“‘The Wild Trees’ by Richard Preston. Get lost in the ancient redwoods of Northern California in this captivating story as young, extreme climbers, some who are biology students, literally leap into the undiscovered canopy of old growth forests and begin the first ever scientific studies of this enchanted ecosystem. Gripping!” — Kathryn, Canio’s Books

“‘The Moment of Lift’ by Melinda Gates. A terrific read! Melinda Gates opens up about her personal journey from private citizen to public advocate. She shares insights about her childhood, a career as one of very few women in tech, her marriage to Bill Gates, raising kids, and embarking on a mission of philanthropy, largely focused on gender equality. Written in authentic voice and for all the right reasons this book is an engaging, inspiring, and enlightening memoir.” — Carolyn, BookHampton

“‘Heels of Steel’ is a novel about the queen of New York construction by ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Barbara Kavovit. The semi-autobiographical novel offers an account of a woman who owns and runs her own construction company. This book is what you need to learn in order to survive and succeed in an all-boys world. Playing in a man’s world is tough enough, but when you enter the world of construction in NYC, you really need ‘Heels of Steel’—strength, fortitude and never take ‘no’ for an answer! Bravo Barbara!” — Jane, Bedside Reading

“‘The Gifted School’ by Bruce Holsinger. For fans of ‘Big Little Lies’ comes a story about the abrasive love that parents have for their children when it comes to questions of talent, potential, and privilege.” — Christine, Southampton Books and Sag Harbor Books
