Watermark's Book of the Week is Whiskey When We're Dry by John Larison.
Set against an evocative, rich landscape, Whiskey is a propulsive quest for salvation and family, a love story, and a search for home in the unpredictable west. Yet in the diverse cast of characters who populate this novel, Larison explores those usually overlooked in our traditional stories of the west—and paints a broader picture of who we are as a country today. The novel reckons with gender and race in a way that makes it fully modern, and an exquisite (and far more accurate) rewriting of one of our dearest myths.

The Children's Book of the Week this week is Dream Country by Shannon Gibney.
“Dream Country is a gift of storytelling, of culture, and of understanding for an America that needs this book desperately. Through stories woven of manhood and humanity, of growing up and growing into oneself, Gibney shows us how the worlds between us grow wider even as our world grows smaller. She takes us through time and space to find the heart of an imperfect home.”—Kao Kalia Yang, award winning author of The Latehomecomer
