The Knights of Columbus will be having fish fries each Friday evening from February 28 to April 3 from 5-7 p.m. at Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic Church in New England. The proceeds will go to support several charitable organizations including the Friends of the Dade County Public Library and Light in the Mountains, another organization that supports library programs.
We appreciate the Knights of Columbus for their support and we hope our patrons will go and enjoy a fish dinner. They serve fish and chips, coleslaw, green beans, corn on the cob, hushpuppies, dessert and drink for $7 a plate.

I’ve been looking at some new books coming out this year and I’m very excited to see that some of my favorite series will have additions to them this year. You will see that I’m partial to mysteries, but I know many of our patrons are, so here are some good ones to look for in 2020: Best-selling author David Baldacci has a new book coming out in his Memory Man series. The title is Walk the Wire, it is the sixth book in this series and it will be out on April 21. September is going to keep readers very busy. On September 1, a new Inspector Gamache book by Louise Penny will be on the shelves. The title is All the Devils are Here and it is the 16th book in this series.
I’m a huge fan of the Vera Stanhope series, both the books and the TV show, and Book 9 in the Vera series by Ann Cleeves is scheduled to come out on September 8. Look for The Darkest Evening. Also, being published in September (the 29th) is Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith. Troubled Blood is the fifth book in the Cormoran Strike series and Robert Galbraith is the pen name of J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books.
Another favorite detective series of mine is Alexander McCall Smith’s The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, which takes place in Botswana, Africa. The new book, How to Raise An Elephant, is the 21st book in this series and it will be on sale on October 6.
Do you have a book you would like to recommend? Leave a note for me at the desk (Linda) with the title and author of the book, and a sentence or two about it and we will pass those on.
