The Wednesday book schedule is as follows:

November 14, 2018 - Little Fires Everywhere, by Celeste Ng (Fiction) - NY Times Bestseller, Book of the Year by various publications. (352 pages)  Explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

January 9, 2019 - The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt (Fiction) - Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (771 pages)  A beautifully written coming-of-age novel with exquisitely drawn characters that follows a grieving boy's entanglement with a small famous painting that has eluded destruction, a book that stimulates the mind and touches the heart.

February 13, 2019 - Sing, Unburied, Sing, A Novel by Jesmyn Ward (Fiction) - Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction, NY Times Top 10 of 2017 (320 pages)  This road novel is a slender epic of three generations and the ghosts that haunt them as well as a portrait of what ordinary folk in dire circumstances cleave to as well as what they are trying to outrun.

March 13, 2019 - Lilac Girls, by Martha Hall Kelly (Historical Fiction, Women’s Fiction) - NY Times Bestseller (512 pages)  Inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this debut novel reveals a story of love, redemption, and secrets that were hidden for decades.

May 8, 2019 - The Woman in the Window, by A.J. Finn (Thriller) - NY Times Bestseller (448 pages)  What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

June 12, 2019 - Best. State. Ever: A Florida Man Defends His Homeland, by Dave Barry (Humor) - NY Times Bestseller (240 pages)  A brilliantly funny exploration of the Sunshine State from the man who knows it best.        (Alternate: A Man Called Ove, by Frederick Backman)
