Books on Assassins, Pirates, Plumbers, and More!

Hear about four recent books with somewhat dark themes: “The Pirate’s Wife: The Remarkable True Story of Sarah Kidd” (Geanacopolous, 2022); “Three Assassins: A Novel” (Isaka, 2022, sequel to “Bullet Train”); “Cobalt Red: How the Blood of the Congo Powers Our Life” (Kara, 2023); and “The White House Plumbers: The Seven Weeks That Led to Watergate and Doomed Nixon’s Presidency” (Krough & Krough, 2022). Ian Houck, head of Adult & Reference Services at Troy Public Library also talks about the library’s 125-year-old building, its unusually non-religious Tiffany stained glass window, and the “Expedition” sponsored by Upper Hudson Library System offering rewards for visiting some/all of the 36 libraries in Albany & Rensselaer counties.
