Independence Day is coming and we have materials to help you celebrate!
If you haven’t already read James Patterson’s book, 4th of July, this is the perfect time to do so. For those of you already familiar with Patterson’s story lines or characters, this is part of his Women’s Murder Club series and features San Francisco police lieutenant Lindsay Boxer. (Perhaps you’ve even caught some of the TV crime shows with Boxer as the main character, as played by Angie Harmon.)
Another appropriate title is Red, White & Blue Murder by Bill Crider. This is the thirteenth novel in the Sheriff Dan Rhodes mystery series, in which Rhodes is presented as a likeable Texan lawman. His character is wry and warmhearted, in a humorous, down-home and folksy way.
If you’re looking for something a little more serious, try Red, White , and Muslim: My Story of Belief by Asma Gull Hasan. Described on the back cover as ”a warm, witty, wonderful story about what it means to be both Muslim and American in a post 9/11 world, ” this should be an enlightening and educational read for those of us less familiar with the Muslim faith.
Enjoy your 4th of July holiday!
