On today's episode, Adam chats with Cadwell Turnbull about his novel The Lesson, which comes out June 18th. This story about an advanced race of aliens coming to The U.S. Virgin Islands explore colonialism and the history of an oft-overlooked part of the world.

Today's episode is sponsored by Blackstone Publishing. In addition to The Lesson, here are two more great books to check out from Blackstone:

-ANOTHER LIFE by Robert Haller (June 4, 2019)

Description: Set during one summer in a small town in upstate New York, Robert Haller’s debut novel, Another Life, is a modern comedy with a dark edge, centered around an evangelical church. Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men, praised the novel, saying: “A fresh voice meets an old soul in Robert Haller, whose Another Life won me over completely with its dark humor, refined earnestness, and uncommon wisdom.” Another Life releases from Blackstone Publishing, on June 4th in hardcover, e-book, and audio.

-BLACKBERRY AND WILD ROSE by Sonia Velton (May 7, 2019)

Description: In eighteenth-century London, a household of Huguenot silk weavers pursue the perfect silk design, while unrest among the journeyman silk weavers boils over into riot and rebellion, in Sonia Velton’s Blackberry and Wild Rose, an historical fiction debut, now available. Booklist raves “fans of Jessie Burton’s The Miniaturist will thoroughly enjoy this engrossing, atmospheric tale of two women struggling for control of their own lives.”
