Unicorns Goblins (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 6, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #8 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Immortal Irishman by Timothy Egan: “The Irish-American story, with all its twists and triumphs, is told through the improbable life of one man. A dashing young orator during the Great Famine of the 1840s, in which a million of his Irish countrymen died, Thomas Francis Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony. He escaped and six months later was heralded in the streets of New York — the revolutionary hero, back from the dead, at the dawn of the great Irish immigration to America.” (March 2016)

(Debuted at #13 in Hardcover Fiction) The Ancient Minstrel by Jim Harrison: “In The Ancient Minstrel, Harrison delivers three novellas that highlight his phenomenal range as a writer, shot through with his trademark wit and keen insight into the human condition.” (March 2016)

(Debuted at #15 in Early & Middle Grade Readers) Unicorn vs. Goblins by Dana Simpson: “All of our old friends are back—Phoebe’s part-time ‘frenemy’ Dakota, upon whom Marigold has bestowed sentient hair, Phoebe’s goofy parents, and even Lord Splendid Humility (but please, ignore his magnificence if you can)! Have fun as Phoebe and Marigold continue the ‘Phoebegold Detective Agency,’ spend a week at Wolfgang Music Camp, and find themselves in more misadventures, thanks to Marigold’s enchanted sparkles! ” (February 2016)
