The New York Times-bestselling author of "Summer Sisters" and of young adult classics such as "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" creates a richly textured and moving story of three generations of families, friends and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by unexpected events.

queenslibrary Our #BookTuesday pick this week is "Country" by #DanielleSteel.

In this rich, involving novel from the New York Times-bestselling author, a woman's life catapults from the old to the new, as she learns to seize the moment. As it deftly explores the complex ties between spouses, children, lovers and friends, and dances between the past and the future, "Country" captures the shock of sudden loss, and the freedom it can bring.

queenslibrary Our pick for #BookTuesday, June 9 is #TheWrightBrothers by #DavidMcCullough.

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and master historian David McCullough tells the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly. In this thrilling book, he draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks and more than a thousand letters, to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them.

queenslibrary Our pick for #BookTuesday, June 2 is #FindersKeepers by @StephenKing. "Finders Keepers" is the second book of the #MrMercedes trilogy. A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far, "Finders Keepers" is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life — for good, for bad, forever.

queenslibrary Our pick for #BookTuesday, May 26 is “And Sometimes I Wonder About You” by #WalterMosley, the welcome return of Leonid McGill, Mosley's NYC-based private eye and his East Coast foil to his immortal L.A.-based detective Easy Rawlins. As the Boston Globe raved, "A poignantly real character, [McGill is] not only the newest of the great fictional detectives, but also an incisive and insightful commentator on the American scene."

queenslibrary Our pick for #BookTuesday, May 19 is "God Help the Child" by #ToniMorrison. “What you do to children matters. And they might never forget.” Spare and unsparing, "God Help the Child" — the first novel by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment — weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult. This fierce, provocative book adds a new dimension to the work of the Nobel Prize-winning author.

queenslibrary Our pick for #BookTuesday is "Born With Teeth" by @thekatemulgrew.

We know Kate Mulgrew for the strong women she's played — Mary Ryan on "Ryan's Hope"; Captain Janeway on "Star Trek: Voyager"; the tough-as-nails Galina "Red" Reznikov on "Orange is the New Black." Now, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself.

By turns irreverent and soulful, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-piercingly sad, "Born With Teeth" is the breathtaking memoir of a woman who dares to live life to the fullest, on her own terms.

queenslibrary Our new pick for #BookTuesday is “99 Problems,” written and illustrated by Ali Graham @grargmedia.

Begun as a Tumblr, which went viral almost instantly, “99 Problems” riffs on what might be the real problems afflicting a world-famous music mogul who looks just like a certain legendary rapper.
