With its gracious homes and tree-lined streets, Ansley Park is one of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods. But in one gleaming mansion, in a teenager’s lavish bedroom, a girl has been savagely murdered. And in the hallway, her horrified mother stands amid shattered glass, having killed her daughter’s attacker with her bare hands. 

Detective Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is here only to do a political favor; the murder site belongs to the Atlanta police. But Trent soon sees something that the cops are missing, something in the trail of blood, in a matrix of forensic evidence, and in the eyes of the shell-shocked mother. Within minutes, Trent is taking over the case—and adding another one to it. He is sure that another teenage girl is missing, and that a killer is on the loose.

Armed with only fleeting clues, teamed with a female cop who has her own personal reasons for hating him, Trent has enemies all around him—and a gnawing feeling that this case, which started in the best of homes, is cutting quick and deep through the ruins of perfect lives broken wide-open: where human demons emerge with a vengeance.

New movies on the shelf this week are “Chernobyl”, “Finding Happiness”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Catfight”.  Come on in and browse through the movie collection at the Wawa Public Library!

Did you know? The 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 diversified 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. We also have an amazing replica of the Hudson Bay Co. Michipicoten Post 1725-1904!  Come on into the library to see this beautiful piece of history.  If you are interested in reading about the fur trades and the Hudson’s Bay Company come in and CHECK IT OUT! We also have a fun activity pamphlet for the children to do!  Pick up the pamphlet at the circulation desk, complete the fun activities, bring it back and show us what you have learned and get your name in for a prize package! Join us and celebrate the Hudson’s Bay 350th anniversary!

If you enjoy doing puzzles and are looking to get out of the house or meet new people, come on in to the library and join in the fun of creating a masterpiece.  We will have a puzzle set up on a roll-up canvas that can be taken out whenever someone is interested.  For more information please talk to the friendly staff at the circulation desk.
