Librarians’ Top November Read

In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende has been voted as our subscribing librarians’ favourite read from our November issue!

Amid the biggest snowstorm in Brooklyn in living memory, an unexpected friendship blossoms between three people thrown together by circumstance. Richard Bowmaster, a lonely university professor in his 60s, hits the car driven by Evelyn Ortega, a young, undocumented migrant from Guatemala. 

But what at first seems like an inconvenience takes an unforeseen and darker turn when Evelyn comes to Richard and his neighbour Lucia Maraz, desperately seeking help. 

The Chilean American author was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014 by Barack Obama. Read our full interview with the author.


And congratulations to Cynthia from Riverina Regional Library in NSW who won this month’s draw for two recent releases for voting for her November favourite! Merry Christmas and happy summer reading to all our librarians!
