Chen, Mike. “A Beginning at the End.” Almost everyone died six years ago when the world pandemic wiped out virtually the entire world population, but Rob, Moira, Sunny and Krista have found comfort in one another. While other survivors join hippie communes or wasteland gangs, their little group sticks together in post apocalyptic San Francisco trying to make the best of a really bad situation. (FIC CHE)

Chute, Carolyn. “The Recipe for Revolution.” Bree is living on “The Settlement” in remote Maine when she and a group of her friends form The True Maine Militia. Bree puts all of her ideas into a manifesto, which ends up in the wrong hands, specifically those of a wealthy man who believes the cult is planning to rise up and fight the rich. It isn’t long before “The Settlement” is at the center of the public’s wrath. (FIC CHU)

Freeman, Brian. “Thief River Falls.” Lisa rarely leaves her house anymore. Since her whole family has died, which she refers to as the Dark Star, Lisa really feels more comfortable being secluded in her little cabin in the woods. So it’s really odd when a young boy shows up on her doorstep one day, running from the police. The child witnessed a murder, barely escaped death, and a trap has been set. (M FIC FRE)

Woods, Rita. “Remembrance.” A magical saga about women, slavery and rebellion. Rita Woods’ first book tells a story that spans 200 years. From modern day Ohio, Jane tells her nurse a story in Creole about Abigail, who was forced to leave her children in 1791 Haiti and move to New Orleans with her mistress, and Margot, who survived a dangerous escape from the same city in 1857. (FIC WOO)

Non-Fiction

Axelrod, Howard. “The Stars in Our Pockets: Getting Lost and Sometimes Found in the Digital Age.” Humans have adapted for centuries as our brains have been exposed to new surroundings. But the world is different now. We live in two realities: the natural world and the digital world, and our brain adapts in each of these worlds differently. Author Axelrod believes the brain is losing range as we veer away from the natural. (303.483 AXE)

Goldfarb, Bruce. “18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Lee and the Invention of Modern Forensics.” Frances grew up in a wealthy Chicago family in the 1870s.

Instead, Frances created tiny death scenes in dollhouses that became the first models used in forensic training and are still used today. (B Lee)

Moorehead, Caroline. “A House in the Mountains: The Women Who Liberated Italy from Fascism.” Among the Italians during WWII who joined the Resistance, Bianca, Frida, Ava and Silvia lived secretly in the mountains of Turin.

Oliver, Jamie. “Ultimate Veg: Easy & Delicious Meals for Everyone.” You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy the delicious dishes in Jamie Oliver’s newest cookbook; in fact, they are arguably so good you might not even miss eating meat. There are recipes for everything from pies to burgers and the variety is outstanding. How about a big bowl of Summer Tagiatelli with basil and almond pesto with cheese toasties on the side?
