October and November are big months for high-demand author releases, and we’ve got several in the library now. For Stewart Woods fans, we have Foul Play, the latest in the Stone Barrington series. The newest Jack Reacher novel, Better Off Dead, by Lee and Andrew Child, is sure to keep the reader on their toes. John Le Carre’s, Silverview, takes place in a small English coastal town and has all of the spy activity and intrigue readers love about his previous titles. Alice Hoffman’s latest installment the Practical Magic series, The Book of Magic, continues the story of the Owens family but includes a long-lost brother. Besides, it is set in one of my favorite places – a library! Danielle Steel’s newest offering is The Butler, which spans two continents, and is a family drama interspersed with a grand love story. Richard Powers returns to the natural world in his newest title, Bewilderment. It is the story of a love between a father and son centered around the stars and planets. Lastly, The Party Crasher is Sophie Kinsella’s latest. With family drama, fabulous parties, and some romance, this story will be a light-hearted Holiday read.
New titles coming in December by some well-known authors are The Midnight Lock by Jeffery Deaver and Flying Angels by Danielle Steel. Also coming in December are Sharpe’s Assassin: Richard Sharpe and the Occupation of Paris, 1815 by Bernard Cornwell; and a new W.E.B. Griffin title, Rogue Asset.

Jance, Lucy Foley, Stephen King, J.D. Robb, and Johnathan Kellerman, Catherine Coulter, and Francine Rivers, Marie Benedict, Dean Koontz, Jayne Ann Krentz.
Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, and we have some titles either about or written by Native Americans on display. We have several titles by Sherman Alexie, Louise Erdrich, and Tony and Anne Hillerman. To learn more about the Native Americans during the development of the western United States, read the classic Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown. We have Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. Gwynne, about Quanah Parker and the Comanche tribe in Texas; Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann, and Blood and Thunder: The Epic Story of Kit Carson and the Conquest of the American West by Hamp Sides. Come by the library to check these out or place a hold on them through our app.
