NEW HEATHER'S PICKS & INDIGO SPOTLIGHT

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover, Heather Reisman has announced two new Heather's Picks: Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull, and Thrive by Arianna Huffington.

From Ed Catmull, the co-founder of Pixar Animation Studios (with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter), comes an incisive book about creativity in business. Creativity, Inc is the story of Pixar, how an upstart, an underdog, stared down failure time and again on the road to success.

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington makes an impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world. In this deeply personal book, Huffington posits that there is far more to living a truly successful life than earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office.

The Indigo Spotlight program introduces readers to a new standout title every month selected and curated by our expert book buyers. We're pleased to announce that April's Indigo Spotlight title is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. A small town, a book store, and an abandoned child. AJ Fikry's story is a novel that comes along so rarely: heart-warming, funny, wise beyond words, and sentimental in the best possible way.

ANNOUNCING #WORLDSBIGGESTBOOKCLUB!  

Celebrate World Book Day with Indigo's new twitter book club! On April 23 Indigo is launching #WorldsBiggestBookClub, a monthly Twitter party that brings book lovers together to discuss great reads in 140 characters or less. Indigo will announce the first book on World Book Day. Readers will have until late May to read the novel in preparation for the discussion and review on Twitter. Follow @chaptersindigo.
