New this week...

We have some new fiction titles by some well-known authors on our shelf this week:
The book with the biggest buzz in Alaska is The Yiddish Policeman's Union, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon. Set in an alternate-reality Sitka, this murder mystery explores the story possibilities of a Jewish homeland (Alyeska) situated on Baranof Island after World War II.
Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club) delivers Rant, a fictional oral biography of a (possible) serial killer. Fun stuff.
We also have the latest in James ‘Prolific’ Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club: The 6th Target. All three copies are currently checked out, but you can place a hold online for the next available one.
For something a little lighter, we have Tumbling Blocks, another mystery starring quilt museum maven Benni Harper.
Look also for new titles by David Baldacci (Simple Genius), Anita Shreve (Body Surfing) and Amanda Quick (The River Knows). Memorial Day is coming up, and it’s time to kick-start your summer reading.
