The past few weeks have made airplane crashes a prominent part of the daily news. But as you can see above, there can be survivors. One of our new books this week, “The Three” by Sarah Lotz, is about just that, survival after airplane accidents, shipwrecks and more. This book is particularly pertinent in light of the current news and is here for your reading pleasure. There are many more new arrivals so let’s start with fiction this week:

I was really taken by a small new non-fiction  book with the simple title of “Plattsburgh” from Kelly M. Julian. It offers wonderful photos that take you on a guided tour through the history of the city of Plattsburgh. This is not just about buildings and monuments. One of the things that struck me most about this small treasure were the portraits, most beautifully filmed by a studio called “Brush Photography”. The photographer is truly gifted and caught images of Plattsburgh’s citizens that literally glow from within. Each one was like finding a treasure.  I hope you come into the Wead Library and seek out this well done  book of area history.  You won’t regret it. Here are this week’s non-fiction selections.
