New at the Library this week:
We have a new biography. “Solitary: unbroken by four decades in solitary confinement” by Albert Woodfox, is the story of a man who served more than four decades in solitary confinement for a crime that he did not commit.
Some new adult fiction titles: “The Body Double” by Emily Beyda; “Pandemic” by Robin Cook; “The River” by Peter Heller; “Rigged for Murder” by Elizabeth Penney; and “Olive, Again” by Elizabeth Stout.
If you have not ready Louis L’Amour for a while, now would be a good time to do so. We have updated much of this author’s collection with hardcover books that are wonderful. Stop in and check them out.
There are two new series of non-fiction in the junior section. One is about weird inventions: “Weird Transportation Inventions”, “Weird Medical Inventions”, “Weird Inventions for Your Pet”, “Weird Food Inventions”, “Weird Inventions for Your Home”, and “Weird Beauty Inventions”. The second compares the relationship between historical figures: “Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla”, “Sacagawea, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark”, “Herman Cortes and La Malinche”, “Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings”, and “Alexander Hamilton and John Wilkes Booth”. Both of these series are in the junior section, but might interest adult readers also.
There are two new junior fiction choices: “Afternoon on the Amazon” by Mary Pope Osborne and “The List of Things That Will Not Change” by Rebecca Stead.
We have added three Look and Find books to the junior easy section: “Look and Find: Marvel Avengers”, Look and Find: Thomas & Friends” and “First Look and Find: Puppy Dog Pals”.
Because it is the end of the month, there are lots of new magazines to choose from: Sky & Telescope, McCall’s Quick Quilts, Arthritis Today, Good Old Days, Saturday Evening Post, People, Eating Well, Family Handyman, Prevention, Ranger Rick, Readers Digest, Smithsonian, Garden Gate and Grit, to name just a few.
