March's Most Exciting New Releases @ The Millburn Public Library!









Dear Readers,

Today is the spring eqinox! Daffodils are in bloom, the first robins of the season have arrived, and a bunch of exciting new books are ready to burst forth. In keeping with the time of year, returns and rebirths are a recurring theme this month. We have a long lost novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a re-examination of Huck Finn by Percival Everett, and an inquiry into The Book of Genesis by Marilynne Robinson. Beloved authors Tana French, James Patterson, and Lisa Scottoline return with new thrillers and established literary authors Christina Henriquez and Tea Obreht have new offerings this spring.

Please note: Items released later in the month may not be in the catalog yet. Check the catalog closer to the release date to place a hold on those titles.
