Library Book Bag - New Titles for your Book Club


Hello Joan, 
Please find below a list of new Book Club in a Bag titles that your club may be interested in reading:

The Nest by Cythia D'Aprix Sweeney
A warm, funny and acutely perceptive debut novel about four adult siblings and the fate of the shared inheritance that has shaped their choices and their lives.

The Widow by Fiona Barton donated by Text in the City Book Club
For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, an electrifying thriller that will take you into the dark spaces that exist between a husband and a wife.

The Piano Maker by Kurt Palka donated by Text in the City Book ClubThe suspenseful, emotionally resonant, and utterly compelling story of what brings an enigmatic French woman to a small Canadian town in the 1930s, a woman who has found depths of strength in dark times and comes to discover sanctuary at last.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman donated by the Revolving Door Book ClubLocked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.

Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.

If you are interested in reserving any of these great new titles for your club, please call or email me. Also, watch for more new titles coming this fall!
Thanks
Helen
