New Arrivals Week of 4-6-2016

courtesy newscientist.com

So many new books this week and many are from our favorite writers. We have several new biographies, including a delightful work from Rabbi Susan Silverman about raising her family.  Fiction favorites, Karen Robards, Phillip Kerr and Karen Kingsbury are just waiting for our patrons to read their latest novels. Non-fiction writings cover topics  like eviction and its contribution to the cycle of poverty, investigating America’s home grown terrorists and tiny little wonder of a book, “Seven brief lessons on physics” which I personally can’t wait to read. Here is our latest grouping and we hope there are books that you can’t wait to read as well!
