Tracy Flick Can’t Wincover of Tracy Flock Can't Win
by Tom Perrotta


Available as: print book

In the follow up novel to Tom Perrota's Election, Tracy Flick is back and working as an assistant principal in suburban New Jersey.  Her ambitious drive does not match where she hoped to find herself in midlife.  When the principal retires, the opportunity for promotion lights a fire under our beloved protagonist.  Darkly comedic and with pitch-perfect parallels to our current times, Tracy Flick is shocked by the reality that this job might not easily be hers.  Whether you are a fan of the book or movie adaptation of Election starring Reese Witherspoon, Tom Perrota delivers yet another gratifying and cathartic read.


cover of The Twilight WorldThe Twilight World
by Werner Herzog


Available as: print book

Werner Herzog is an internationally recognized film maker, director, screenwriter and is regarded as a pioneer of New German Cinema with over 50 movies and documentaries to his credit.  The Twilight World is his debut novel and it is inspired by Herzog's friendship with Hiroo Onada, a former Japanese soldier.  Onada spent decades on an island in the Philippines, unaware that WW11 had ended and continuing to hold his post.  A novel that reads, much like a Herzog film, part documentary, part dream and part poem.


The Summer Placecover of The Summer Place
by Jennifer Weiner


Available as: print book, eBook & eAudio

The NYT accurately has declared Jennifer Weiner, "the undisputed boss of the beach read" and The Summer Place is a story about family in all its messy glory.  There is a wedding in the works with misunderstandings looming, secrets unfurling and confrontations unavoidable.  A celebration in all the ways that family ignites our worst sides and brings us together reminding us the way that love can surprise us and connect us.
