HarperCollins and Penguin Random representatives were on hand at the James H. LaRue branch on February 17 for another Book Lovers event. How lucky for everyone who attended and heard about the publishers’ new favorites, along with a few from 2014 for good measure! See the list here.

Meet C.J. Box at the James H. LaRue Library on Thurs. March 12th at 7 pm. Books will be on sale at the event. Register online or by calling Lisa at 720-348-9522.
