2015 Newbery Medal Winner, just published March 17, 2015! For ages 9 - 12, The Crossover by Kwame Alexander.

Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral by Mary Doria Russell. From the bestselling, award-winning author of Doc, comes a richly detailed novel of the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the making of the mythology that surrounds it to this day. Great! new [3/22/15] review in The Seattle Times. Chosen for IndieNext.

The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade follows an old couple on what might be their last journey: Hunting for memories of a son they think they had, in Arthurian England - a land covered with memory-shrouding mists.... We are the lucky recipients of a few signed first editions! Available to you while they last!

A Dangerous Place: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear. A new Maisie Dobbs novel! [woohoo!]

The Painter by Peter Heller. Now in paperback. Staff favorite. His previous book, The Dog Stars is also one of our favorites. Read them both. Seriously. Completely different and both so so good!

Breaking news!  The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library announces the 2015 featured work, AKA, Seattle Reads 2015! The Painter by Peter Heller!
Peter Heller will visit Seattle May 14-17, 2015. See the schedule of events with the author, here.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson. From the bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction comes the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania.
It is a story that many of us think we know but don’t, and Larson tells it thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era. One of the "Most Anticipated Books of Spring" chosen by Publisher's Weekly. Chosen for IndieNext.  New [3/1/2015] review in The Seattle Times.
And, even more importantly, Ron thinks it's his best book to date!

The Goldfinch: A Novel by Donna Tartt. The 2014 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Fiction, coming in paperback April 7, 2015!


And even more sneak peaks! Mary Ann Gwinn chooses 30 books for spring reading! Spring used to be a quiet time for publishing, but not anymore; there are plenty of meaty reads coming out between now and July 1. Read her [3/22/15] new LitLife column here.

We will do our best to have these books in as soon as they are published -- let us know if you would like us to hold one for you -- that way you know for sure we'll have one, [just for you!] on the very day it is published!
