Richael Best – Publicity & Marketing

“I’m currently reading Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta. Would also recommend A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin for summer reading. Looking forward to reading There There by Tommy Orange.”

 

Bryce de Flamand – Design

“I’m looking forward to reading Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton this summer. There has been a lot of buzz around this new thriller, and it sounds like the perfect summer read with a mix of intrigue, mystery, and all the glamour of New York City.”

 

Jenny Abrami – Sales & Little Bigfoot Publisher

The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog by Adam Gidwitz, illustrated by Hatem Aly. “An ideal mix of fantasy, fun, and friendship for summer vacation reading.”

Beloved Dog by Maira Kalman

Your Art Will Save Your Life by Beth Pickens

Whitney Berger – Publicity & Marketing

Circe by Madeline Miller. “I love Greek mythology and strong female characters.”

 

Nikki Sprinkle – Publicity & Marketing

Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood. “I was particularly excited to read a memoir by an accomplished poet. Would her poetic voice heighten or overwhelm the narrative? Also, a look into the life of growing up with a father as a priest when you’re an outspoken writer who can be very critical of religion intrigued me.”

 

Tony Ong – Design  

Istanbul: Memories and the City by Orhan Pamuk

 

Halee Reeves – Sales and Marketing

“I’m currently reading The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian. I love a good murder mystery, especially one with international-travel flair. I’m also looking forward to reading The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and The Bettencourt Affair by Tom Sancton, Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys, and Michelle Obama: A Life by Peter Slevin.”

 

Daniel Germain – Editorial

“I don’t know why, but for some reason when I think “beach reads” I immediately turn to classic fantasy/sci-fi. A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin, Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke, and Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein; I can remember gobbling up those titles over long, lazy afternoons on breaks from school. There’s something exhilarating about getting lost in a story about a faraway place (or future) and lifting your head up, snapping back to earth, and jumping into the water on a beautiful summer day.”
