Feel free to start using the new Library Return today. All types of materials welcome! It's Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer-the sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at Madaket Beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom's wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate.
But it's going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony-and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash interviews the bride, the groom, the groom's famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield-and no couple is perfect. Guess how you can best celebrate today? Here is what many other people will apparently be reading in case you need ideas. Flood waters are rising across the province.
In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter.
Summary Bibliography: James E. Gunn
As the rivers rise and crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos. Our latest awesome list features more great titles your fellow readers would love for you to check out and enjoy. To try some titles someone, somewhere, thought you ought NOT to risk reading, try one of our black wrapped Banned Blind Date books from the display across from New Fiction!
From murder and matchstick men to all-consuming fires, painted women, and Great Lakes disasters--and the wide-eyed public who could not help but gawk at it all--"Milwaukee Mayhem" uncovers the little-remembered and rarely told history of the underbelly of a Midwestern metropolis. Author Matthew J. Prigge presents these stories as they were recounted to the public in the newspapers of the era, using the vivid and often grim language of the times to create an engaging and occasionally chilling narrative of a forgotten Milwaukee.
Banned Books Week is next week! While some people may think that book banning is no longer a major issue, books of all levels continue to see challenges in both public and private institutions right up to TODAY. Banned Books Week brings attention to the issues of intellectual freedom, cencorship, and the power of words. Novels aren't the only titles that get banned: non-fiction is often challenged, as well.
In fact, as innocent as it appears, the dictionary has even come under censor fire! Both American Heritage and Merriam Webster have been banned in various libraries and schools. In , for example, the Anchorage School Board banned the American Heritage Dictionary for its "objectionable" entries — particularly slang words, including "bed," "knocker," and "balls.
We won't be wrapping up our dictionaries, but watch our Blind Date display as some other challenged titles work their way in. And don't forget to fill out a Rate Your Date card for a chance to win a prize in October! The following is their top 10, based on numbers of challenges.

When she was a little girl, Michelle Robinson's world was the South Side of Chicago, where she and her brother, Craig, shared a bedroom in their family's upstairs apartment and played catch in the park, and where her parents, Fraser and Marian Robinson, raised her to be outspoken and unafraid. But life soon took her much further afield, from the halls of Princeton, where she learned for the first time what if felt like to be the only black woman in a room, to the glassy office tower where she worked as a high-powered corporate lawyer--and where, one summer morning, a law student named Barack Obama appeared in her office and upended all her carefully made plans.
Here, for the first time, Michelle Obama describes the early years of her marriage as she struggles to balance her work and family with her husband's fast-moving political career. She takes us inside their private debate over whether he should make a run for the presidency and her subsequent role as a popular but oft-criticized figure during his campaign. Narrating with grace, good humor, and uncommon candor, she provides a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of her family's history-making launch into the global limelight as well as their life inside the White House over eight momentous years--as she comes to know her country and her country comes to know her.
In telling her story with honesty and boldness, she issues a challenge to the rest of us: Who are we and who do we want to become?
