May: The Change by Kirsten Miller

May’s GMA book-club pick follows three women who discover that midlife changes bring new types of empowerment. “I like to think of it as a feel good feminist revenge fantasy with witches!” Miller told GMA. “It follows three women who have reached a certain age and discover they’ve developed some unexpected powers.” See a map of locations here and watch the segment.

April: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

Lessons in Chemistry takes place in 1960s California. The story follows Elizabeth Zott, a chemist who works at Hastings Research Institute. Though brilliant and a highly trained scientist, Zott isn’t respected by her colleagues because she’s a woman. Elizabeth’s life takes a turn when she becomes a single mother and the unlikely star of a TV cooking show. But, as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Not only is she teaching her audience—so-called “average” housewives”—how to cook, she’s daring them to change the status quo. See a map of locations here and watch the segment.

March: The Love of My Life by Rosie Walsh

Walsh’s new book has so many twists and turns that it will keep you guessing until the very last page. The novel follows Emma, a well-known marine-biologist. She loves her husband, Leo, and their young daughter, Ruby, and would do anything for them. But almost everything she’s told them about herself is a lie. We’re excited that 150 Little Free Library stewards were selected to receive two copies of this book to share in their libraries. See a map of locations here and watch the segment.
