NEW HEATHER'S PICKS!
Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman announces a new Heather's Pick for February: Molly's Game by Molly Bloom.
Now a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera - the true story of "Hollywood's poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.
In Molly's Game, Molly Bloom takes you through her adventures running an exclusive high-stakes private poker game catering to such clients as Hollywood royalty like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, athletes, billionaires, politicians and financial titans. With rich detail, Molly describes a world of glamour, privilege and secrecy in which she made millions, lived the high life and fearlessly took on the Russian and Italian mobs until she met the one adversary she could not outsmart: the United States government. It's the story of how a determined woman gained—and then lost—her place at the table, and of everything she learned about poker, love and life in the process.
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. The February Staff Picks of the Month are Need to Know by Karen Cleveland, BRAVE by Rose McGowan and The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert.
Fiction Staff Pick of the Month: Need to Know
A chilling psychological thriller from a CIA insider: in hot pursuit of a Russian spy ring on U.S. soil, a CIA analyst uncovers a deadly secret that will test her loyalty to the agency—and to her family.
Vivian and Matt are a seemingly normal suburban couple, experiencing the same struggles as many North American families: juggling work and children, budgeting for a house in a decent school district. They're in love and life is good. Though Vivian can't share much about her CIA assignment with him, Matt has always been supportive, and his job as a software engineer allows him the flexibility needed to raise their four kids. But when she makes a startling discovery researching the CIA's Russian account, everything about her life and her marriage is cast in a new light—forcing her to make impossible and dangerous choices before she loses her job, her family and her life.
Non-Fiction Staff Pick of the Month: BRAVE
Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.
BRAVE is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multi-billion dollar business built on systemic misogyny and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.
Teen Staff Pick of the Month: The Hazel Wood
Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice's life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice's grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: "Stay away from the Hazel Wood."
Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother's cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
