9781250055637_607f1Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 12.22.32 PMThis month’s Target Club Pick brings renewed attention to The Book of Speculation, Erika Swyler (Macmillan/St. Martin’s Griffin; Macmillan Audio; OverDrive Sample), which
features a librarian as the
main character.

June 2015 LibraryReads selection, it was described by Amanda Monson, of Bartow County Library System, Cartersville, GA:

“A roller coaster of a read! This is the story of a librarian from a splintered family with a tragic past who is gifted a mysterious book that leads him to dive deep into his family’s history, all while his present life seems to be falling to pieces around him. If you loved Morgenstern’s The Night Circus or Kostova’s The Historian, this is a book for you.”

The pick coincides with the paperback release of the novel, with added features; the short story “The Mermaid Girl,” an author Q&A, reading group guide, and a short essay by the author. Swyler offers images and a list of the new features on her tumblr page.
