When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (2016)

“Paul Kalanithi discovers that he’s dying of cancer in his last year of medical residency. He has to figure out what he’ll do with the time he has left — finish medical school? Write that book he’s always wanted to write? Kalanithi explores life and death as questions of mortality and meaning weigh on his mind.”


The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (1895)

“Here is Oscar Wilde's most brilliant tour de force, a witty and buoyant comedy of manners that has delighted millions in countless productions since its first performance in London's St. James' Theatre on February 14, 1895. The Importance of Being Earnest is celebrated not only for the lighthearted ingenuity of its plot, but for its inspired dialogue, rich with scintillating epigrams still savored by all who enjoy artful conversation.”


What To Say Next by Julie Buxbaum (2017)

“When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?”


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (1960)

To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic book about a small family in Alabama during the Depression. “The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.”
