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

All the Birds in the Sky reads like an instant classic. It soars through magic and science, good and evil and all the shades in-between; through the struggles of children against clueless parents, teachers, and spiteful kids, and the struggles of adults against a heedless society, with a love story at its heart. All the Birds explores big questions: What is really important? How are we all connected? Yet the book comes in at a weightless (and witty) 300 pages that simply fly by. I hope it takes off the way it deserves. -Sara, Atlanta
