Congratulations to Barbara Shapiro (one of the participants in the last Maynard Book Festival) – Her book The Art Forger won the 2013 New England Book Award.
A column by Alex Beam in the Globe has a list of books that you really want to read rather than the books that the critics say you should read. Showing great personal reserve, I didn’t immediately request them all from the library … but I did print off the list to use for future requests. Check out the article above to see if you are as intrigued by the titles as I am.
Just had the opportunity to read the latest book from Julie Berry – our local YA and kids author. I have liked all her titles but this one is exceptional and most of the noise I have heard about it says this will be her break out book. She’ll be at the library when it publishes in the fall – watch our website for date and details. This will be the book you want to buy for all your YA readers for the holidays. Title is All the Truth That’s in Me.
