New arrivals, week of April 10, 2017

And why on earth would a listing of our new  arrivals start with a photo of a luscious banana cream pie? We have a genre of books here at the Wead Library that are quite popular but you may not have heard of . They are called “Cozies”.  Wikipedia provides us with a description, “Cozy mysteries, also referred to as “cozies”, are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community.”   Books can revolve around tea houses, wineries, bakeries,  and other yummy venues and often the pages are populated with recipes from the author. They have a loyal following and are hugely  popular. Authors of Cozy mysteries are writers like Joanne Fluke. Mary Ellen Hughes and Kerry Greenwood. This week’s new arrivals include Joanne Fluke’s latest,  “Banana Cream Pie Murder”.  You can reserve her new book or any of our other new arrivals by clicking on Login, Search and Renew with your library card handy. You can also call one of our helpful staff at 518-483-5251 and they will gladly reserve your choices as well. Here are our other new arrivals this week.
