Fantastic Beasts Script Book Cover (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending November 20, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1 in Children’s Fiction Series) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling: “When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…” (November 2016)

(Debuted at #2 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Our Revolution by Bernie Sanders: “In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all—and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on.” (November 2016)

(Debuted at #4 in Hardcover Fiction) Swing Time by Zadie Smith: “Two brown girls dream of being dancers—but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.” (November 2016)
