Did You Hear about Kitty Karr? by Crystal Smith Paul

Staff Pick

This novel is a slow-burn about the secrets Hollywood keeps and the story it tells about itself, and Paul keeps her subject's feet to the fire with a biting critique of how the silver screen embraced racism during the Golden Age. Written to bait the studios, the narrative rises to end with a resounding battle cry.

Corruption! Charisma! Con Artist!  Plus some not-so-subtle critiques about imperialism, post-colonial West Africa, and the weird ways of international banking. This fascinating page turner has it all! A great read about an unbelievable, yet somehow not surprising, bit of modern history.

How to Love Your Daughter by Hila Bloom

Staff Pick

How To Love Your Daughter should be immediately added to the cannon of literature about the complex emotions of mothering.  While the snapshot chapters are short, the descriptions of the pain that often comes with unconditional love loom large.  This is a read worth savoring--again and again.
