STAFF PICKS FOR ADULTS

Finding Camlann

by Sean Pidgeon
This is an absorbing, intriguing novel about the search for the historical King Arthur — from the dusty libraries of Oxford to the forbidding mountains of Wales. Fun, erudite and deeply romantic in the best way.
— Tom Gartner

The Dude And The Zen Master

by Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman
This little book really has something to say about enjoying life while enjoying the comparison of Zen with the life of The Dude character. It’s a reinforcing of values that make life good and worth living. In other words, it’s an upper. Keep rowing gently down the stream!
— B. Dito


STAFF PICKS FOR KIDS

by Leigh Bordugo (ages 12 and up)
