If you didn’t get a chance to stop in during Banned Books Week, you still have time to look at the display of books that have been challenged over the years, including the top 10 most challenged books of 2020. We will have our display up through this week.
During the month of October, we will be having a “Spooktacular” Book Sale! We will give you a bag and you can put as many books as you can fit in it for $3.00. We also have boxes and boxes of Harlequin romances we will make a deal on, and Kelsey says she will load them in your car!
We have a long list of people who have made donations to the library. A shout out to: Mary Pyette, Theresa Danley, Betty Tilleman, Greg Swenson, Neal Rigg, Casey Overturf, Kay Johnson, M. Jeffrey Harshman, Rhea Miller, Gary Smith, Viki Tilleman, Patricia Hofeldt, Rita & Richard Grabofsky, Carol Johnsrud, Shirley MacKenzie, and Linda Sharples. Thank you for your generous donations!
We have quite a few thrillers available this week. A hot-button legal case fuels a community’s smoldering hostility-but the dark secret at its heart could set the town ablaze, in “The Truth of it All” by Montana author Gwen Florio. Agents Sherlock and Savich find themselves dealing with very powerful figures from the past who could wreak havoc in the present, in the new FBI thriller “Vortex” by Catherine Coulter. Gambler Logan Tanner is a man with a secret past that’s about to come back to haunt him in “High Stakes” by Iris Johansen. “All’s Well” by Mona Awad is a dazzling and darkly funny novel about a theater professor who is convinced staging Shakespeare’s most maligned play will remedy all that ails her—but at what cost? “She Wouldn’t Change a Thing” by Sarah Adlakha is a story about a wife and mother who is given the chance to start over at the risk of losing everything she loves. If you love watching true crime and wonder about the psychopaths among us, “Never Saw Me Coming” by Vera Kurian is the book for you! It is a compulsive thriller that will keep you pinned to the page a rooting for a would-be killer.
