Librarian's Picks

Have you seen our new display on the main floor of the library filled with books that our very own librarians personally recommend? Here are a sample of the few titles you'll find there today:

The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen: After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson's disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. Stretching from the Midwest at midcentury to the Wall Street and Eastern Europe of today, The Corrections brings an old-fashioned world of civic virtue and sexual inhibitions into violent collision with the era of home surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental health care, and globalized greed. 

The Island by Elin Hilderbrand
The Island by Elin Hilderbrand: After her daughter, Chess, breaks off an engagement and her fiancé subsequently dies in a rock-climbing accident, divorcée Birdie Cousins encourages her younger daughter, Tate, and her sister, India, to join her and Chess on Tuckernack Island for a month, a time when deep secrets are soon revealed.

The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve
The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve: At a literary festival in Toronto, Linda Fallon is reunited with famous poet Thomas Janes, with whom she had an affair at age seventeen and then again at age twenty-seven, but her life is drastically different this time around.

The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani
The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani: This intricately woven tapestry of love and family, war and loss, risk and destiny follows star-crossed lovers Enza, a practical beauty, and Ciro, a strapping mountain boy, who, after their first meeting in the Italian Alps, find their destinies inexplicably entwined as they build their lives in America.
