It’s the final week of May’s Mystery Month and Booklist has created a list of the year’s best crime novels. Crime novels all have a lot in common but they are also each distinctly different. You can find yourself in posh Irish girls’ schools or remote Asian islands. You may wonder if you’re reading a psychological thriller or espionage meets noir or some other subgenre mashup. You may not agree that Louise Penny should even be in this subgenre.
Next week from May 18th to May 21st, HML will be celebrating the 1st annual Red Nose Day. Its purpose is to fight childhood poverty through fun and laughter. HML will be running a local fundraising effort with all donations going to the local Family Services Association. So, come in next week to the library to donate money to the cause and receive a red nose to wear with pride. For more information about National fundraising efforts go to https://www.rednoseday.org/
