Hidden Gems- June Staff Recommendations

Jun 11, 2024 | Hidden Gems

Looking for something new and different to read, look no further than this month’s staff picks! Each month we give a staff member a few prompts to pick some of their favorite books. June’s staff picks were chosen by our library clerk John.

What has been your favorite book of 2024?

Charlie Hustle by Keith O’Brien. I like baseball a lot, and Pete Rose was such a important player in the history of the sport. I liked this book a lot because it covered his whole career, both on and off the field.

Charlie Hustle by Keith O’Brien is available in physical copy at Fort Branch, and also on Libby in audiobook and e-book forms.

What is a junior book that you think everyone should read?

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. Mark Twain is one of the classic authors, and we read this story when I was in school. I liked that he was a mischievous boy, but he had a good heart.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is available in physical copy at Haubstadt, and also on Libby in audiobook and e-book forms.

What upcoming release you are excited about?

Lost Evansville by James Lachlan MacLeod. History has always been real interesting to me. I enjoy looking back through to see what used to be in Evansville. There are some things I still remember and others I don’t.

Lost Evansville by James Lachlan MacLeod is available at Fort Branch Library and on Libby in and e-book form.
