Staff Monthly Picks

Liz’s Pick this month is “Some we Love, Some we Hate, Some we Eat : Why it’s so hard to think straight about animals” by Hal Herzog, a maverick scientist who co-founded the field of anthrozoology offers a controversial, thoughtprovoking, and unprecedented exploration of the psychology behind the inconsistent and often paradoxical ways we think, feel, and behave towards animals.Jean finished in four days, “Cross Fire” by James Patterson Detective Alex Cross and Bree Stone's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington DC's most corrupt: a dirty congressman and an underhanded lobbyist. Next, the elusive gunman begins picking off other crooked insiders, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?

Good Reads

In the years preceding the United States’ entrance into World War II, radio journalist Frankie Bard broadcasts from London during the air raids. Among her listeners are several residents of a small Cape Cod town. Writing in starkly descriptive prose, novelist Blake offers a revealing and intimate look at this moment in history, moving back and forth between small town America and war-torn Europe and intertwining the narratives of three unique women along the way. Join Mercer County Library’s newest Book Discussion GROUP meeting the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. Please pre-register by calling 419-586-4442 or emailing Connie Gray at grayco@oplin.org
