Staff Pick: Riley Lucas

My name is Riley and I’ve worked at The Bookstore at Library Square for almost 6 years. I’m a queer woman and a writer and I think there is a real need for wider representation in literature. Along those lines, my staff pick has to be An Unkindness of Ghosts, by Rivers Solomon. A powerful story of loss and community and struggle set in a science fiction setting aboard a colony ship bound for the stars. The story follows Aster Gray as she tries to piece together the mystery of her mother’s death and what it means for her and the ship she lives in. It’s gut wrenching and suspenseful and impossible to put down.
