March Staff Picks

Empire Falls by Richard Russo
"Forget Hillbilly Elegy; read Empire Falls. These characters are your neighbors, whether you're from Riverside or a small town in the Midwest... how much better to know them through the brilliant, seductive prose of this Pulitzer Prize winning novel." - Linda

Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough (out March 6th)
"No words I write could do this book justice. Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi's true story is made visceral, her voice clear in the poetry of her narration... This book carries a power and grace the likes of which you don't see often in young adult lit." - Destenie

Islandborn by Junot Diaz (out March 13th)
Diaz's debut picture book tells the story of Lola, who's told to draw where she's from for school... except she doesn't remember The Island where she was born. It takes help from family and friends for Lola to reconnect with her past. Gorgeous illustrations and a beautiful story!
