“In this gripping, character-driven thriller, a shocking crime rocks a small Massachusetts town and one family in particular, forcing an assistant district attorney to choose between his sworn duty to uphold justice and his unconditional love for his son.

Based on the 2012 New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, this limited drama series stars Chris Evans, Michelle Dockery, Jaeden Martell, Cherry Jones, Pablo Schreiber, Sakina Jaffrey, Betty Gabriel, and J.K. Simmons.”

We have a trailer for Defending Jacob!


“Our list of books to read in March, which includes a combination of fiction and nonfiction from smaller and larger publishers, was designed to both educate and comfort: There are books about facing mortality and handling sudden grief, navigating social networks, and exploring video games that intentionally move away from the masculine approach to both designing and playing them. As always, we hope these books provide solace during a difficult season.”

That last cover is AMAZING!


“And there’s plenty of reads coming out this spring that we’re excited about by Black authors.

From poetry collections to cultural essays to a Marvel adaption, our list includes it all. Check out the nine books we’ve added to our bookshelves.”

Perfect for choosing your spring reads!
