It has come to our attention that Barack Obama follows us on twitter!
As a community bookstore that strives to offer a highly curated selection of the best that literature has to offer, we take this as a great honour.
Obama's Summer Reading List was posted just this past Wednesday and features the collected works of Toni Morrison, Inland by Téa Obreht, The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead, Exhalation by Ted Chiang, American Spy by Lauren Wilkinson, and Maid by Stephanie Land, among others.
In June, we had the thrill of hosting a book club for Michelle Obama's Becoming (Barack's favourite book of 2018!) In Becoming, Michelle Obama reiterates that Barack Obama is a voracious reader as well as frequent and prolific writer and we eagerly await a new book from either Michelle or Barack!
