"Fierce, feminist, and packed with funny anecdotes" is how Entertainment Weekly describes Dear Girls, the new book by comedian/writer/actress Ali Wong! Her sharp, humorous insights are even more personal in this collection. Though addressed to her daughters, Dear Girls provides every reader with wisdom, inspiration, and something to laugh at. Vogue says "Dear Girls is not so much a real-talk handbook as it is a myth-puncturing manifesto."

Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford’s campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral. It was viewed by eleven million people in just four days, and soon after read aloud on the floor of Congress. It also inspired changes in California law, as well as the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time.

"Coates brings his considerable talent for racial and social analysis to his debut novel, which captures the brutality of slavery and explores the underlying truth that slaveholders could not dehumanize the enslaved without also dehumanizing themselves. Beautifully written, this is a deeply and soulfully imagined look at slavery and human aspirations." This is how Booklist reviews The Water Dancer, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Recently added to Oprah's Book Club list for 2019, Publishers Weekly describes Coates' debut novel as having "prose that sings and imagination that soars."
