HOT BOOKS

  • THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT by Drew Daywalt; pictures by Oliver Jeffers

    This is a new picture book and it’s already a bookseller favorite. Duncan sits down to color, but finds there are no crayons in his crayon box, only notes from the crayons, saying, "I Quit." It seems Red is tired of only being the color of fire engines and Santa Claus. Yellow is tired of being the sun, and blue wants to be more than the ocean. So Duncan decides to follow the crayons' suggestions. You'll see his delightful handiwork on the last page.
  • INDIAN COOKING UNFOLDED by Raghavan Iyer

    If Indian food is your passion, this is a cookbook you’ll enjoy. It’s subtitled: A Master Class in Indian Cooking, with 100 Easy Recipes Using 10 Ingredients or Less. The instructions are easy to follow and the ingredients are readily available in regular grocery stores. You’ll learn how to make such delights as Spicy Indian Omelets, Minty Cardamon Shrimp Salad, Avocado Pomegranate Dip with Plantain Chips, Raisin-Stuffed Lamb Burgers, Cashew Pistachio Bars and dozens of other delicious foods. The author is the winner of the IACP Award of Excellence for Cooking Teacher of the Year. You’ll be in good hands following his recipes!
  • LIGHT OF THE WORLD by James Lee Burke

    A reader doesn’t even need to know the concept of a James Lee Burke crime novel to know that the book will be enjoyed. It’s a given! The intelligent prose, the intricacies of the plot, the lively dialogue, the underlining thread of good versus evil, the respect for humanity, and the elegance of description are always found in his novels. We’ll tell you this much, however. This book is set in Montana when Louisiana Sheriff’s Detective Dave Robicheaux and his longtime friend and partner, Clete Purcel, are vacationing. Trouble, in the person of the most diabolical villain Dave and Cleve have ever known, finds them there embroiling them in a deadly struggle.
  • THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB: A TRUE STORY by Lily Koppel

    If you experienced life in the 1960s in America, you were likely captivated by the daring accomplishments of our first astronauts who were making world-wide news with their exploration into space. The first group was known as the Mercury Seven, and America was fascinated with them and their families. In fact, their wives became our first reality stars. They knew the dangers their husbands were facing, and yet they supported and encouraged them and, very importantly, each other. This is their unique story.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22; 7-8 PM @ The Greene

Children’s author DAVID LUBAR, who has written In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, Invasion of the Road Weenies and others, will introduce his newest book, My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie.  Due to a strange science experiment gone wrong, 10 year-old Nathan is doused with a serum and transforms into a zombie.  But he discovers he likes being half-dead.  He doesn’t need to eat, bathe or sleep, which helps him work on his video game skills.  And his new tolerance for pain leads to athletic stardom and makes worrying about bullies a thing of the past.  Nathan can win every gross-out contest and is becoming slightly popular with his peers.  Does he really want his friends to help find him a cure or does he prefer his wacky zombie life?
