Your first look at 'Caging Skies'. On sale one month from today!

An avid member of the Hitler Youth in 1940s Vienna, Johannes Betzler discovers his parents are hiding a Jewish girl named Elsa behind a false wall in their home. His initial horror turns to interest—then love and obsession. After his parents disappear, Johannes is the only one aware of Elsa’s existence in the house and the only one responsible for her survival.

By turns disturbing and blackly comic, haunting and cleverly satirical, Christine Leunens’s captivating and masterful novel—the basis for a major forthcoming film by Taika Waititi—examines this world of truth and lies, laying bare the darkest corners of the human soul. http://bit.ly/2WOlh1L

A *genius* chocolate chunk cookie recipe! 🍪 The former pastry chef at Genuine Pizza came up with this amazing idea of stuffing a chunk of chocolate inside a ball of cookie dough and baking it as such. These cookies are on the thicker side, slightly soft and yielding in the center, and the chocolate is a bit of a surprise, since you don’t see it on the outside.

Kelly” live from The Greene Space with #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and writer Jamilah Lemieux.

“That day, when I unpacked my gear, I saw those boots, covered in that specific, fine dust from Iraq. The sensation of the dust and the smell of boots set off an intense flashback of being there, back in the desert. The boots were part of my uniform, part of who I was. They were flame-retardant and standard-issue, but used especially by air crews. They represent everything about who I was as a person when I wore them. The smell of Iraq, the dust, and the memories come with them.”—Senator Tammy Duckworth, as told to Amanda Benchley in 'Our Shoes, Our Selves'

We are forever grateful for those who have served our country so we can stay safe at home. 🇺🇸Take a moment to think of them this Memorial Day!
