January 18– Educated by Tara Westover



Educated by Tara Westover

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

faceless killers

Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell

It was a senselessly violent crime: on a cold night in a remote Swedish farmhouse an elderly farmer is bludgeoned to death, and his wife is left to die with a noose around her neck. And as if this didn’t present enough problems for the Ystad police Inspector Kurt Wallander, the dying woman’s last word is foreign, leaving the police the one tangible clue they have–and in the process, the match that could inflame Sweden’s already smoldering anti-immigrant sentiments.

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle began enchanting readers with Sherlock Holmes' deductive skills and crime fighting abilities in the late 1800s and early 1900s and the famous detective has remained popular to this day. Sherlock Holmes is a beloved fictional detective better known through Doyle's short stories. However, Holmes also appeared in several novels. "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is probably the most familiar. Meet the amazing Sherlock Holmes and his loyal companion, Dr. Watson, just as Doyle wrote them, in this carefully reconstructed reprint of a 1902 edition.
