Backlash to progress…
White Rage
In this critically-acclaimed and award-winning book, Anderson demonstrates how backlashes against racial progress have shaped our history and politics. From the Civil War to the KKK to modern-day police brutality, this work is unfortunately just as relevant to America’s present as it is to its past.

Expand your mind with author Yuval Noah Harari’s new classic. Harari dives deep and waxes philosophical about many of the large problems that plague us today. Whether you agree with his takes isn’t really the point; his well-considered, thoughtful arguments will give you a different perspective on all these problems than we get from headlines and 30-second news clips.

Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s collaboration is a cult classic for a reason. It’s an absurdly funny commentary on good vs. evil, nature vs. nurture, and the true nature of free choice. If you’re a fan of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and haven’t read “Good Omens,” you’ll definitely want to pick it up, especially now that an Amazon adaptation starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen has been released.

Arguably the best mystery story ever written. Ten people — all strangers — are lured to a mansion on a private island. Each person has a criminal history. They share their secrets, and one by one, they die.

Set in post-WWII Europe, “The Alice Network” brings together two women from different generations and backgrounds. With espionage, scandal, redemption, and rage-provoking examples of at least five ‘isms,’ the story has a bingability score equivalent to “Game of Thrones: Season One.” In other words, get ready to stay up all night reading and feel all the feelings.
