Colorful journey by Sue Anne Bottomley is an exploration of New Hampshire through art (700s). Bottomley visited all of New Hampshire’s towns, painted watercolors (760s) of local sites. It’s at once a charming bit of local history and a study in the use of pastels. The Great Nadar (780s) by Adam Begley explores the life of the pioneering French photographer (780s). Like Any Warhol, his salon became a scene. The Accomplished Guest by Anne Beattie is a tasty collection of short fiction (813). The Princess Diarist by the late Carrie Fisher and I need a Lifeguard (everywhere but the pool) by Lisa Scottoline are equal parts humor (817) and dish.
