The Crossover by Kwame Alexander.

YA novel, written in verse. Very thought provoking.

1Q84 by Haruki Murakawi

The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver

A Guide for the Perplexed by Dara Horn

BEING MORTAL by Atul Gawande Suitable for all ages because we are all going to die and many of us are going to grow old and increasingly frail. The sooner we begin to think seriously about it, the better our prospects for a more meaningful life in or out of a senior community or in a nursing home -- a real home/community, not a warehouse. Things are getting better on that front, but much more is needed. Gawande is an easy-to-read but profoundly thought-provoking writer/physician.

The Orphan Master's Son, set in North Korea and about stories and storytelling and their power to become the new truth. It's also a rare and fascinating look inside an extreme totalitarian regime and what one man does to manipulate, maneuver, and survive. Texas makes an appearance, a setting for a bizarre contrast in lifestyles, character, and cultures.

The Art Student's War, set in mid-century Detroit, coming of age. I haven't read this yet, but a relative is the copy editor and highly recommended it. NY Times review:

$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America
This slim, searing look at extreme poverty deftly mixes policy research and heartrending narratives from a swath of the 1.5 million American households eking out an existence on cash incomes of $2 per person per day. Edin and Shaefer, respectively professors at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan, trace the history of welfare in the U.S. up to the cuts enacted by President Clinton. They also explore the worlds of the desperately impoverished, profiling people who are able to find, at best, low-wage jobs with no bargaining power. Their subjects’ wrenching stories demonstrate the huge obstacles created by unstable housing and prevalent racial discrimination.

Another vote for "Love & Vodka: My Surreal Adventures in Ukraine"

Brilliant new book from local author and teacher, R.J. Fox. Part travel memoir, part love story, full of culture shock and humor, "Love & Vodka" will have you hooked from the first page. It's all about taking a chance in life and seeing where it might lead as well as learning more about the world and about yourself. Most definitely "a very good read" that would create plenty of discussion.

Love & Vodka, a memoir by local author and English teacher R.J. Fox, published by Ann Arbor based Fish Out Of Water Books.

Another suggestion for reading Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. The book explores how we approach ageing and the process of dying and would be a valuable springboard for discussion of end of life choices for ourselves and loved ones.
