Cat lovers, here's a mystery series for you! If you love Lillian Jackson Braun, you just might like Shirley Rousseau Murphy. Equally cozy, the Joe Grey series is enchanting in many of the same ways as the Braun's series. While Braun's settings vary, the main locale, Moose County, is "400 miles north of everywhere." Usually acknowledged as Bad Axe, Michigan, Braun lived there for years.
New genre graphic novels has been expanded lately to include graphic nonfiction. If you are still thinking that graphic means "sexually explicit," it is time to adjust. Rather like the job title "graphic designer" for someone who designs publications and visual images, a graphic novel is a story told in pictures. The old term was "comic book." Not really sure why the new term took over, but language is like that. Nobody is shot with a "heater" anymore, now the perp is "packing," usually a "nine," that is, a nine-millimeter weapon.
Two new books in the Jackson District Library system are strongly recommended for protecting your health.
