Thursday, December 5th - Buddhaland Brooklyn by Richard Moraisis

A vivid portrait of faith lost and found through the eyes of a Japanese Buddhist monk in America. Seido Oda makes his way from an isolated monastery in Japan to the bustling streets of Brooklyn, New York. When his parents hand him over to the monks at the nearby Buddhist monastery, he devotes himself to painting, poetry, and prayer—and avoiding human contact. But his quiet life is unexpectedly upended when he is ordered by his superior to open a temple in Brooklyn.

Thursday, January 9th - Dear George, Dear Mary: A Novel of George Washington's First Love by Mari Calvi

    Inspired by hundreds of letters, witness accounts, and journal entries from the eighteenth century, Dear George, Dear mary, explores George Washington’s relationship with his first love, Mary Eliza Philipse, the richest Belle in America.
