[ARCHIVED] New Book Spotlight for October

The Cat With Seven Names reveals how a stray cat transforms a neighborhood of strangers into a family of neighbors. Written by Tony Johnston and beautifully illustrated by Christine Davenier, this charming book was voted Staff Favorite of the Month. (J/E/Johnston).

Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s latest creepy thriller features Dan Torrence from 1977’s The Shining. (F/King).

Like Stephen King, Terry McMillan’s Who asked you? revisits characters from her 1992 bestseller Waiting to exhale (later made into a movie directed by Forest Whitaker and starring Whitney Houston). (F/McMillan).

Wil Haygood’s The Butler: a witness to history not only is a biography of Eugene Allen, White House butler for over 30 years, but also the story of the making of the Lee Daniels film The Butler, based on Mr. Allen’s life and starring Forest Whitaker. (B/Allen).

Collaborators Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard (Killing Kennedy & Killing Lincoln) chronicle the events leading to the death of Jesus of Nazareth in Killing Jesus. (232.96/O)

Thoroughly researched and beautifully written by Pulitzer Prize winning physician and author Sheri Fink, Five days at Memorial: life and death in a storm-ravaged hospital is a tragic, uncomfortable, but thought provoking read. Fink’s account of Hurricane Katrina’s impact on New Orleans Memorial Hospital’s patients, staff, and resulting controversy, is as difficult to put down as it is to read. Brilliant! (362.1109/F).

Christmas on 4th Street is a little pre-holiday treat for fans of Susan Mallery’s ”Fool’s Gold “series. (F/Mallery). Devotees of Sherryl Woods’ “Chesapeake Shores” can enjoy a bit of fun as well with A seaside Christmas. (F/Woods).
