Jennifer Nielsen to Visit the Middle School!

Get your party hats, people because we have an author coming to visit!

Friday, March 21st, Jennifer Nielsen will be here in the library to talk to the 6th, 7th and 8th grade!

Famous around these parts as the author of The Ascendance Trilogy!  I know many of you have read the first two, and her third (and final *sob!*) book is out so stop by the library to put it on hold.

And if you can't bear to wait while the next book about Sage comes out, never fear, we also have books from her Elliot series. 

And it gets better!!!

She will also be signing books, and you can pick up a copy of an order form in the library or check your email, I'll be attaching a copy on Friday.

New Books for February!

Happy February, everyone!  There's a nice mix this month!

How many of you read The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau?  (It's a lot like The Hunger Games, so some like it because of that and others don't).  Well, the sequel is here, Independent Study, and it's just as nail biting and twisty as the first.

What else?  The sequel to Cloak Society (super heroes and super villains doing epic battle) and Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger. This is the sequel to Etiquette & Espionage (steampunk, werewolves, vampires, finishing school and all sorts of madness), even better than the first, in my opinion.

The nonfiction, I could just swoon over.  Sevants: A Downstairs History of Britain from the Nineteenth Century to Modern Times.  This is a must read for Downton Abbey fans, or even those just interested in history and sociology.  The Nazi Hunters, winner of the 2014 Morris Award for best nonfiction.  It may be nonfiction but wow, it reads like the most exciting action adventure story ever.  With spies!

I could go on and on but I'll let you come take a look yourself.
