The near eradication of the beaver in Europe and North America has had profound implications for the environment that are finally being recognized. Goldfarb reports on the alliance of scientists, environmentalists, ranchers, and concerned citizens organizing to restoring beaver populations in an effort to solve a host of environmental problems their absence exasperated. Read this book and you will look at our contemporary landscapes in an entirely new way and you may become a Beaver Believer too.

How do you write poetry when the language you’re supposed to write in excludes you? How do you find your voice when at least some of the world denies you even exist? In feeld, Charles invades these questions by building an alternative English, one closer to the overt grammatical chaos of Middle English, that allows for a different kind of exploration into how we make languaged-meaning from who we are as people.

Don't be fooled - this book is about seaweed but it's really about the whole Gulf of Maine ecosystem - the plants and animals that make it up and the people and corporations who farm, protect, fish, conserve and love this extraordinary and increasingly threatened habitat. And a special bonus - the author will be speaking at PSB on October 9.

The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it. But when his father and three older sons in line for the throne are killed in an "accident," he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving heir. A compelling character in a fascinating fantasy world!

One part sexy rogue’s tale, one part intellectual exploration of the nature of history, one part examination of how people are marginalized by the powerful, all wrapped up in a tale of frustrated love and surveillance, this wild novel wriggles through genres, tones, and themes like a Dickensian pickpocket disappearing into a crowded London street. You won’t read anything like it this year. One of my favorite books of 2018.

This novel moves between two timelines: a current-day historian is putting together an exhibit at a Long Island house museum (which seems to have a friendly but persistent resident ghost), while during the French and Indian War, a farm family plays host to a captured soldier. Delightfully satisfying romances in both timelines, plus a well-handled discussion of Northern slavery in the 1700s.

Luisa is visited by her teen-aged self and the resulting interactions are just as messy and complicated as you might think. Carole Maurel's gestural illustrations and limited palette captures the emotional nuance of such a meeting, while her careful pacing beautifully chronicles the shifting relationship one has with oneself. An exploration of career, sexuality, and family.

In this follow up to My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness, the author struggles to break loose from her family's house and establish some sort of independence. Nagata's sometimes frenzied lines capture the internal stress of depression and loneliness and how they can take over your world. An important look at depression and the role of self-esteem that is both honest and accessible.
