We Keep The Dead Close by Becky Cooper

A Murder at Harvard and a Half Century of Silence // In 1969, Jane Britton, a Harvard graduate, was found dead in her Cambridge, Massachusetts apartment. Forty years later, our story follows Becky Cooper and her investigation into the rumors of what happened to Jane. We Keep the Dead Close is a memoir of mirrors, misogyny, and murder.

The Woman Who Stole Vermeer by Anthony M. Amore

The True Story of Rose Dugdale and the Russborough House Art Heist // In the world of crime, there exists an unusual commonality between those who steal art and those who repeatedly kill: they are almost exclusively male. But, as with all things, there is always an outlier—outlier is Rose Dugdale. Her life of crime and activism is at turns unbelievable and awe-inspiring, and sure to engross readers.

What We Didn’t Expect by Melody Schreiber

Personal Stories about Premature Birth // Until now there hasn’t been a book that has collected personal experiences from people who have parented, cared for, or have been premature babies. Everything from life-changing tests of faith to navigating the red tape of healthcare bureaucracy; from overcoming unimaginable grief to surviving and thriving against all odds.

Sitting Pretty by Rebekah Taussig

The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body // Writing about the rhythms and textures of what it means to live in a body that doesn’t fit, Rebekah reflects on everything from the complications of kindness and charity, living both independently and dependently, experiencing intimacy, and how the pervasiveness of ableism in our everyday media directly translates to everyday life.
