Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - July 9th, 2019

"This remarkable book hits all the sweet spots of an unforgettable classic story: big-hearted, quirky, loveable characters; life purposes that are urgent and larger than oneself; and a warm, strong, tenderly flawed family unit. Throw in the fight against capitalism, parent rights and real-life snakes living in the walls, and it adds up to a book I couldn’t stop reading. I know it is one I’ll remember for a long time."

"An enlightening, empowering memoir from an admirable woman. Melinda draws on her 20 years of philanthropy with the Gates Foundation, co-founded with her husband Bill, to give her readers concrete ways to lift and to help lift. Each chapter conveys a current issue of need, at home and in other countries. Her message is that we can all actively work together to better the world. We can use our voices and actions to help break down barriers standing in the way of change. Empower women and overall the world will benefit.


Whether you’re a Gabito fan or not, you’ll find this book to be a treasure. It is real-life storytelling at its finest. The book is a compilation of oral history told by those Gabito held dearest: fellow pranksters and drunks, family, friends, and fans. It is divided into two parts: BC (before Cien anos de soledad) and AC (after Cien anos de soledad). I found it utterly fascinating to glimpse behind the curtains into the life of this legendary literary giant, from his formative years through the years of fame.

Published: G.P. Putnam's Sons - August 14th, 2018

This is a lushly rendered and at times heart-breaking novel set in the deep marshlands of Noth Carolina in the 60's. Kya Clark is abandoned by her parents and siblings and depends on the land, her self-reliance and a few friends to help her navigate childhood to adulthood. Along the way there is a murder that she is implicated in and she also becomes a published author. A very good read.

"...you have to know we should never not tell our stories...." - Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield

In his debut novel, There There, Tommy Orange tells a story like none other, one that grabs you from the beginning and won't let go at the end. A story of alienation in your own country, of the beauty and ugliness of family, of traditions and ties and living your truth. Tommy's voice is utterly unique and wholly satisfying. Don't miss this book.
