Juliet Blackwell's first Haunted Home Restoration Mystery introduces Melanie Turner, who has made quite a name for herself remodeling historic houses in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Mel hopes that by nailing the killer, she can rid herself of the ghostly presence of the murdered man-and not end up a construction casualty herself.
Mostly Literary Fiction - Homer & Langley
Monday, June 11 @ noon, Peets Coffee (B St. & Mission) &
6:30 p.m., Main Library
We will discuss this imaginative rendering of the lives of New York's fabled Collyer brothers by celebrated author E.L. Doctorow. Homer & Langley depicts the recluse brothers in their once grand Fifth Avenue mansion, facing Odyssean perils as they struggle to survive the wars, political movements, and technological advances of the last century. In its starred review, Publishers Weekly wrote, "Doctorow's achievement is in not undermining the dignity of two brothers who share a lush landscape built on imagination and incapacities. It's a feat of distillation, vision and sympathy."
Autobiography - The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
Wednesday, June 20 @ 6:30 p.m, Main Library
William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a land withered by drought and hunger, and a place where hope and opportunity were hard to find. But William had read about windmills in a book called Using Energy, and he dreamed of building one that would bring electricity and water to his village and change his life and the lives of those around him. His neighbors may have mocked him and called him misala-crazy-but William was determined to show them what a little grit and ingenuity could do. .
