STAFF PICKS

Blood at the Root should be required reading. It is a beautifully written, straightforward, and striking account of a turbulent time in American history. Author Patrick Phillips grew up in Forsyth County, Georgia, which was an “all white” community until the late 1990’s. Sifting through decades of news, propaganda, urban myth and family stories to find the truth, Phillips focuses on the pivotal events, people, and circumstances which resulted in the massive racial cleansing of 1912. Inserting himself into the story offers a brilliant way to draw the rest of us in as well. We are all implicated, we can all make a difference, and Blood at the Root’s lessons are almost unbearably timely. Yet this hardly touches on the complexities and rewards of this stunning book. I hope you will read it, and pass it on. -Sara, Atlanta
 
 
 
 
Ben Mezrich is one of my favorite authors but when I saw his latest book was going to cover UFOs I admit I was skeptical. But once I started reading The 37th Parallel I didn't want to stop until I reached the end of this fast paced adventure. You probably won't come away from this book believing in little green men but it will definitely make you think twice before laughing off your local TV channel's investigation of recent cattle mutilations. -Justin, Atlanta

READ of the MONTH

Elon Musk is one of the most intriguing and influential entrepreneurs in the world today. The mythology that is building around him and his current companies, Tesla, Space X, and SolarCity rivals coverage of Steve Jobs, and brings renewed excitement to the tech industry. When Stephen Colbert can ask Mr. Musk, “Are you a superhero, or a supervillain?” you know you’re dealing with a compelling subject. In this first major biography of Musk, Ashlee Vance offers fascinating insight into both the man and his work. I’m leaning towards superhero, but read the book and decide for yourself! -Sara, Atlanta
