Featured Book: Saints & Boxers

Celebrated graphic novelist, Gen Lueng Yang, has taken the story of the Boxer Rebellion in China and created two wonderful and heartbreaking novels. Boxers tells the story of a little boy who is mistreated by Western ideology and revolts by later joining the Boxer Rebellion. Saints tells a different story about a little girl who is taken in by kind Christian missionaries and later, she and her faith become targets of the Boxer Rebellion.

Completely engrossing, these two novels are beautifully illustrated and keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page.

Featured Book: Ashfall Trilogy

The final book in the Ashfall Trilogy will be published April 15th. We are anticipating this final chapter in the exciting series from native Indiana author Mike Mullin. His post-apocalyptic trilogy is terrifying because it could really happen! If you enjoy science, fast-paced story lines and action, this series is for you.
