We are very pleased to announce a new online exhibit from the Special Collections Library: Shakespeare on Page and Stage: A Celebration. It is a virtual record of the physical exhibit that took place in the Audubon Room of the Hatcher Library from January 11 to April 27, 2016. As the title playfully suggests, the exhibit is a historical journey through different versions of Shakespeare’s plays as they were edited for publication or interpreted for the stage.
In a Dark, Dark Wood, author Ruth Ware's debut novel, is a very suspenseful mystery. Nora, a reclusive writer living in London, reluctantly attends a party to celebrate the marriage of Clare, a friend she hasn't seen for ten years, in a creepy glass house surrounded by woods in the north of England. The party goes disastrously wrong and someone ends up dead. Nora wakes up in a hospital room, with no memory of what happened. Is she a suspect or a victim? Will she regain her memory...
The Murder of Mary Russell is the latest volume in Laurie R. King's long-running series featuring an older Sherlock Holmes and his young wife Mary Russell. This entry in the series focuses on Mrs. Hudson, Holmes' housekeeper, and tells the story of her childhood as a thief and con artist in Victorian London, and of her first meeting with Holmes. I will not give away what the title means.
