The Ferguson Forum

Welcome to The Ferguson Forum, The Ferguson Library’s blog on Patch.com! This site will help keep you up to speed on events here at The Library.

Here in the Communication Department at The Ferguson Library, one of the great perks of the job is that we get to see our librarians’ reading recommendations before they’re printed up. I thought I would give Patch readers a “sneak peak” of what librarians are suggesting for great Summer reads! Here’s a sampling of novels for those of you who like to get a jumpstart on the season:

 “A Land More Kind Than Home,” by Wiley Cash

A mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town.

 “Heading Out to Wonderful,” by Robert Goolrick

A suspenseful masterpiece, a haunting, heart-stopping novel of obsession and love gone terribly wrong.

 “In One Person,” by John Irving

A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity.

 “The Lifeboat,” by Charlotte Rogan

This is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival.

 “The Book of Lost Fragrances,” by M.J. Rose

Suspenseful tale of secrets, intrigue, and lovers separated by time.

 “The World We Found,” by Thrity Umrigar

Breathtaking, skillfully wrought story of four women and the unbreakable ties they share.
