New Arrivals, week of 10/24/14

 With two new  biographies and many more new fiction and non fiction works, the Wead Library can supply your cravings for the best and latest of the literary world. Jodi Picoult’s much anticipated work, “Leaving time: a novel” arrived this week at the Wead Library. Also in are two thrillers, John Sandford’s “Deadline” and Stuart Woods’ “Paris Match” for those who enjoy a little more mystery and intrigue in their reading lists.  Bill O’Reilley’s  “Killing Patton: the strange death of World War ll’s  most audacious general” is also here to loan to our patrons. There’s much more so let’s start with non-fiction.
