Next Starbucks Pick: The House at Sugar Beach

The House at Sugar Beach, a memoir by New York Times diplomatic correspondent Helene Cooper, will be the next Starbucks pick. Look for the book beginning September 3rd. In a statement, Cooper said, "I remember going into my local Starbucks on K Street in Washington for my morning coffee on my way to work, and seeing [earlier Starbucks pick] Ishmael Beah's Long Way Gone on the counter. I was thrilled for him as a fellow West African--and so envious myself at the same time! I'm not ashamed to say that I stood in line daydreaming that one day it would be me."
