Check It Out @ The Library- December 14, 2017

Power and Empire” by Marc Cameron. “Past Perfect” by Danielle Steel.

New on the Shelf

“Power and Empire” by Marc Cameron.  Tensions are high between President Jack Ryan and the Chinese government.  A terrorist attack on an American destroyer, an attack on an oil platform, and an American spy ship that may just be delivered to China thanks to a storm all seem to be the opening moves in an international game of chess.  Moreover, looming in the distance is Ryan’s coming confrontation with Premier Zhou at the G20 negotiations.  Meanwhile on the home front a random traffic stop uncovers a Chinese spy that has information that ties everything together, if there’s enough time. 

“Past Perfect” by Danielle Steel.  Sybil is a cutting-edge interior designer, Blake is a top business analyst, and together they define the term “power couple”.  Living in Manhattan with their three children, the Gregory’s live a life of order and privilege.  When Blake takes a job as the CEO of a new social media startup in San Francisco, the whole family is whisked across the country to a new home- a 20th century Pacific Heights mansion.  Built by a prominent banking family and abandoned for years, the house is an incredible reminder of past elegance and decadence, filled with the memories of the owners and perhaps a bit more.

If you need a little help to get into the holiday spirit, we have displays of Christmas books and DVDs for children and adults.  And if you need some inspiration for Christmas dinner we have cookbooks for many tastes and diets as well.  

As the seasons change, don’t forget to capture that natural beauty for the Seasons of Wright County photo contest.  The submission deadline is February 28, more information and sign-up sheets are available at the library and online on our website.
