We have updated the website to reflect what our staff are currently recommending, and added more resources for Kids and YA. First, we added new faces to our staff recommendations. Please give our booksellers Kaycee and Maris a big welcome, and check out what books they loved.
Kaycee just finished reading Barn 8 by Deb Olin Unferth . “Witty, dark, passionate, and absurd. This novel had me suddenly engulfed in a plot to steal thousands of chickens and the perps behind it. It was a sheer joy to read, but I would not recommend it to the faint of heart. I switched to the Libro.FM audiobook about halfway through so I could listen to it on my way to work, and it really made the words come to life.”
Maris picked Falcon Thief by Joshua Hammer. “I am gripped by Joshua Hammer's The Falcon Thief, a new true crime/wildlife adventure book that follows the exploits (both hair-raising and ire-provoking) of a man who stole rare birds and rare bird eggs from the wild to sell on the black market. Along the way, I'm learning about wonderful birds of prey, the history of wildlife crime and the inexplicable fascination some people have with rare eggs.”
We're working on a virtual reading with local author Russell Rowland and his new book Cold Country- submit your questions about Cold Country and his writing here. Get your questions in by Monday, May 4th
Lastly, do you need a card with that? Add Mother’s Day or graduation cards to any book purchase, or individually on their own for $5 each. Click the links to see photos and for more information. More cards coming to our website soon or ask a bookseller to pick something out for you.
