50 Books for Our Times

Debbie Pennino directed me towards another book list, by Newsweek on “50 Books for Our Times.”  It certainly gave me a few more ideas for books to pick up.  I was a bit disappointed by how few female authors they included; it looked like less than 15%.  But on the list was Snell Library favorite Geraldine Brooks and Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy, which I’m currently finishing up, and would strongly suggest.  You can pick up all three volumes at Snell!

Miss a Meet the Author talk?

The Library’s Programming and Communications Committee has been working to get our Meet the Author talks recorded and available for viewing online. On February 12, Pulitzer Prize Winner Geraldine Brooks discussed her latest novel, People of the Book. Watch along here. (And you’ll see a small cameo by me in the first minute :-))
