Between the Covers – February 5

New books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are “The Water Dancer” by Ta-Nehisi Coates, “The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell and “Final Option” by Clive Cussler.

STAFF PICKS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY ARE: “Fractured” by Karin Slaughter and this week’s feature is “Texas Ranger” by James Patterson. From the book jacket:

Officer Rory Yates is called home to settle deadly scores.

Rory Yates’s skill and commitment to the badge have seen him rise through the ranks in the Texas Ranger division, but it came at a cost – his marriage.

When he receives a worrying phone call from his ex-wife, Anne, Rory speeds to what used to be their marital home. He arrives to a horrifying crime scene and a scathing accusation: he is named a suspect in Anne’s murder.

Rory’s only choice is to find the killer himself. He risks his job, his pride, his reputation among everyone he loves to pursue the truth.

Yates follows the Ranger creed – never to surrender. That code just might bring him out alive.

 350 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE HUDSON’S BAY COMPANY – Hudson’s Bay Company is the oldest company in North America.  It was created in 1670 when the King of England granted a royal charter to investors interested in trading with Indigenous peoples for furs. Although trade relationships were often unequal, HBC posts were an important part of life for many Indigenous families for centuries.  In the 19th century, HBC diversifies its interests, becoming the department store chain that Canadians know today.

The Wawa Public Library has a display of books and articles that are available for checkout. If you are interested in reading about the fur trades and the Hudson’s Bay Company come into the Wawa Public Library. Join us and celebrate the Hudson’s Bay 350thanniversary!
