Do you like books that are a bit off the well-trod reader’s path?
If so, maybe the Indie Next List is for you. Indie Next is a monthly newsletter of recommendations from independent booksellers. You can find the books in your local independent bookstores, as well as right here in the Library!
This month’s Indie Next selection is On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong. “Poet Ocean Vuong’s debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling … On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is as much about the power of telling one’s own story as it is about the obliterating silence of not being heard. With stunning urgency and grace, Ocean Vuong writes of people caught between disparate worlds, and asks how we heal and rescue one another without forsaking who we are.” – Library catalog
