July 2016 Staff Recommendations

by Fernanda Santos
(Flatiron Books, $25.99)
"Fernanda Santos, the  New York Times  Bureau Chief for Arizona and New Mexico opens  The Fire Line with a chart of the positions of the 19 dead Granite Mountain Hotshots killed in the line of duty fighting the Yarnell fire just outside of Prescott in 2013. Each geometric outline has a number and a corresponding name below. Santos immediately moves from hard data to loving, detailed descriptions of each fallen Hotshot; their hopes and dreams and reasons for choosing such a dangerous profession. This is a heartbreaking piece of reporting, a page turner as Santos takes the reader through the events leading up to the disaster. The Fire Line  gives the reader background on the science of wildfire and the philosophy of firefighting, and when Santos writes of the wilderness and the challenges faced by the Hotshots you feel as if you are out in the wilderness with these men and better understand how difficult their work is. The Fire line is an important work, very relevant to Colorado, and thought provoking in its look at the expanding population in the Rocky Mountain West." 
- Cathy Langer, Director of Buying

Fernanda Santos will discuss and sign The Fire Line on Wednesday, July 20 at our Aspen Grove store. More details here.

by Eleanor Brown
(G.P. Putnam's Sons, $26)
"If Edith Wharton were alive today she would be an admirer of Eleanor Brown and her compelling and thought provoking new novel  The Light of Paris . Like Wharton, Brown's protagonists strain agains the constraints and conventional expectations of their families and social circles: Madeleine in 1999 and her grandmother Margie 80 years earlier. Post Great War Paris  provides a gorgeous backdrop for Margie's emancipation and Madeleine's enlightenment many years later. I was enraptured by both of these women, rooting for them, their art and personal freedom. Thank you, Eleanor Brown, for giving readers a great story and compelling characters. Their struggles and triumphs ring true and will resonate with many, many readers. I can't wait to put The Light of Paris in the hands of my customers." 
- Cathy Langer, Director of Buying

Douglas County Libraries will present Eleanor Brown for a launch of The Light of Paris on Friday, July 15. Click here for more details.
