Christmas has come early to the library! Between the goodies picked up at the Book Fair this week (including a second copy of the Blood of Olympus by popular demand) and a fresh order just in, we currently have lots of fabulous new books to choose from for both our avid and more reluctant readers. So check out the “New Acquisitions“ on the Library Catalog and let yourself be transported to the destination of your choice.
But what of the weekly taster? Well, if you are not a series fiend and want something more off the beaten track, why not try We need new names by NoViolet Bulawayo. The book tells the feisty story of Darling, a young girl who escapes from Zimbabwe to America, to discover that the life an immigrant holds a grimness of a different kind. A beautiful story where humor jockeys alongside harrowing details to tell a vivid and fresh tale.
