The New Castle Branch Library in western Colorado is having its first Book Bites program tonight. Adults have been invited to come and talk about the books they've read lately that they've liked and why.
People have been talking about how they want recommendations for the books they will like that are not necessarily bestsellers or award winners, just good solid reads that will provide pleasure and entertainment. Genre readers in particular have voiced this need. I'm looking forward to hearing about some great books tonight and sharing some of the science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, western, and historical novels I've read recently.
The Friends of the Library are providing appetizer/hors devours type refreshments and we have some new releases (including Jo Walton's The Philosopher Kings, Tana French's The Secret Place and Helen Giltrow's The Distance) as door prizes.
