well as those who enjoy solid literary fiction. 
I highly recommend.

A Fire Story
by Brian Fies

Submitted by Kelly F.
Author and illustrator Brian Fies tells the story of the day his house “disappeared” in the 2017 Tubbs Fire and chronicles life in the wake of this disaster. Waking in the night to a power outage and an eerie orange glow was the prelude to losing his home and nearly everything he owned. The author poignantly shows what it is like to live through realization after realization, of loss upon loss. Brian Fies uses all the strengths of the graphic novel genre to deliver story, emotional depth, and informational content. With wild fires now devastating land and lives from California to Australia this timely story was hard to put down.

Lady Clementine
by Marie Benedict

Submitted by Kelly K.
Marie Benedict offers another strong historical-fiction portrayal of a famous wife, this time Winston Churchill’s wife Clementine. An interesting account of behind the scenes politics of WWI and WWII with Clementine’s influence never faltering. She rarely allows herself to be taken for granted, or if she does, it will only a matter of time before she ends up vindicated. 
A powerful, intelligent woman!
