      Staff Picks for March 2018


      Directed by the Wachowskis
      Tania's Pick

      Before they blew our minds with The Matrix, Lana (then Larry) and Lilly (then Andy) Wachowski put together a dirty little ace of a neo-noir. Steeped in longing looks and treachery, this caper film features 90’s “It” girls, Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilley, plus everyone’s favourite whining gangster, Joe Pantoliano. If you like your LGBTQ+ content with a side of hot and bothered, Bound has the full meal deal.
      The Emperor's Blades

      The Emperor's Blades
      by Brian Staveley
      Sarah's Pick

      The emperor of Annur has been assassinated and his daughter and two sons are determined to find who did it. Join Kaden the monk, Valyn the Kettral soldier, and Adare the Minister, as they attempt to uncover the truth about their father’s death.
      Independence Days

      Independence Days
      by Sharon Astyk
      Joshua's Pick

      I love fermentation and this book has a great section on the topic. It is also an introduction to anarchy philosophy and hands on techniques.

      The Luminaries
      by Eleanor Catton
      Gabriel from Arts & Science's Pick

      An engrossing narrative with a highly unusual structure.
