‘A rollicking combination of art and archaeology, forgeries, drug deals, and tourists, Montezuma, murder, and love. Dancing with the Tiger is smart, sexy, and extremely suspenseful. Block out some time – once you start, you won’t be putting it down’ Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves and The Jane Austen Book Club

Later on in August, Ted Lamont spoke at the Library and read from his book The Forty Years that Created America. An enthusiastic audience bought all of the copies of the book that he brought with him.
The Library hosted two authors: Alice Greenway, who recently published The Bird Skinner, a novel about – to paraphrase The New York Times – an ornery old man on a Maine island. (Of course, there are none of those on our island!) Lily King was also at the Library that afternoon. Lily’s latest is Euphoria, a book about friendship and other kinds of relationships on a much larger island – Papua, New Guinea.
