September new books

We have some good news! We will be able to purchase some new books shortly for you. We did manage to get a few for you. Library volunteer Christine has kindly reviewed a couple of them. In Catherine Chidgey’s prize winning book “The Axeman’s Carni-val”, a magpie is witness to events on a failing, high country farm. As the magpie learns to “parrot” the profanities of farm hands, he becomes the cause of irritation and humour. Yet there is a dark thread running through this story. When the carnival is over, will a bird with 100,000 followers on Twitter be hero or anti-hero? Social media also plays a role in Eleanor Catton’s “Birnam Wood”, a psychological thriller. When a group of guerilla gardeners meet an American billionaire, ideals and intentions are tested with devastating consequences. And it is here at last – Lucinda Riley’s “Atlas: the story of Pa Salt” We look forward to seeing you all soon. Barbara Field
