With cold weather right around the corner there is no better time to curl up with a book, and the November LibraryReads is just the place to start looking. Fall in love with the compassionate characters you will meet in New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg’s heartwarming new book The Story of Arthur Truluv; ride along as Lee Child takes you on a nail-biting adventure in his new thriller The Midnight Line; and journey into the past with Caroline Fraser as she revealed new insights to the beloved author Laura Ingalls Wilder and her life on the prairie.
