New arrivals, week of August 24, 2016

If you are like many parents, you are looking forward to the first day of school, A LOT! The children will leave Mom and Dad a quiet home in the wake of the school bus. Could that be a great time to cozy up with a warm cup of  tea and start a new book? We think so! We have a really interesting, diverse group of new listings this week. Biographies of Helen Gurley Brown, Patricia Hearst and Jaycee Dugard show three very different women, meeting unique challenges. We have several new non-fiction options but one particularly intriguing book is called “Utopia Drive” and it’s a study of the many Utopian societies that have existed in the United States over our history. From the Shakers to the Oneida, NY community this enjoyable read underscores our Constitution and the guaranteed right of free expression and religion.
