Be safe out there. COVID-19 is more prevalent in our community – wash your hands, practice social distancing and wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.

The Adult Book Discussion Group will meet on Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. in the West Room. The book this time is “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein.

We have some new biographies: “Love, Zac” by Reid Forgrave, about small-town football and the life and death of an American boy; “Me and Sister Bobbie” by Willie Nelson, the untold story of Willie Nelson and his sister, Bobbie, who supported each other through personal tragedies and triumphs; and a large print biography, “Everything Beautiful in its Time” by Jenna Bush Hager. “Love, Zac” is also available as a book on CD.

New adult fiction titles are “Troubles in Paradise” by Elin Hilderbrand; “The Edge of Lost” by Kristina McMorris; and “Time for Mercy” by John Grisham, book number three in the Jack Brigance Series.

Non-fiction new to the shelves is “Dancing with the Octopus: a memoir” by Debora Harding, written by a kidnap victim that survived her ordeal. From Amazon – Dexterously shifting between the past and present, Debora Harding untangles the incident of her kidnapping and escape from unexpected angles, offering a vivid, intimate portrait of one family’s disintegration in the 1970s Midwest. Written with dark humor and the pacing of a thriller, Dancing with the Octopus is a literary tour de force and a groundbreaking narrative of reckoning, recovery, and the inexhaustible strength it takes to survive.

Other new non-fiction items are “Pluses and Minuses: how math makes the world more manageable” by Stefan Buijsman; “The Butterfly Effect: insects and the making of the modern world” by Edward D. Melilo; “Outbreak!: 50 tales of epidemics that terrorized the world” by Beth Skwarecki; “The Ultimate Guide to Tractors” by Jim Glastonbury; “Becoming Ginger Rogers: how ballroom dancing made me a happier woman, better partner and smarter CEO” by Patrice Tanaka; and two cookbooks, “The MeatEater Fish & Game Cookbook: recipes and techniques for every hunter and angler” by Steven Rinella; and “The Big Book of Cidermaking: expert techniques for fermenting and flavoring your favorite hard cider” by Christopher Shockey.
