Welcome to our holiday list of new book arrivals here at the Wead. Four new biographies grace our shelves this week. They  run the gamut from “Watch me” by the glamorous Angelica Huston to  “41” by George W. Bush, an account of his father, our 41st president.  The latest Danielle Steele novel, Pegasus, has arrived so call now and reserve this popular new book, if you’d like. You can also request any of our books by clicking on Log in, Search and Renew in the right sidebar and having handy your library card.
