WHAT'S NEW

IN BOOKS

 


 

And now there's another rediscovered book from a favorite author. This will excite kids, as well as their parents and grandparents who grew up with Dr. Seuss. The latest is "What  Pet Should I Get." It goes on sale July 28, but we're taking orders for it now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Two long-lost books from two of literature's best known authors will be published this year:

 

Harper Lee was long believed to have written just one book, "To Kill a Mockingbird." now, however, comes news of a second book, a 'sequel' that was actually written before the original. "Go Set a Watchman" features Scout, a character in "Mockingbird," but this time as an adult.

     The new book is due out July 14. Reserve your copy now with Page 2 Books.

 

 

 

Ayn Rand, known for novels such as "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" and writings that formed the basis of the philosophical movement known as Objectivism, wrote an early work of fiction called "Ideal," then rewrote it as a play. Now both versions will be published in a single volume to be released July 7. Order a copy now from Page 2 to have it on release day.

 


 

MORE BOOKS FROM

LOCAL FAVORITES

     The new book from science fiction/futurist master Neal Stephenson, a Seattle resident, is "Seveneves," described as "a grand story of annihilation and survival spanning five thousand years. A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space." It's due out May 19.

 

Erik Larson's readable and heavily researched histories have taken us from Chicago at the time of the world's fair ("The Devil in the White City") to prewar Berlin ("In the Garden of Beasts.") Now he takes on the sinking of the Lusitania in "Dead Wake," on sale March 10. (Bill has read this one and strongly recommends it.)
