Lady Banks Pick of the Week


Read This Now: The Index

What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!

Browse the whole list!


One Person, No Vote by Carol AndersonThis is the book every voter needs to read before the 2018 midterm elections. It's important to know the past so we can change the future. One Person, No Vote is horrifying in its explicit, thorough, and well-researched documentation of voter suppression from 1865 to the present. Highly recommend.

One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson ($27.00*, Bloomsbury Publishing), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.
