Book Culture Selects: March

March has certainly come in like a lion. But it's alright-- while we wait for it to finally feel like spring, we can always stay home and read the day away! Our subscribers have a certain advantage in this pursuit; we'll send a new book to curl up with right to their door, along with a handwritten note from the bookseller who picked it out. Staying in never felt so literary.

I'm particularly excited about this batch of books because a truly exceptional batch of debut authors. It also happens to feature my new absolute favorite picture book.
