Penguin Random House pre-pub titles your users are sure to love
Digipalooza is a mere two weeks away now and we are beyond excited to present the latest innovations from OverDrive as well as best practices from leading librarians with attendees. While we wait for the arrival of hundreds of librarians to Cleveland, we wanted to take a moment to thank one more of our wonderful sponsors. Penguin Random House has long provided some of the most exciting new releases and their titles fly off the digital shelves. Below you’ll find some of their hotly anticipated pre-pub titles available now in OverDrive Marketplace.
American Wolf by Nate Blakeslee
With novelistic detail, Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of O-Six, a charismatic alpha female wolf in Yellowstone Park. She is beloved by wolf watchers, particularly renowned naturalist Rick McIntyre, and becomes something of a social media star, with followers around the world. But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is challenged on all fronts: by hunters, who compete with wolves for the elk they both prize; by cattle ranchers who are losing livestock and have the ear of politicians; and by other Yellowstone wolves who are vying for control of the park’s stunningly beautiful Lamar Valley.
Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
A collection of seventeen wonderful short stories showing that two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks is as talented a writer as he is an actor.
“It turns out that Tom Hanks is also a wise and hilarious writer with an endlessly surprising mind. Damn it.”
Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak
A warm, wry, sharply observed debut novel about what happens when a family is forced to spend a week together in quarantine over the holidays.
Endurance by Scott Kelly
A stunning memoir from the astronaut who spent a record-breaking year aboard the International Space Station—a candid account of his remarkable voyage, of the journeys off the planet that preceded it, and of his colorful formative years.
Artemis by Andy Weir
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon. Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. Especially when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.
The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg
An emotionally powerful novel about three people who each lose the one they love most, only to find second chances where they least expect them. Wonderfully written and full of profound observations about life, The Story of Arthur Truluv is a beautiful and moving novel of compassion in the face of loss, of the small acts that turn friends into family, and of the possibilities to achieve happiness at any age.
The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey
Introducing an extraordinary female lawyer-sleuth in a new historical series set in 1920s Bombay! Inspired in part by a real woman who made history by becoming India’s first female lawyer, The Widows of Malabar Hill is a richly wrought story of multicultural 1920s Bombay as well as the debut of a sharp and promising new sleuth, Perveen Mistry.
Need to Know by Karen Cleveland
In pursuit of a Russian sleeper cell on American soil, a CIA analyst uncovers a dangerous secret that will test her loyalty to the agency—and to her family.
