Poetry, dance to be focus at Huntington



New to the fiction bestseller list this week are “The Museum of Extraordinary Things” by Alice Hoffman, “Moving Target” by J.A. Jance, “Like a Mighty Army” by David Weber, and “Concealed in Death” by J.D. Robb.

“The Museum of Extraordinary Things” is written by the best-selling author of “The Dovekeepers.” It’s about the electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the 20th century. Hoffman weaves her trademark magic, romance and masterful storytelling in this tender story of young lives in tumultuous times. 

“Moving Target” is the ninth Ali Reynolds thriller written by Jance, a New York Times best-selling author . This story spans continents, solves a cold case murder and figures out who wants a young juvenile offender dead. Jance’s blog ( is an honest, fresh look at the life of an author of a certain age. I highly recommend it.

“Like a Mighty Army” is the seventh volume in the New York Times best-selling “Safehold” series. The series is set 2,000 years in the future when hyperspace travel has allowed humanity to colonize the far reaches of the universe. 

“Concealed in Death” is one of two books that will be published this year that are part of the “In Death” series. You may know that J.D. Robb and Nora Roberts are the same person but did you know that every one of the books published under either name between 1999 and 2009 made it to the New York Times best-seller list?


New this week to the best-sellers list are “Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street’s Post-Crash Recruits” by Kevin Roose and “One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brother Band” by Alan Paul.
