Marie Kondo’s Kurashi at Home: How to Organize Your Space and Achieve Your Ideal Lifecover of Marie Kondo's Kurashi at Home

By Marie Kondo

Available as: print book

Kondo’s Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up transformed how so many sort through their physical items and minimize “stuff” with the simple question of “does this spark joy?”.  In her new book, robust with color photos, she invites readers to apply this question to their behaviors and mindset.  It becomes about what you keep instead of what you get rid of.  Whether one page in this book speaks to you or they all do, there are recipes, rituals, meditations and invitations to deepen you Kondo experience.

An electrifying and profoundly impactful poetry collection.  Poems of resilience, trauma, womanhood and refugees from the award-winning Somali British poet who collaborated on Beyonce’s Black Is King and Lemonade.  This compelling book of poetry will leave a lasting impression and Terrance Hayes says it best, “Shire writes the way that Nina Simone sang.”  Available also on the library’s Libby App as an eBook read by the author and to hear an author read their poetry is to hear the intended rhythm of the words.


Art of the Chickencover of Art of the Chicken

By Jacques Pepin

Available as: print book and eBook

A memoir told through the love of chicken both as a culinary ingredient and as an artists’ inspiration.  Pepin is known as a master chef, but here he shares the paintings, stories, memories, and of course a few recipes drawn from the feathered muse that shifts between easel to plate.  Written with the familiar writing style of a conversation, this book is charming and falls easily into many genres to appeal to foodies and arm chair travelers.
