Science fiction has quite the ability to capture our attention. It inspires us to think deeply about the world’s vast possibilities – both present and future. These fascinating stories on the surface seem profoundly different than our reality. However, when you truly think about the complexity and fragility of life, these once implausible stories become hauntingly relatable. I’ve been diving deep into the world of science fiction this summer and have been absolutely captivated. Here are three science fiction novels that I recommend you read.
Harrowing and unpredictable, Paper World is a page-turning novel like no-other. Beautifully written by author Maureen Cummins, it is the story of a girl who finds herself lost down a rabbit hole – trying to retrace her steps and find her way back to the surface. Will she climb and catch her breath again? Or will her paper world rip to shreds beneath her feet?
In this must-read memoir, acclaimed actress Mimi Kennedy reveals the complex and inescapable forces that pushed her onto the stage – even as a child. She writes with tremendous vulnerability, wit, and humor that captures your attention and gently touches your heart. Whether you are an actor, a theatre lover, or simply are interested in a deeply human story with familiar truths, then this is the book for you.
Join us in celebrating Earth Day through the written word. We believe literature has the power to inspire change and spark meaningful conversations. Independent authors, in particular, have a unique perspective on environmental issues and a passion for storytelling that can engage and motivate readers to form new habits, think differently, and take action.
It’s National Poetry Month and with “Mapping Home” we get to ask ourselves: What makes a home? Savita Krishnamoorthy and her son Arjun Nagamangalam created a poetry book that mirrors a call and response, a dialogue between time, space, and culture that captures the lens of what manifests from migration from India to the United States.
Laurie Benson provides a workbook that invites us to examine our cultural and societal relationship with feminine energy.
James Lawler’s novel, In the Twinkling of an Eye, takes readers on a heart pounding, thrilling journey. I always say that writers write what they know. This espionage thriller fits right into that statement. Filled with several compelling themes, the novel focuses on a Russian-North Korean conspiracy to develop a devastating biological weapon for assassination, terror, and genocide. James Lawler, the author, is a senior CIA operations officer who has spent his career battling the spread of weapons of mass destruction.
Koen Blanquart’s new book, The Suitcase Office, is an essential read for every working professional in 2022 and beyond. Intensely relevant, the book demonstrates how companies and managers can set up their operations to ensure everything is managed efficiently and effectively, even in a transnational context.
Today’s Book of the Day is Travel Now Kids, and I absolutely loved this story. There are so many books that share the wonders of travel – but few share it in a context that children will understand and appreciate. Children need to understand the value and beauty of travel, and this book allows them to do just that.
