MARCH 19 CASE HISTORIES BY KATE ATKINSON Private detective Jackson Brodie—ex-cop, and weekend dad—takes on three cases involving past crimes. The first case introduces two sisters who, after the death of their vile father, look again into the disappearance of their sister Olivia, last seen at three years old. A retired lawyer next enlists Jackson’s aid in solving the brutal killing of his grown daughter 10 years earlier. In the third case file, the sibling of an infamous ax-bludgeoner seeks a reunion with her niece, who as a baby was a witness to murder. Jackson’s reluctant persistence heats up these cold cases and leads him to reassess his own painful history. Excellent writing, unexpected humor and amazing plot twists. APRIL 23 UNLESS BY CAROL SHIELD The oldest daughter of 44-year-old Reta Winters suddenly, inexplicably, drops out of college and ends up on a Toronto street corner panhandling, with a cardboard sign around her neck that reads “goodness.” The quiet comforts of Reta’s small-town life and the constancy of her feminist perspective sustain her hope that her daughter will snap out of this, whatever “this” is. Reta Winters is an inventive character whose thought-provoking commentary on the ties between writing, love, art and family are constantly compelling. MAY 21 PRIDE AND PREJUDICE BY JANE AUSTEN We will read the classic novel and then watch the most current movie adaptation with a “Jane Austen Tea Party” beforehand.

BOOK GROUP

Fiction Book Review
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield Enjoy a good ghost story with this closely plotted, clever foray into a world of secrets, confused identities, lies, and half-truths. There are two heroines here: Vida Winter, a famous author, whose life story is coming to an end, and Margaret Lea, a young, unworldly, bookish girl who is a bookseller in her father’s shop. Vida has been confounding her biographers and fans for years by giving everybody a different version of her life, each time swearing it’s the truth. Because of a biography that Margaret has written about brothers, Vida chooses Margaret to tell her story, all of it, for the first time. Gravewriter by Mark Arsenault Set in Providence, R.I., Arsenault’s new series introduces down-on-hisluck obituary writer Billy Povich. Deeply in debt to loan sharks and still reeling from the death of his exwife a year earlier, Billy finds distraction from his woes while serving as a juror in the trial of Peter Shadd, a punk, who shot dead career criminal Garrett Nickel, in an escape attempt the pair made from prison. What looks like a clear case of murder develops holes as Billy looks closer. Then the only other juror who questions the case takes a nosedive out of a parking garage, and an unknown man in a fedora begins dogging Billy. This noir-ish thriller has some unusual supporting characters as well as an unusual plot twist at the end.

Non-Fiction Book Review
The South Beach Diet Heart Program by Arthur Agatston, MD. Dr. Agatston outlines a program to keep you hearthealthy. In part one he talks about the problems of a health care system that relies too much on medical procedures on not on prevention. In part two he presents the preventions strategies that has kept his patients out of the hospital and off the operating table. The Great Lakes Water Wars by Peter Annin The great lakes are one of the world’s largest reservoirs and more than forty million people live in their basin. How that water is used by, or diverted from, those people are discussed in this book. The author feels like the water wars are coming and we need to be ready. NO, Why Kids-of All AgesNeed to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It by David Walsh, PhD. This author makes the case that by saying No when you need to; you help your children develop skills such as self-reliance, self-discipline, respect and the ability to delay gratification. You can assess and improve your relationship with your kids and make sense of limits for different ages.

Youth Department
Do you ever wonder what the Youth Librarians are doing when they are not helping you find something? There are many behind-the-scenes functions and responsibilities that happen that you may not be aware of. Some of the functions in the Youth Department are highlighted in books on the library shelf below. There was not enough room on the book shelf to show everything we do or all the steps that are involved with the various functions. For example, ordering books is a multi-step process: 1. We order from The Library Network, online resources, professional reading recommendations, and your recommendations. 2. We check to see if we already own the item or if the item is already on order. 3. Read any reviews if available. 4. Determine if the item is a valuable or necessary addition to our collection. 5. Submit orders. 6. Enter orders into our order database. 7. When the items arrive, we assign shelf locations and call numbers to the items. 8. The items then go to the Processing Department. As you can tell, almost everything we do involves many steps. Therefore, we do not sit around and read just for fun. If we are reading, it is to keep ourselves familiar with the collection. Sometimes we may look as if we are not doing anything, but we may be deep in thought thinking of future programs, etc. We could be discussing with other librarians details of upcoming programs. Or we could be lending an ear to a child who wants to chat. All of these things go together to make the Youth Department a better place for YOU!
