February Book Picks

A Hollywood con artist, a memoir of growing up Black in the Adirondacks, a history of climate change denial, a story about women’s friendships, and a cat-and-mouse mystery: this segment has it all! For her first month of book recommendations for Hudson Mohawk Magazine, Christiann Gibeau, the new head of adult and reference services at Troy Public Library, selected an interesting range of recent books. Those discussed: “The Con Queen of Hollywood: THe Hunt for an Evil Genius” (Scott C. Johnson, 2023); “Outsider: Stories of Growing Up Black in the Adirondacks” (Alice Paden Green, 2023); “The Parrot and the Igloo: Climate and the Science of Denial” (David Lipsky, 2023); “Friendship Club” (Robyn Carr, 2024); and “Hero” (Thomas Perry, 2024).
