Love love love this book!  This well composed mystery is like a symphony in several movements.  It's also a realistic representation of the unique challenges facing classical musicians of color.

The Evening Hero, by Marie Myung-Ok Lee

Staff Pick

Just as twilight sits between day and night, this book and its main character occupy the space between peace and war, parent and child, truth and lies, and life and death. That's a lot to fit into a few hundred pages, but Lee does it with a complex story that will linger longer than the evening light.

They Want to Kill Americans, by Malcolm Nance

Staff Pick

This book is a compelling, albeit terrifying, primer on the cast of characters and groups involved in domestic terrorism--from Q-Anon to neo-Nazis to white nationalists.  Some names you know all too well. Some will be new. As Nance warns, however, we haven't heard the last from any of them yet.
