Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue | Conversation Starters Getting the job as chauffeur to Lehman Brothers executive Clark Edwards lifted the hopes of Cameroonian immigrant Jende Jonga. With this job, he could start seeing his dreams come true. He could finally provide a better life for his wife and son. Clark Edwards and his family lived the life that everybody dreamed of – a luxurious home, material comforts, and many undreamed of privileges. The Jongas too could have this kind of life one day. But soon a financial crash takes over Lehman Brothers, sending Edwards and his chauffeur and both their families into financial trouble. Can the Jongas still look forward to their dreams being fulfilled? Can the Edwards hold on to the lavish lifestyle they were used to? Imbolo Mbue’s Behold the Dreamers, recently selected for Oprah’s Book Club picks, tells the story of dreamers and their plight as they face the inevitable consequences of the 2008 financial crash that hit America.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB 2018 SELECTION ‘Haunting... Beautifully written.’ The New York Times Book Review ‘Compelling.’ The Washington Post ‘Epic... Transcendent... Triumphant.’ Elle ‘It’s among Tayari’s many gifts that she can touch us soul to soul with her words.’ Oprah Winfrey ‘[Tayari Jones’] vision, strength, and truth-telling voice have found a new level of artistry and power.’ Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her centre. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together. This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward – with hope and pain – into the future.

When LaBelle Nambangi immigrated to America from Cameroon, one thing remained a constant among the vast cultural changes she experienced: the patriarchy. She was dismayed by the ingrained sexism present in both countries, but also inspired by the women she met on either side of the Atlantic who defied their cultures and succeeded despite the societal biases that attempted to hold them down. Women Who Soar shares the stories of these inspirational figures--leaders, entrepreneurs, visionaries, mothers, sisters--and their fight against patriarchal culture. LaBelle passionately explores how far we've come and how far we still have to go to dispel deeply ingrained sexism, whether it's through the stories we tell our children, the educational opportunities we provide, or the support we lend to one another. No matter the country, no matter the society, the battle of breaking the patriarchy is far from over. But when women band together, there's no height they can't reach.

"A grand debut novel full of characters who come into a reader's mind and heart and never leave. Stephanie Powell Watts is a writer of wondrous skill, imagination, and sensitivity, and No One Is Coming to Save Us is a beautiful testament to that." Edward P. Jones, author of The Known World JJ Ferguson has returned home to Pinewood, North Carolina, to build his dream house and to pursue his high school sweetheart, Ava. But as he re-enters his former world, where factories are in decline and the legacy of Jim Crow is still felt, he's startled to find that the people he once knew and loved have changed just as much as he has. Ava is now married and desperate for a baby, though she can't seem to carry one to term. Her husband, Henry, has grown distant, frustrated by the demise of the furniture industry, which has outsourced to China and stripped the area of jobs. Ava's mother, Sylvia, caters to and meddles with the lives of those around her, trying to fill the void left by her absent son. And Don, Sylvia's unworthy but charming husband, just won't stop hanging around. JJ's return-and his plans to build a huge mansion overlooking Pinewood and woo Ava-not only unsettles their family, but stirs up the entire town. The ostentatious wealth that JJ has attained forces everyone to consider the cards they've been dealt, what more they want and deserve, and how they might go about getting it. Can they reorient their lives to align with their wishes rather than their current realities? Or are they all already resigned to the rhythms of the particular lives they lead? "A powerful-and, in today's world, necessary-perspective on the American dream and the possibility of beginning again." Celeste Ng, author of Little Fires Everywhere
