HOT BOOKS

  • THE FIREMAN by Joe Hill

    Joe Hill, the master of suspense and horror, is back with his most ambitious novel yet. Dragonscale, a deadly spore which causes its victims to burst into flames, is sweeping across the world. For nurse Harper Willowes, survival doesn't just mean saving herself, but the baby she is carrying. A harrowing tale of hope in the midst of darkness, The Fireman is sure to please any fans of horror, apocalyptic, or dystopian literature.
  • GAME OF CROWNS: ELIZABETH, CAMILLA, KATE AND THE THRONE by Christopher Andersen

    Master biographer Christopher Anderson, author of William and Kate and The Day Diana Died, once again takes us into the “behind the scenes” world at the royal palace (complete with photographs) and gives us a glimpse of the relationships and rivalries of Queen Elizabeth, Camilla Parker Bowles, Dutchess of Cornwall, and Princess Kate. If you are spellbound by the royals, you’ll no doubt, discover things you never knew in this book.
  • HAMILTON: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL (Vocal Selections) by Lin-Manuel Miranda

    17 selections from the critically acclaimed musical about Alexander Hamilton which debuted on Broadway in August 2015 to unprecedented advanced box office sales. Our collection features 17 selections in piano/vocal format from the music penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda, including: Alexander Hamilton * Burn * Dear Theodosia * Hurricane * It's Quiet Uptown * My Shot * One Last Time * Satisfied * That Would Be Enough * Washington on Your Side * You'll Be Back * and more. It also includes a biography of Lin-Manuel Miranda.
  • THE CODE OF THE EXTRAORDINARY MIND by Vishen Lakhiani

    This New York Times bestseller is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything including our ideas of love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more, which we inherit and pass on from our generation to the next.

MARGARET PETERSON HADDIX TO VISIT

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13; 7 PM

Award-winning children’s author MARGARET PETERSON HADDIX will introduce Children of Exile, the first book in her new middle grade trilogy. For the past twelve years, adults called “Freds” have raised Rosi, her younger brother Robo, and the other children of their town, saying it is too dangerous for them to stay with their parents. But now they are all being sent back. Why? Since Rosi is the oldest, all the younger kids are looking to her for answers to questions she can’t answer. She’d always trusted the “Freds” completely, but now she’s not so sure. And now that she’s home with her real parents, she’s even more confused. Home is nothing like she expected. Something is terribly wrong. But what is it? SIMON & SCHUSTER

Ms. Haddix has also written The Missing series and The Shadow Children series. You can visit her at HaddixBooks.com.
