The Heat Is On

OK, 90 degrees today in the New Canaan area! Good day to grab an icy Swedish thriller and sit by the pool, the beach, the woods. If you have'nt already started the Steig Larsson books "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" group you are one of only a few left. Lead character Lizbeth Salander will take you on a ride you won't soon forget....and then just when you think it's over, two more books join the pack,"The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest." She is a heroine for the 21st century.

Finished all the Larsson books? Then try Camilla Lackberg, one of Sweden's bestselling thriller writers. "The Ice Princess", another icy cold read for this steamy weekend.

Or jump into Henning Mankell's stand alone thriller "The Man From Bejing." Readers applaud Mankell as the "intellectual" thriller author. He reaches for deeper truths about humanity and largely succeeds.
On a lighter note we have the author and illustrator of the adorable "Ladybug Girl" books joining us at the New Canaan Library, 11:00am today, Saturday, June 26th. Don your ladybug wings and fly by for a storyhour and signing. Great gifts for the little ones in your life.
