by Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library would like to thank everyone who made our Word Wrangler Festival a big success. We are looking forward to next year. Come by and check out our new books. The article features our large print books that are available for our patrons.

The Darling Dahlias And The Naked Ladies by Susan Witting Albert is about those who become suspicious of the newest visitors to Depression-era Darling, Alabama, rumored to be the Naughty and Nice Sisters from the Ziegfeld Frolie, who specialize in dancing nearly naked, and dig for truth when one of the pair denies the association.

Monument to Murder by Margaret Truman introduces private investigator Robert Brixton. He finds himself in the underworld of Savannah’s power elite and uncovers a secret government organization of contrast killers who perform “patriotic” assassinations. The Wild Hog Murders by Bill Crider is about Sheriff Dan Rhodes investigating a murder in Blacklin County. This investigation is complicated by angry hog hunters, a Crusading talk-show host, a bounty hunter, and the reappearances of a troublemaking motorcycle duo.

Gabby by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly with Jeffrey Zaslow reveals Congresswoman Giffords and her astronaut husband recounting her early years, their marriage, the assassination attempt that left her gravely wounded and took the lives of six others and her rehabilitation. The Undead and Undermined by Mary Janice Davidson is a vampire fiction. Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor wakes up in the morgue after a time-traveling trip, and must fight a foe with a wicked agenda.

Other large type books are: The Beach Tree by Karen White; The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie; The Paradise Prophecy by Robert Brown; Taken by Robert Crais; Heart of Evil by Heather Graham; Against All Enemies by Tom Clancey; Betrayal by Fern Michaels and Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante.
