The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan C. BradleyThe Dead in Their Vaulted Arches
“Flavia de Luce is still on the loose! This time, the almost-twelve-year-old prodigy explores some tantalizing mysteries involving her own family. Flavia uncovers surprising secrets about the characters we know and love and meets some fascinating new people, including a precocious distant cousin. You’ll enjoy seeing new depths in Flavia–this novel takes the series in an exciting direction.” – Nancy Russell, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Columbus, OH

Lost Lake By Sarah Addison AllenLost Lake
“I was thrilled to find out that Sarah Addison Allen had a new book out, and it did not disappoint. Allen’s trademark magic is woven throughout the story and can be found in the lake, the town, and the people, but at its heart, this story is about finding home—something we can all relate to.”- Ally Watkins, Central MS Regional Library System, Pearl, MS

 

The Days Of Anna Madrigal By Armistead MaupinThe Days Of Anna Madrigal
“So good to see all these beloved characters again! And we finally get the true story of Anna Madrigal. If you’re either a fan of the Tales of the City series, Burning Man or both, this is a fun Sunday-afternoon kind of book.” – Jenne Bergstrom, San Diego County Library, San Diego, CA

 

 

Orfeo: A Novel by Richard PowersOrfeo
“Experimental music and genetic engineering? Heady stuff indeed, but what is most remarkable about this thought-provoking journey is how intensely it makes you feel about human creativity, experience, and the enigmatic fugitive Peter Els, whose flight from an uncomprehending world anchors the narrative. A perfect introduction to this brilliant but sometimes forbidding author.” – David Wright, Seattle Public Library, Seattle, WA
