DavidSedaris_EBook.jpg   Calypso
David Sedaris


If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting with Calypso. You'd be wrong. When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself.

Blue Collar Comedy star Bill Engvall is just a guy. He's been one his whole life. He can't help it; he was born that way. And that makes him an expert on the subject. For the record, here's the official definition of a guy: a person who doesn't think before he speaks. He can't. He's not that deep. Because a guy has only three basic needs: eating, sleeping, and sex. That's it. Just a Guy chronicles a lifetime in pursuit of those needs.

Educated: A Memoir
Tara Westover

Courtney Spencer
Marketing Assistant

“This book is a memoir but feels like you’re peering into the latest primetime drama and makes you want to scream sometimes at how Westover’s family members behave. The way Educated: A Memoir was written brings you into the unknown world of extremism and isolation while also giving you hope that Westover will be able to achieve what she set out to do, no matter her limitations.”
