I jump at any book with Tacoma legend, and my personal hero, Neko Case. But there's so much more here, like unsung musical heroes Odetta and Memphis Minnie. The short bios with stunning illustrations make this the perfect gift for anyone into music. Also, staff favorite Dolly makes an appearance. For women about to rock, we salute you! [Karen]

When my heart hurts, the only things that make me feel better are soft pillows, whiskey, and soul-crushing poetry. This book feels like all three at once. The narrative explores the falsehood of keeping people at arms-length while moving through the motions of "loving," something we've all done. Read this and hate yourself a little less. [Christina]

Lowriders in Space is a lovely celebration of Mexican-American culture, street art, and creativity. I fell in love with this YA graphic novel the moment I opened it. The story is light-hearted and fun, but it’s content also stirs up important questions about being bilingual, cultural heritage, and what constitutes “real” art and books. This is a great choice for educators looking to inspire deeper dialogue among youth, particularly surrounding culture and language. Bonus: Cathy Camper is a regional artist and librarian, based out of Oregon! [Christina]

A fun, fascinating read about some freaky supernatural, or otherwise unexplainable sightings. Written in short, easy to digest sections, this book will have you peering into the dark with a little more caution and maybe a little less skepticism. [Stacy]
