COVER4bookmarkNext time you visit us please consider purchasing your copy of the book “WHISTLE-STOP POEMS” (2nd edition) by Harrington Williams, published by the Oscar Grady Public Library.

Called “The Poet of Saukville”, Harrington Williams lived a short but full life, from being a sailor in Southeast Asia, a sports writer for The Ozaukee Press, to a writer of poems that show the local color of bygone times in a very sensible and animated way.

Luckily, we have been able at the Oscar Grady Library to publish in-house a second edition of his Whistle-Stop Poems, to preserve and promote his work for new generations, making it available in book form at a very accessible price.

The Other Woman by Hank Phillippi Ryan

Reporter Jane Ryland is tracking down a candidate’s secret mistress just days before a pivotal Senate election. Detective Jake Brogan is investigating a possible serial killer that may be hunting down Boston’s young women under the city’s bridges. As the body count rises and election looms closer, it becomes clear to Jane and Jake that their cases are connected…and that they may be facing a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to silence a scandal.
Dirty politics, dirty tricks, and a barrage of final twists, The Other Woman is the first in an explosive new series from Hank Phillipi Ryan. Seduction, betrayal, and murder—it’ll take a lot more than votes to win this election.

Limited copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend! Can’t make it to the discussion? Sign up at the circulation desk for our online book club!
