THE MATH CAMPERS: Poems Hailed as “a poet of dazzling intellectual resources and unmatched sophistication” (Louise Glück), Dan Chiasson’s new collection is a father and husband's meditation on love, adolescence, and the process of composing poetry. “These intricately crafted poems unfold like ‘nested dreams’” (Los Angeles Times). Dan Chiasson is the Lorraine Wang Professor of English at Wellesley College and poetry critic of The New Yorker. (Photo: courtesy of the author)
LAST NIGHT AT THE TELEGRAPH CLUB America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially in San Francisco’s Chinatown. This romantic, historical novel is one of self-discovery against the odds. “This is a beautiful, brave story, and Lily is a heroine that readers will love” (BookPage, starred review). Wellesley graduate Malinda Lo is a highly acclaimed author of several young adult novels. She lives in Massachusetts. (Photo: courtesy of the author)
