Spot-Lit (August, 2012)

Among the other standouts in the August issue of Spot-Lit are not-to-be-missed new books by Ivan Doig, Louise Penny, and Charles Cumming, a host of great debuts (see especially The Dog Stars, The Orchardist, and A Killing in the Hills), and titles featuring the supernatural world of ghostly hauntings (The Broken Ones) and book magic (Libriomancer). The Pacific Northwest is the setting for three of this month's selections: Goodbye for Now, The Orchardist, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette? Click the titles below to read more about them in the library catalog or to place them on hold. Happy reading!
