Across the Endless River by Thad Carhart: “This first novel by the nationally bestelling author of The Piano Shop on the Left Bank re-imagines the life of Jean-Baptiste Charbonneau, the mixed-race son of Sacagawea and a French trapper on the Lewis & Clark expedition.” (October 13th)

A Skeptic’s Guide to Writers’ Houses by Anne Trubek: “There are many ways to show our devotion to an author besides reading his or her works. Graves make for popular pilgrimage sites, but far more popular are writers’ house museums. What is it we hope to accomplish by trekking to the home of a dead author? In this book Anne Trubek takes a vexed, often funny, and always thoughtful tour of a goodly number of house museums across the nation.” (October 30th)

After the Falls by Cathy McClure Gildiner: “In this memoir of the ’60s, find out why Cathy was arrested, set a three alarm fire at her first job, and investigated by the FBI — not to mention the family troubles.” (November 1st)
