It’s the official start of Fall and with the season comes some BIG BOOKS (in addition to The Lost Symbol, of course). Here are a few titles we are excited about:
- A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore. In this novel, Moore turns her eye on the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, the insidiousness of racism, the blind-sidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love. Available as an eBook from Knopf and audiobook from BBC Audiobooks America.
- The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DiCamillo. Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo—author of The Tale of Despereaux and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane—in this take evokes the largest of themes: hope and belonging, desire and compassion, with the lightness of a magician’s touch. Available as an eBook from Candlewick Press.
- True Compass by Edward M. Kennedy. In this landmark autobiography, five years in the making, Senator Edward M. Kennedy tells his extraordinary personal story—of his legendary family, politics, and 50 years at the center of national events. Available as an audiobook from BBC Audiobooks America.

- The Murder of King Tut: The Plot to Kill the Child King – A Nonfiction Thriller by James Patterson, Martin Dugard and Joe Barret. A nonfiction title in which Patterson and company use X-rays, forensic files, and ancient stories to construct their own version of the life and death of the mysterious boy king. Available as an eBook from Hachette and audiobook from BBC Audiobooks America.
