A new month means new books! These are the upcoming releases that we are excited about for March 2020:
The Glass Hotel ~ Emily St. John Mandel (Release Date March 24, 2020)
I adored Station Eleven, a previous novel by the author. In that novel, she incorporated beautiful prose and sensitive character exploration into a post-apocalyptic setting typically reserved for pulp-y genre fiction. I cannot wait to see what she does in this book, which apparently involves a Ponzi scheme and ghosts.
The Story of More ~ Hope Jahren (Release Date March 2, 2020)
I loved Lab Girl, the author’s memoir about her life in science. She is a terrific writer, and the memoir was filled with beautiful prose and page-turning, moving passages. So when I got an email a few days ago informing me that Jahren was releasing a new book about climate change, I was immediately on board. I don’t know much about the subject, and she’s the author I want telling me all about it.
The Mirror & the Light ~ Hilary Mantel (Release Date March 10, 2020)
This historical fiction set in the court of King Henry VIII, The Mirror & The Light concludes Mantel’s multi-award winning Wolf Hall trilogy. I’ve been looking for more high-quality historical fiction and this seems sure to deliver.
