Ninth Street Women by Mary Gabriel

Reading this book feels like a vindication; long overlooked, the women of abstract expressionism are revealed not just as muses and supporting players, but the founders of a movement. Don't let the size intimidate you; Gabriel's use of interviews and firsthand accounts takes what could be a dense tome down to a personal scale that feels intimate to read despite its scope. - Katherine

American Overdose by Chris McGreal

The opioid crisis has recently received considerable coverage in the media nation-wide. However, it is not in any way, a new phenomenon, and for years, a great effort was expended to obscure its severity. McGreal’s investigative journalism reads like true crime and the story he tells is tragic, common, and ongoing. - Jade

Maid by Stephanie Land

The way this country reviles people in need of government assistance has always appalled me. As a child of parents who have, at one time or another been those people, Maid resonated. Land thoughtfully recounts her experiences being a working mom with no support and abusive partners, proving yet again how this country is built on the backs of the invisible and ignored. - Karena

The Ornament of the World by Maria Rosa Menocal

Countering the assumption of the Middle Ages as stagnant and prejudiced, Menocal explores the diverse, flourishing world of Muslim Spain. I was fascinated by the cultural exchange between Muslims, Christians, and Jews that nourished such unique art, poetry, philosophy, and architecture. Beautiful history writing with a hopeful message. - Clara

Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall

The masterful art and writing of Caldecott Medal winner Sophie Blackall makes Hello Lighthouse a delight all the way through. Imagining the life of a keeper of a lighthouse, we tend the light, trim the wick, and write letters to a distant wife—who arrives then by ship! Brimming with seaside joy, foggy warnings, and even a shipwreck, this picture book is one I would have loved dearly as a child and do as an adult. One of my favorite books of the year. Ages 3–7. - Tera

Otis and Will Discover the Deep written by Barb Rosenstock illustrated by Katherine Roy

Two inquisitive and determined scientist-adventurers carve a path to the depths of the ocean in this true story of the invention of the bathysphere. The water pressure at 7 miles deep makes observation all but impossible, but in 1930 Otis and Will conducted a series of precarious dives and unlikely engineering that resulted in the first vision of hidden depths. Gorgeous panoramic illustrations and edge-of-your-seat storytelling make this a truly fun ride for young adventurers. Ages 5–8. - Tera

Winnie's Great War written by Lindsay Mattick & Josh Greenhut; illustrated by Sophie Blackall

Winnie-the-Pooh was based on a real bear (as many of us know), but this version of her story is unspeakably charming and deftly retold. Winnie is rescued after her mother dies, and is brought up by a thoughtful boy, then by a veterinarian who takes care of the horses being transported to wartime Europe. Sensitive Winnie wants nothing but to make everyone around her laugh at her antics. We can’t help but feel and hope for her safe return to the woods of Canada. Like Charlotte’s Web or Bambi, this read-aloud book will enchant and transport every listener. Grades 3–6. - Tera

A Life in Pattern by Orla Kiely

Known for her distinct graphic style and charming color palettes, Orla Kiely truly has lived a life in pattern. In this, her third publication, we get a fascinating look into her career in fashion and home design, starting with her ever-popular “stem” design that she made right in her apartment living room back in 1995. A fine book for those inspired by graphic design or the recent history of female entrepreneurship. - Megan

Ninth Street Women by Mary Gabriel

Mary Gabriel set out to illuminate the lives and legacies of five female American artists who changed history while being overlooked by it, and through these women brings viscerally to life a New York–centered world of the last century. The relationships, famous names, wars, social movements, and above all, the art in Ninth Street Women will leave you inspired, looking up paintings, and holding onto the names Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, and Mary Gabriel. - Jocelyn

In Pieces by Sally Field

Unlike some celebrity memoirs that focus on art and fame, actress Sally Field’s memoir is much more personal, and includes her life before she was famous. She reveals that as a child, she was sexually abused by her stepfather and talks about how that shaped her decisions regarding her partnerships, which roles she took, and even how she mothered. As an artist, she was drawn to the roles that “spoke of outrage,” but in writing her memoir, you can feel the connection that Field has found with herself. - S.M.C.
