NEW HEATHER'S PICKS AND INDIGO SPOTLIGHT

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover, Heather Reisman, is announcing three new Heather's Picks for April: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Dead Wake by Erik Larson and Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf.

One of the best-loved stories of all timeTo Kill a Mockingbird is a gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice. If you have never read this classic, now is the time; after more than forty years, author Harper Lee is set to release the novel's sequel and her second book, Go Set a Watchman, on July 14, 2015.  

From bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction Erik Larson comes Dead Wake, the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania during World War I. Gripping and important, Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured by history.

Our Souls at Night is a spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. Their brave adventures are hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to author Kent Haruf's enduring contribution to American literature.

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 Spotlight title is The Room by Jonas Karlsson.

Pick up this cracking tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary office culture and decide for yourself whether Björn is out of order – or whether the whole system is out of whack.

#WorldsBiggestBookClub!

Take part in Indigo's monthly Twitter party that brings book lovers together to discuss great reads in 140 characters or less. This month's #WorldsBiggestBookClub title is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
