I keep forcing my friends to read this AMAZING poetry book! The poems in this book are stripped of all pomp, frill, and unnecessary imagery, and focus, instead, on breaking down stereotypes of what it means to be Native American in modern, sociological landscapes. Pico delivers his message in down-to-earth, colloquial language, making his poetry incredibly accessible to younger generations. [Christina]

Published: Knopf - June 11th, 2019

Bob-Waksberg looks at romance from all angles in a wonderfully absurd way. At the core they are love stories but they are also about doors to other dimensions where your teeth fall out, gene splicing dead presidents, and deciding how many goats to sacrifice at your wedding. [Karen]

This little beauty is a wonderful traveling companion! In it, D’Ors advocates for more meditation and silence in our daily lives, especially in light of our increasingly busy-busy lives. Overall, this book is a delightful combination of Zen Buddhism and Christian principles, and the chapters are short and non-preachy. Pass the book on when you’re done! [Christina]

Published: Image Comics - November 1st, 2016

When I picked up this graphic novel, I didn’t expect to get pulled into the dystopian story so quickly or deeply! The narrative centers around humanity’s relationship to technology and how we’re flirting with giving up autonomy for the sake of connectivity and “progress.” The nihilist in you will delight at the unexpected plot turns, and the artist in you will be giddy with the overabundance of exceptional artwork.
