GIDDINGS LIBRARY NEWS CORNER

By Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library offers coffee in the foyer as you visit the library.

Check out our new books, as well as our other collections. The Woodcutter by Reginald Hill is a treat that both lovers of the Dalziel and Pascoe series and newcomers to the always masterful work of Reginald Hill will devour. Mr. Monk On Patrol by Lee Goldberg is an all new original mystery about Adrian Monk as he investigates a series of robberies. In One Person by John Irving is a tale inspired by the U. S. AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s. It follows the experiences of individuals including the bisexual narrator who is torn by devastating losses and whose perspectives on tolerance and love are shaped by awareness of what might have been.

The First Dance by Richard S. Wheeler takes beloved mountain man Barnaby Skye’s family to its third generation in North America. Dirk, the son of Barnaby Skye, is perplexed by his wife’s disappearance after their wedding ceremony, and accompanies the Metes people during their painful relocation to Canada.

We have several non-fiction books that are interesting. Pinched by Don Peck is a fascinating and harrowing exploration of our dramatic economic climate. It presents cautionary predictions about American life in the aftermath of the recession that describes longterm consequences being faced by Americans from every walk of life. Consent of the Networked by Rebecca Mackinnon argues that it is time to fight for our rights before they are sold, legislated, programmed, and engineered away. Guilded Lives, Fatal Voyage by Hugh Brewster takes us behind the paneled doors of the Titanic’s elegant private suites to present compelling , memorable portraits of her most notable passengers.
