Staff Picks

Dragana’s Picks:inner circle
The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer
Fast paced political thriller. If you want to know more about National Archives and the historical secrets, this is the must read.
benny goodman
Benny Goodman’s Greatest Hits
Benny’s clarinet will take you back to the sixties – he is the King of the Swing!

Jessie’s Picks:miss fishers
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
Fun, fashionable mystery show set in 1920’s Australia. Based on a series of books, but it omits some characters. Miss Fisher solves murders with the aid of her household, friends, and the police. Very entertaining!

Jars of Clay by Jars of Clayjars of clay
Great debut album (and still my favorite album by them)! They are an acoustic-based rock group with a great lead singer. This album features the cross-over hit “Flood.”

Kim’s Picks:gods and monsters
Gods and Monsters
Ian McKellen gives a tour-de-force performance as James Whale, World War I veteran who in the 30s directed Frankenstein,The Invisible Man and Show Boat and afterward lived a reclusive life in California.

The Men Who United the States by Simon Winchestermen who united the states
Describes the adventures by which Lewis & Clark, John Wesley Powell, Samuel Morse, and others less well known knit the country together by road, water, train, Morse code, telephone, radio, TV and Internet. By the author of Krakatoa and The Atlantic.

Kristina’s Picks:return of the pink panther
The Return of the Pink Panther
Peter Sellers is back as the hilariously incompetent Inspector Clouseau. Once again the famed diamond, the Pink Panther, has been stolen and this time the only clue left behind is a white glove. A movie that will make the entire family laugh, Peter Seller’s comedic has never been better.

Landline by Rainbow Rowelllandline
When Georgie McCool connects an old land-line phone she finds in her closet, she unknowingly calls her past. Back in a pivotal point in her relationship with boyfriend, now husband Neal, Georgie reexamines her life. Rowell offers an insightful and funny perspective on love, marriage, and relationships in this entertaining and thoughtful story.

Stephanie’s Picks:wire
The Wire
This HBO series comes alive with precision storytelling and superb acting. It is deeply layered with political corruption, drug wars, and beginnings of surveillance that plagued the city of Baltimore in the early 2000s.
strict joy
Strict Joy by The Swell Season
This is one of my favorite albums.
