Staff Picks

Here is some of what our staff has read this month.

Helene recommends Paper Trails: True Stories of Confusion, Mindless Violence, and Forbidden Desires, A Surprising Number of Which Are Not About Marriage by Pete Dexter. A collection of Pete Dexter's newspaper columns on life, death, and everything in between.

Maureen enjoyed Mare's War by Tanita Davis. Two teenagers reluctantly join their grandmother on a cross country road trip and find themselves entranced by her stories about serving in the African American regiment of the Women's Army Corps during World War 2.

Nyssa recommends Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. Two Chinese sisters are sold into marriage to American husbands to settle their father's debts. Through it all their bond as sisters sustains them.
