2017 AM Book Club Picks

The AM Book Club just selected titles for the upcoming year.  Join the conversation every third Thursday at 11:00 AM.


The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson

Denver, 1961. Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional single life, running a bookshop she runs with her best friend, Frieda; coming and going as she pleases. There was a man once, a doctor named Kevin, but it didn't quite work out the way Kitty had hoped. Then the dreams begin.... Denver, 1963: Katharyn Andersson is married to Lars; they have beautiful children, an elegant home, and good friends-- but it only exists when she sleeps. And with each visit, the more irresistibly real her "dream" life becomes. Can she choose which life she wants... as the lines between her worlds begin to blur... ?


Defending Jacob by William Landay

When his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student, assistant district attorney Andy Barber is torn between loyalty and justice as facts come to light that lead him to question how well he knows his own son.



Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

The lives of three women converge at the Ravensbrück concentration camp as Caroline Ferriday resolves to help from her post at the French consulate, Kasia Kuzmerick becomes a courier in the Polish resistance, and Herta Oberheuser takes a German government medical position.
