New at the library this week

"Charity Girl" by Michael Lowenthal - a novel about a young girl sent to a detention camp for women with venereal disease by the U.S. Government during World War I.

"The Dead Fathers Club" by Matt Haig - a funny quirky tale with dead, murdered fathers appearing to adolescent sons - shades of Hamlet.

"Ten Days in the Hills" by Jane Smiley - newest work of Pulitzer Prize winning Smiley, a Hollywood tale with Boccaccio as a model.

"Greatness: the Rise of Tom Brady" by the writers of the Boston Globe. His off-the-field escapades may have tarnished some of his luster, but he's still the youngest quarterback ever to win a superbowl.

"Portfolio Life: the New Path to Work, Purpose and Passion after 50" by David Corbett with Richard Higgins.
