Create Dangerously by Edwidge Danticat

Written by the bestselling Haitian-American author (Breath, Eyes, Memory), Create Dangerously is a powerful presentation of the ability of writing and art to offer strength, healing, and redemption in the face of conflict and upheaval. Dave Eggers calls it “The most powerful book I've read in years. . . . A call to arms for all immigrants, all artists, all those who choose to bear witness, and all those who choose to listen. Though it describes great upheaval, tragedy, and injustice, it's full of humor, warmth, grace, and light.”

When Parents Text by Lauren Kaelin & Sophia Fraioli

NPR notes, “The average teen is sending thousands of texts per month, and hilarity and awkwardness ensue when parents try bridging that technology gap with their own texts.” Here then is a collection of insanely funny texts between parents and kids, compiled by the popular website “An addictive and side-splitting read . . .  the underlying relationship between parent and teen is simultaneously touching and hysterical. A total moment-in-time classic. Enthusiastically recommended.” —Library Journal, starred review

The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz

The abundance of options we face in all aspects of life may have significant negative consequences, including decreased satisfaction with the choices we do eventually make. Our culture may equate more choice with greater freedom, but do we really benefit from having to constantly navigate an endless sea of possibilities, just to do something as simple as buy toothpaste?
