The library's head of public service, Sarah Pardi, recommends The Overstory by Richard Powers: If you are like me, you have a favorite type of tree. Or perhaps you think there is nothing better than the smell of pines in the forest. Which is why I borrowed The Overstory by Richard Powers when I saw it available on Libby. Powers does a beautiful job of describing the modest tree's importance in our ever evolving world. But this is not just a story about trees. It is the story of humans and their connection to the natural world--a relationship that is quite complicated, at times moving and ultimately concerning. Access this title here.
Circulation assistant Cathy Pepin-Toussaint recommends The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. This is a thrilling tale of two sisters living in occupied France during World War II. Vianne and Isabelle are very different in personality and temperament, but they both find the courage to join the Resistance and fight the Nazis invading their country. If you love historical fiction, you will not be able to put this book down.
