Emma by Jane Austen
Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death with one of her most revered novels.
“Beautiful, clever, rich—and single—Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protégée Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen’s most flawless work.” (Amazon.com)

Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller (memoir)
“A classic is born in this tender, intensely moving and even delightful journey through a white African girl’s childhood. Born in England and now living in Wyoming, Fuller was conceived and bred on African soil during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five “learn[ed] how to load an FN rifle magazine, strip and clean all the guns in the house, and ultimately, shoot-to-kill.” Fuller’s remarkable affection for her parents (who are racists) and her homeland (brutal under white and black rule) shines through.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
