NEW HEATHER'S PICKS

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing two new Heather's Picks: Wenjack by Joseph Boyden and Waiting for the First Light by Romeo Dallaire.

In Wenjack, the acclaimed author of The Orenda gives us a powerful and poignant look into the last moments of Chanie Wenjack, a residential school runaway trying to find his way home. Chanie's story is as true as it is heartbreaking – and an absolute must-read for all Canadians.

In Waiting for the First Light, Roméo Dallaire, retired general, former senator, bestselling author, and one of the world's leading humanitarians, delves deep into his life since the Rwandan genocide.   Traumatized by witnessing genocide on an imponderable scale in Rwanda, Dallaire reflects in these pages on the nature of PTSD and the impact of that deep wound on his life since 1994, and on how he motivates himself and others to humanitarian work despite his constant struggle.

#IndigoBookClub!

The #IndigoBookClub calls on booklovers from all over the globe to take part in a monthly Twitter party to discuss great reads in 140 characters or less.

This month's #IndigoBookClub title is The Best Kind of People by Zoe Whittall.  What if someone you trusted was accused of the unthinkable? The Best Kind of People grapples that question with the story of George Woodbury, an affable teacher and beloved husband and father, who is arrested for sexual impropriety at a prestigious prep school.  With exquisite emotional precision, award-winning author Zoe Whittall explores issues of loyalty, truth, and the meaning of happiness through the lens of an all-American family on the brink of collapse.

Join the #IndigoBookClub Twitter party with @chaptersindigo on November 30th at 7 PM EST to take part in a discussion about The Best Kind of People with Canadian author Zoe Whittall.

INDIGO's STAFF PICK 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.

The Staff Pick of the Month for November is Faithful by Alice Hoffman. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage of Opposites and The Dovekeepers comes a soul-searching story about a young woman struggling to redefine herself and the power of love, family, and fate.

Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate. Her best friend's future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt.
