Plot summary: existential crisis of the Lost Generation post WWI. I’ve probably re-read this book more than any other in my life.

Fascinating and macabre, this nonfiction book reads like a gripping novel. The audio version is delightful.

Career of Evil

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraigth

Reviewew by Allison Palmgren, Technology Librarian:
As the third installment of the Cormoran Strike series, it is similar to its predecessors; a modern mystery with the feel of a classic detective story. Like the first two, “Cuckoo’s Calling” and “The Silkworm”, this novel follows the story of a somewhat surly war veteran turned detective and his assistant Robin. They characters are beyond relatable and the story keeps reads guessing until the end. I can hardly wait to see what happens in book #4!

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Review by Gail Wright
This is an excellent book which encompasses many topics such as poverty, alcoholism, love of family, need for education etc…and how a family embraces these challenges as they persevere to rise above their difficulties and find ways to enjoy life. Definitely worth reading or re-reading if it’s been awhile!
