A Piece of the World

Christina Baker Kline

To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family’s remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the twentieth century.

The Underground Railroad

Colson Whitehead

From prize-winning bestselling author Colson Whitehead a magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave's adventure as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

The One in a Million Boy

Monica Wood

The incandescent story of a 104-year-old woman and the sweet, strange young boy assigned to help her around the house — a friendship that touches each member of the boy’s unmoored family.
