    EL PASO
    by Winston Groom

    This is a book to settle in with on long winter nights. El Paso will transport you to the times of the 1916 Mexican Revolution and the vicious border wars set in the harsh deserts and mountains of northern Mexico.. A railroad tycoon, known at the Colonel, is pulled into the conflict when two and a half million dollars in "beef on the hoof" are raided from his ranch. Believing that Pancho Villa stole the cattle, he hopes to gather a group of men brave enough to hunt down Villa and bring him to justice. If you like your stories with an historical background and filled with heroes, villains, shootouts, rescues, and even a bullfight, this is the epic for you. Winston Groom has also written Forrest Gump.

    SMALL GREAT THINGS
    by Jodi Picoult

    You know you're in for a compelling, "straight from the headlines" type of theme when you pick up one of Jodi's books. This one will be right at the top of the list. Her story takes on the challenging subjects of prejudice, race, justice, compassion, and privilege. We meet Ruth, a competent African-American labor & delivery nurse, who is caring for a newborn baby when she is told by her superiors that the baby's parents, who are white supremacists, demand that she not touch their baby. When the baby goes into cardiac arrest, and Ruth is the only one in the nursery, she is faced with the dilemma of following orders or intervening. It's a page turner from then on!

ROB BELL IS COMING TO VISIT

THURSDAY, JUNE 1; 7 PM

(Line numbers beginning at 6 pm. Please show your books&co receipt for
What is the Bible? to get a line number.)

ROB BELL will introduce his newest book, What is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything. He encourages readers to take a deep dive into Christianity’s ancient book and see how it is much more revelatory, revolutionary, and relevant than we ever imagined – and explains why we need to encounter it afresh. He views the Bible not as a singular text stemming from one point of view. Instead, he considers it a library –a complex and multifaceted collection of poems, letters, and stories compiled over 1500 years by over 40 contributors. He looks at it as a compilation written, assembled, and edited by people living in different times, functioning under different circumstances, and possessing differing opinions and agendas. HARPER ONE

Rob Bell is the New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, The Zimzum of Love, and How to Be Here. Time magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.
