A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood 

It is the world of the near future and Offred is a Handmaid in the home of the Commander and his wife. She is allowed out once a day to the food market, is not permitted to read and is hoping the Commander makes her pregnant because she is only valued if her ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she was an independent woman, had a job of her own, a husband and a child. But all of this is gone now...everything has changed. 


March 19

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

To what extent did Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Maric, contribute to his groundbreaking theories? That question lies at the heart of this novel, narrated by Mileva. Due to a congenital physical defect, and her being a Serb, which generates local prejudice, Mileva feels she must prove herself academically in a class of five men, including Albert.


April 16

River of Doubt by Candice Millard

At once an incredible narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth, a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world.  


May 21

A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline

From the New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train comes a stunning, atmospheric novel of friendship, passion and art inspired by Andrew Wyeth's mysterious and iconic painting, Christina's World, one of the best known American paintings of the twentieth century. Christina Olson's yearning, her determination and her will to dream occupy the emotional center in both the novel and the painting.
