NEW HEATHER'S PICKS

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing two new Heather's Picks: Cooking for Jeffrey by Ina Garten and To Pixar and Beyond by Lawrence Levy. Both books make thoughtful holiday gifts for the chef or entrepreneur on your list.

For America's bestselling cookbook author Ina Garten there is no greater pleasure than cooking for the people she loves—and particularly for her husband, Jeffrey. She has been Cooking for Jeffrey ever since they were married 48 years ago, and the comforting, delicious meals they shared became the basis for her extraordinary career in food. From satisfying lunches to elegant dinners, here are the recipes Ina has tested over and over again, so you too can serve them with confidence to the people you love.

In To Pixar and Beyond, author Lawrence Levy tells the incredible story of a surprise phone call – and everything that happened next. "Hi, Lawrence?" the caller asked. "This is Steve Jobs. I saw your picture in a magazine a few years ago and thought we'd work together someday." Set in the worlds of Silicon Valley and Hollywood, the book takes readers inside Pixar, Disney, law firms, and investment banks to chronicle Pixar's stunning ascent.

INDIGO'S STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH

Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love.

The Staff Pick of the Month for December is Born a Crime by Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show. Trevor Noah's unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison.

Noah's personal essays are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting. His stories weave together to form a moving and funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother's unconventional, unconditional love.
