August 2018: Great Reads for Hot Nights

Still looking for a good book to help beat the August heat?  Check out these three amazing titles that transport readers!  Madeline Miller's Circe is a blisteringly modern superwoman drawn from ancient myth. Jamie Ford's Love and Other Consolation Prizes shines light on a fascinating and tragic bit of forgotten history.  And Crystal Wilkinson's The Birds of Opulence illuminates a bucolic southern black township, and several generations of women who have vexing relationships with the land, one another, and the fight to survive.  Be sure to check out Wiley Cash's Open Canon Book Club (featuring The Birds of Opulence in September), where readers from across the country will gather in virtual discussion! Stay cool... and let us know what you're reading!
