We had a wonderful time last Wednesday with authors Michele Young-Stone and Kate Nixon at our Scarborough Faire Shops Duck! This week we welcome former CIA-agent-turned-author Patricia Stuart, who will sign copies of her thriller, Regime Change, in both Corolla on Tuesday and Duck Wednesday, and children’s author Blair Jackson [Wednesday, Duck] who will sign her children’s picture book, The Tanglewood Fox!
What We’re Reading:
Lori Jo – reading Thank You, Goodnight by Andy Abramowitz – “About a washed up musician trying to ‘get the band back together’ after a ten year absence” – also reading The Survivor by Vince Flynn and Kyle Mills – “The latest installment in the Mitch Rapp series. As good as ever, new author has carried on Vince Flynn’s legacy admirably well!!”
Meaghan – started In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume – “A lyrical weaving story of individuals in a 1950s New Jersey town beset with a high frequency of plane crashes from nearby Newark airport. Engaging, and haunting.” – and The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch, Vol. 1 by Daniel Kraus – “An absolutely epic story of an 18-year-old Chicago thug who is murdered but comes back to life. Richly written, an absorbing cast of characters, a great read for YA and adults.” – as well as The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – “The second book in the series [after The Queen of the Tearling] melds sci-fi, fantasy, and dystopia in a fast-paced, impossible to put down book. I love it!”
Melissa – is reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – “I read it back in high school, but needed a refresher before Go Set a Watchman is released next month.”
Yulia – just finished Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon – “It’s a great introduction to the success of the legendary band Sonic Youth and the private life of a person who made it. Highly recommended!”
