Week of June 15, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of June 15th include THE GUARDIANS, a legal thriller from John Grisham but with a twist --- as a man who was convicted of murdering his lawyer but maintains his innocence turns to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system; ORDINARY GIRLS, a searing memoir from Jaquira Díaz, who writes fiercely and eloquently of her challenging girlhood and triumphant coming of age; THE LAST TRAIN TO LONDON by Meg Waite Clayton, a pre-World War II-era story centering on the Kindertransports that carried thousands of children out of Nazi-occupied Europe --- and one brave woman who helped them escape to safety; and Clay Risen's THE CROWDED HOUR, the dramatic story of the most famous regiment in American history --- the Rough Riders, a motley group of soldiers led by Theodore Roosevelt, whose daring exploits marked the beginning of American imperialism in the 20th century.
