Having made eight different “best books of 2019” lists, Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow is definitely a must-read. Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, this incredible book by a Pulitzer-prize winner reveals the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that continue to shake our society. Salon.com calls Catch and Kill "an important, frightening book — and a propulsive read."

Ensuring the rights and opportunities for women and girls is still a huge piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there’s a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book; The Book of Gutsy Women. “If history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women,” the Clintons say. “So in the moments when the long haul seems awfully long, we hope you will draw strength from these stories. We do.” Perfect for tweens and teens, but also makes a great "storybook" to read aloud to even younger children!

“Satirical, raw, and unapologetically real, West delivers the bittersweet truths on contemporary living,” is how Kirkus Review describes The Witches Are Coming, a collection of essays by Lindy West , whose 2016 book Shrill was turned in to a series on Hulu starring SNL phenom, Aidy Bryant. Esquire says, “One of our foremost thinkers on gender unveils her unifying theory of America: that our steady diet of pop culture created by and for embittered, entitled white men has stoked our sociopolitical moment.”
