You might also choose to read Mary Pipher’s new memoir called, A Life in Light, or reflections on time spent fishing in Casting Onward: Adventures in Search of America’s Native Gamefish, by Steve Ramirez.

Here are some of the new fiction books in the library: A Psalm for the Wild-Built, by Becky Chambers; Good Morning, Love, by Ashley M. Coleman; An Island Wedding, by Jenny Colgan; Flint and Mirror, by John Crowley; Fellowship Point, by Alice Elliott Dark; and Look Closer, by David Ellis.
