At long last, happy spring, everyone! Sun shining, birds chirping, trees budding -- it's time to celebrate the balmy 60� weather we've been having. And this month we've got a great variety of recommendations to help you with that, from George Packer's exploration of the New America to Anne Carson's genre-crossing Red Doc>.

--Chicago Tribune
The summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer arts camp become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains strong, but much else has changed. Meg Wolitzer follows these characters from youth through middle age, as talents and fortunes diverge.

Behind the Beautiful Forevers:
Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity
by Katherine Boo

"With a keen eye for the narrative, Boo is a tireless pursuer of understanding and a challenger of generalizations. This book changed how I think about storytelling and the power it has to humanize injustices made banal by statistics." --Sarah S., Harvard Book Store

A Novel

April Spotlight on Poetry:  
Red Doc> 
by Anne Carson

"Autobiography of Red and Red Doc> can be read together, or apart. The latter certainly serves as a sequel of sorts, but the strange, elliptical narrative also bends into something else altogether. It stands on its own-and takes the reader on a singular journey of longing and grief." --San Francisco Chronicle
