Published: Viking - October 15th, 2019

Staff recommended. Timothy Egan is in search of faith.
in his uniquely engrossing writing style, he weaves together the very personal story of his pilgrimage; the story of his Irish Catholic family and its relationship with the church; as well as stories about the history of the Christian faith that tie in with the cathedrals and towns along the Via Francigena.
The fact that this is his most personal book to date, makes it even more compelling. What a great read! ~ Elaine

Staff recommended: It is a WWII story in which a mother does everything she can to save her daughter.
And in the hands of Alice Hoffman it is so much more.
She imbues the story with the magical the mystical the fantastical and elevates the story to a separate level as only Alice Hoffman can. ~ Elaine

Olive, Again (Oprah's Book Club): A Novel Cover Image
$27.00
ISBN: 9780812996548
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Random House - October 15th, 2019

Staff recommended. Olive is back.  She is still honest to a cringing fault and much more compassionate than she is given credit for. It is slightly darker than the first book, as Olive and other townspeople, face aging, loss and loneliness.  Against her better judgement, she embraces some happiness and accepts some love. Her willingness to face an uncertain future with her usual wry humor and forthrightness, makes us love her all over again. Thank you Elizabeth Strout for allowing Olive loose for a few more chapters! ~ Elaine

Anonymous author’s ‘Warning’ portrays a presidency on the brink.
The author — who first captured attention in 2018 as the unidentified author of a New York Times opinion column — describes Trump careening from one self-inflicted crisis to the next.

The November 7, 2019 Seattle Times article here,

The anonymous essay appeared in The New York Times in September 2018 and said that many within the administration were actively blocking some of Trump’s orders. No one has named the official despite widespread speculation and Trump’s own suggestion that the author’s identity be investigated.
