Trying to keep abreast of new books? Stop by the Adult Services Desk and take home the latest copy of BookPage, a selection guide to the best new titles released each month.
Bookpage’s mission is "to connect every book lover with their next great read." Reviews encompass a wide range of new books from literary fiction, history and biography to popular genres such as mystery and romance, with sections dedicated to recently published titles for children and teens. In addition, each issue includes author interviews and special features. In May’s BookPage, Chris Cleave talks about his new novel “Everyone Brave is Forgiven,” and Pulitzer-prize winner Richard Russo explains why twenty years after the publication of “Nobody's Fool,” he decided to revisit the residents of North Bath, New York in “Everybody's Fool.” The May issue also spotlights new books for planning a road trip and historical fiction focusing on Jewish history.
Not to be outdone, our librarians use their unique perspectives to create two monthly publications, Fiction News and Non-Fiction News that highlight new books chosen for their relevance to the diverse reading interests of our patrons. Pick up copies at the library or view them on the Reader's Resources section of our website.
