Relevant certainly describes a handful of these books—important ones on climate, pandemics, and race—not necessarily cheery topics but valuable at a time when perspective and facts are essential.
Not all the books are on such serious topics. Three are visual treats. And if nothing but good fiction can transport you from the present reality, perhaps you’ll enjoy a new translation of a French classic.
We’re also introducing new mysteries set in India, Italy, and Scandinavia. If you think you’re not a fan of the mystery genre, maybe you should sample one just for the armchair travel possibilities.
Yes, I’m intentionally teasing you. Look for the entire list of books to be distributed to your door by mid-October. You can pick up an extra copy in the library, and it will be on the website.
Thanks to teams led by Katie Weiblen and Catherine Wengler and composed of Greta Michaels, Victoria Tirrel, Barbara Woshinsky, Veena Deo, Faye Herold, Jenny Rajput, and Helga Visscher for selecting these books and making the library’s collection better than ever.
Carol Van Why coordinated the project. Veena Deo, Ed Lotterman, Victoria Tirrel, Carol Van Why, and Richard Zeyen donated five of the books from the Committee’s wish list. As requested by the Board, the extra $300 was spent at a local, independent bookseller. Richard Zeyen placed orders for the rest via Amazon Prime.
