May is National Get Caught Reading Month. At the Fulton Public Library, we believe it is never a bad time to pull out a good book to read (except maybe at work).

Library Director, Caroline, was supposed to be responding to emails, but instead she was caught reading The Hemlock Queen by Hannah Whitten.

The Hemlock Queen is a lush, romantic, epic fantasy series about a young woman who can raise the dead who must navigate the dangerous and glamorous world of the Sainted King’s royal court.

Children’s Services Coordinator, Janelle, was supposed to be setting up for Pre-K Storytime, but instead she was caught reading Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Daisy Jones & the Six is a historical fiction about the rise and fall of the most popular rock band of the 1970s.

Teen Services & Outreach Coordinator, Brianna, was supposed to be planning a teen program, but instead she was caught reading The Painter’s Daughters by Emily Howes.

The Painter’s Daughters is a historical fiction of love, madness, sisterly devotion, and control, about the two beloved daughters of renowned 1700s English painter Thomas Gainsborough.

Library Aide, Hollis, was supposed to be shelving books, but instead she was caught reading Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale by Art Spiegelman.

Maus is a YA graphic novel that recounts the chilling experiences of the author’s father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats.

Library Aide, Mark, was supposed to be ordering new books, but instead he was caught reading Telephone by Percival Everett.

Telephone is a deeply affecting story about the lengths to which loss and grief will drive us.

Library Aide, Mary, was supposed to be putting together take-and-make kits, but instead she was caught reading Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers by Jesse Sutanto.

Described as “Knives Out meets Kim’s Convenience,” Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers is about a lonely shopkeeper who takes it upon herself to solve a murder in the most peculiar way.

Library Aide, Sandy, was supposed to be submitting the payroll, but instead she was caught reading The Backyard Bird Chronicles by Amy Tan.

The Backyard Bird Chronicles is non-fiction about birding, nature, and the beauty around us that hides in plain sight.

Library Aide, Sue, was supposed to be putting new books in the system, but instead she was caught reading When Harry Met Minnie by Martha Teichner.

When Harry Met Minnie is a memoir of love and loss, of being in the right place at the right time, and of the mysterious ways a beloved pet can bring people together.

Library Aide, Stephanie, was supposed to be checking out patrons, but instead she was caught reading Circe by Madeline Miller.

Circe is a bold and subversive retelling of the Greek goddess Circe’s story

Nightwing was doing exactly what he was supposed to; being a good boy. He was caught reading Manners at the Library by Terri DeGezelle.
