Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

A horrible act of violence occurs at the Pirriwee Public School’s trivia night fundraiser for parents, but what happened and who was involved?

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

In 18th-century West Africa two half-sisters and their families fates could not be more different. Effia, becomes the mistress of a British slave-trader, and Esi, survives the Middle Passage only to live out her days in bondage on an American plantation.

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
Memoir
Join us on October 8 at 7 p.m.

Noah illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a moving and searingly funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother’s unconditional love. "Born a Crime" is the 2018 Salina Reads selection.

Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart
Mystery
Join us on November 12 at 7 p.m.

Three sisters take the law into their own hands in this fast-paced, darkly humorous caper set in 1914 New Jersey. When local factory owner Henry Kaufman’s motorcar strikes their buggy, the Kopp siblings sue for damages. When that fails, they band together to make Kaufman pay. Pistol-packing Constance, pigeon fancier Norma, and whimsical Fleurette make an oddball trio, but they get results.

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain
Historical Fiction
Join us on December 10 at 7 p.m.

A fascinating portrayal of Beryl Markham, a complex and strong-willed woman who fought to make her way in the world on her terms. McLain paints a captivating portrait of Africa in the 1920s and the life of expats making their home there.
