Not quite ready to travel by plane, train or automobile? Let books transport you to distant lands and powdery, sandy beaches while you stay snug and safe at home. There are some great new fiction and non-fiction books that will make you feel like you’ve vacationed in Australia or Greece or walked on the sandy beaches of Hawaii without ever leaving your home.

May 22, 2021

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. In honor of that, I am going to recommend some Young Adult novels that deal with certain mental illnesses. Often when teens are struggling with something, it helps to know that others are experiencing the same thing. Fiction is perfect for promoting empathy and understanding. If a young adult does not feel comfortable asking questions or seeking professional help, a book about the topic can be a good start.

Theresa Hoge

Circulation Supervisor

I re-joined the staff at the Whitefish Bay Public Library in August of 2018 as the Head of Circulation Services. From 2008 through 2013, I enjoyed working with our patrons as a Circulation Assistant. My family and I have been avid users and supporters of the Whitefish Bay Library during the 25+ years we’ve lived in this community. A few of my favorite books include ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern, ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and ‘A constellation of vital phenomena’ by Anthony Marra. I’m also a big fan of all of the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling , and also science fiction series by authors such as Patrick Rothfuss, George R.R. Martin, and Michael J. Sullivan.

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra

In a rural village in December 2004 Chechnya, a failed doctor Akhmed harbors the traumatized 8-year-old daughter of a father abducted by Russian forces and treats a series of wounded rebels and refugees while exploring the shared past that binds him to the child.

The Name of the Wind : the Kingkiller chronicle day one by Patrick Rothfuss

The story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend. So begins the tale of Kvothe, from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic.

Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan

"A new series set in the world of the Riyria Chronicles. In the land of the Rhune, trees can tell the future and the gods are beyond reproach. But when Raithe's father is slain, he does the unthinkable--he kills a god. From this act, rises the legend of the God Killer, the seeds of a rebellion, and the question of whether the gods are really immortal after all"-- Provided by publisher.

About Whitefish Bay Public Library

A library that is just about lending books seems so last century, doesn’t it?

That’s our philosophy at the Whitefish Bay Public Library, anyway. We believe that everything that we do, we do to make a difference in someone’s life. Creating connections. Building community. Collecting stories. Sure, we have books, but we’re SO much more.
