Mother Love

Sherman Alexie is one of my favorite authors--one of those authors you associate with a pivotal time in your life. My first introduction to him was many years ago when I was living far away from the Pacific Northwest and feeling completely lost. A dear friend wrote me a letter and included a photocopy of a story she had just read in The New Yorker. The story was called "Indian Country" and it was the best thing I had read in a long time.

Mysteries with a Science Fiction Twist for your Next Reading Cocktail

Are you a Sci Fi fan, but ready for a new twist in your reading? Are you an avid Mystery reader, but looking for something a little different – but not TOO different?  “Genreblending” between Science Fiction and other genres isn’t new, but it’s a lot bigger now and offers just the right mix for some people, whether as a temporary diversion or a newly discovered passion. Science Fiction and Fantasy have been together a long time, but want to try Sci Fi and Mystery? Read on!

#BlackHistoryMonth Reads

If you're looking for Black History Month reads this February, there's some great web resources out there! One of my new favorites is using the hashtag #1000BlackGirlBooks, which should lead you to the story of Marley Dias. Dias is an 11 year old frustrated at not seeing black girls as characters in books she's assigned at school. She decided to do a book drive collecting 1000 books where black girls are the main character.

The Right Mystery for You Awaits

People who don’t read mysteries sometimes think they are all alike. Nothing is worse than looking forward to that new mystery, and getting home to read, only to find it’s not “your kind of mystery” at all! Horrors! Not even worth trying. No way.

We in libraryland have ways of describing the different types of mysteries to help you find just what you want. If you run out of everything by an author you love, we can help you find authors from the same kind of mystery appeal. My favorite is a reference book called “Genreflecting”, by Diana Tixier Herald.
