Peter Wohlleben
Available in: Print, eBook

In his bestselling book, Peter Wohlleben—a career forest ranger in Germany—presents scientific research and his own observations to make the case that trees are social beings.  Sharing his deep love of nature and the woods specifically, Wohlleben describes the processes of life, death, and regeneration to make the case for a popular reimagining of trees in contemporary society.  Using anthropomorphic language to depict the ways in which trees “count”, “learn”, and “remember” this book will surely change the way that you look at the forest forever.

Trevor Noah
Available in: Print, eBook

Trevor Noah’s unlikely path to well-known comic (he recently performed at the Beasley Coliseum) and host of the Daily Show began with an even more unlikely pairing between his white father and his black mother in South Africa during a time in which their pairing was punishable by five years in prison.   With this compelling beginning, Noah sets out to tell the story of how he struggled to find himself in often dangerously and difficult circumstances.  At turns both uproarious and extraordinary, Noah’s personal essays form an honest portrayal of a boy making his way in a dangerous time with his wit and the unflinching love of his mother.  

Anna Kendrick
Available in: Print

Anna Kendrick, better known for her roles in movies such as Up in the Air, Into the Woods, and Pitch Perfect, invites readers into her life, sharing her experiences in this witty and frank memoir.  Writing with both wit and candor, she recounts the events in her life—from the charmingly ordinary to the absurd—while sprinkling in her wry observations with razor sharp wit.
