New and Noteworthy
The library has all the newest books as well as dvds and downloadable titles. Of note:
“The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs” by Elias Weiss Friedman — The cutest bogs you ever saw!
“The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster” by Scott Wilbanks: Annie and Elsbeth’s search for an explanation to the hiccup in the universe linking their homes leads to an unsettling discovery-and potential disaster for both of them. Together they must solve the mystery of what connects them before one of them is convicted of a murder that has yet to happen…and yet somehow already did. A fun read.
“Dead Presidents: An American Adventure into the Strange Deaths and Surprising Afterlives of our Nation’s Leaders” by Brady Carlson — An entertaining and informative look at the death of some America’s leaders and how we remember them.
