NEW HEATHER'S PICK
Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is pleased to announce two new additions to Heather's Picks for April: Exit West by Mohsin Hamid and Strong is the New Pretty by Kate T. Parker.

Exit West: in a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, they begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice, they find a door and step through.

Strong is the New Pretty: Real beauty isn't about being a certain size, acting a certain way, wearing the right clothes, or having your hair done (or even brushed). Real beauty is about being your authentic self and owning it. Kate T. Parker is a professional photographer who finds the real beauty in girls, capturing it for all the world to see in candid and arresting images.

INDIGO'S STAFF PICKS OF THE MONTH
Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love. Click here to learn more about Indigo's Staff Pick of the Month program.

April's Staff Pick of the Month is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. In this multi-award-winning, bestselling novel, Margaret Atwood has created a stunning Orwellian vision of the near future. This is the story of Offred, one of the unfortunate "Handmaids" under the new social order who have only one purpose: to breed. In Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships, Offred's persistent memories of life in the "time before" and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. Provocative, startling, prophetic, and with Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit, and acute perceptive powers in full force, The Handmaid's Tale is at once satire and dire warning.
