Featured Title: The Graveyard Game by Kage Baker.
The Graveyard Game is the fourth novel in the Company series.
Kirkus gave it a starred review, saying “By turns hilarious, terrifying, sad, and provocative, and always utterly intriguing. If there's a better time-travel series out there, go find it."
Political Issues Book Club, Tuesday, August 27,7:00 pm; Storytime Room
Featured Title: The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn't What It Used to Be by Moises Naim
Award-winning columnist and former "Foreign Policy" editor Moises Naim illuminates the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor. Drawing on provocative, original research, Naim shows how the antiestablishment drive of micropowers can topple tyrants, dislodge monopolies, and open remarkable new opportunities, but also lead to chaos and paralysis.
