Hello Davina (new free list)
There is much of note among this week's dozen new and notable books starting with a collection of stories celebrating the day in October 1915 when tens of thousands of women took to the streets of New York to demand the right to vote (the 19th Amendment was ratified five years later in 1920.) Thirteen authors contributed to Stories from Suffragette City
including Lisa Wingate, M.J. Rose, Paula McLain, Christina Baker Kline, Fiona Davis and Chris Bohjalian. Our members are currently reviewing it for our First Impressions program, click "reader reviews" to see what they think.
The week also brings novels from Martin Amis, Fannie Flagg, Jess Walter, Nicci French and a much lauded debut from Bryan Washington titled Memorial
Meanwhile, in our weekly Culture Corner
we look at early photography from the camera obscura to the Kodak Company.
