Paperback releases for the week of February 26th include WEYWARD by Emilia Hart, an enthralling novel of female resilience and the transformative power of the natural world that weaves together the stories of three extraordinary women across five centuries; Tom Rob Smith's COLD PEOPLE, a fast-paced thriller about an Antarctic colony of global apocalypse survivors seeking to reinvent civilization under the most extreme conditions imaginable; THE EXCEPTIONS, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Kate Zernike's inspiring account of the 16 female scientists who forced MIT to publicly admit that it had been discriminating against its female faculty for years --- sparking a nationwide reckoning with the pervasive sexism in science; and ONCE UPON A TOME by Oliver Darkshire, the colorful story of life in one of the world’s oldest bookshops and a love letter to the benign, unruly world of antiquarian bookselling, where to be uncommon or strange is the best possible compliment.
