Book Brave: an eclectic book club

The Book Brave book club explores excellent literature of all kinds. Fiction or nonfiction, we promise each selection will make you think, stretch your imagination, and challenge your preconceived notions.

The Book Bravers return in September with one of the store's bestselling titles, THE HEARTS OF HORSES by Oregon author, Molly Gloss. Like many of Gloss's books, THE HEARTS OF HORSES is a historical fiction set in Oregon, this one during WWI, and follows Martha Lassen, a 19-year-old female horse breaker trying to make her way in a man's field and a man's world. Complicating matters are the war effort and the newly introduced automobile. The writing is lyrical and lovely and apropos to today's changing society, even with the remove of history.
