No street work today, so there are plenty of places to park while you drop by to check out the new books and new lights! Last chance before the holiday!
Just ahead of Columbus Day, 14 new items, including the much talked about Beneath a Scarlet Sky (Mark Sullivan), a tale of WWII resistance. Also, fiction by award-winner Jennifer Egan, suspense by Stephen King and Dan Brown, relationship drama by Susan Mallery and Elin Hilderbrand, mysteries by Anne Perry and Will thomas, a western by Michael Zimmer and more.
Here are some of the bestsellers which arrived while the library was working on its lighting. “A Column of Fire” is Ken Follett’s third installment of his drama set in the Cathedral town of Knightsbridge. It’s now the Tudor era, where power precariously shifts between Catholics and Protestants. Follett serves up suspense, romance and history in equal measure. “The Girl who takes an Eye for an Eye“ by David Lagercrantz (pinch-hitting for the late Stieg Larson) is the latest case for the dragon tattoo girl. In “Little Fires Everywhere” by book club fav Celeste Ng, a placid Cleveland suburb becomes the scene of an intense family drama. In “A Legacy of Spies” by John Le Carré, George Smiley’s protégé Peter Guillam is summoned from retirement in Brittany “to clear up a bit of unpleasantness” from the past. In “The Romanov Ransom” by Clive Cussler, The Fargos, neo- Nazis and Russian crime lords vie to recover a Tsarist McGuffin.
We’ve been so excited about the new lights that we almost forgot to mention that the man from UPS was here with a delivery of new books and DVDs while we were closed. Look for suspense Coben, Demille, Patterson and Cussler, the latest epic by Ken Follet, mysteries by Charles Todd and Dana Stabenow, and fiction by Jan Karon and Jaime Ford. New DVD include the 5th season of Longmire, Wonder Woman and the latest Pirates of the Caribbean farrago.
The new stack lights are installed and they look terrific. Drop by and see for yourself! The installation was done by Consolidates Electrical Distributors of Gilford. Many heartfelt thanks to Annette Nichols, The CH Energy Cte, the Board of Selectmen and the Library Board of Trustees for all their hard work in making this happen.
