Good Scent from a Strange Mountain by Robert Olin Butler - Wed. January 16th
Butler's Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of stories about the aftermath of the Vietnam War and its impact on the Vietnamese. Includes two subsequently published stories that complete the collection's narrative journey, returning to the jungles of Vietnam.

Lab Girl by Hope Jahren - Wed. Feb. 20th
Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Lab Girl is her revelatory treatise on plant life-but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist... And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable.

Burning Marguerite by Elizabeth Inness-Brown - Wed. March 20th
One winter morning James Jack Wright finds ninety-four-year-old Marguerite Deo-the woman he has always known as "Tante"-lying dead in the woods outside his cabin, clad only in a flowered nightgown. With this arresting scene, Elizabeth Inness-Brown ushers readers into her mysterious and lyrical narrative, the story of two closely braided lives that forces a reconsideration of our notions of maternity, loyalty, love, and perhaps death itself.

Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver - Wed. April 17th
Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factions-religious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicians-trapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world.
