"Scoundrel: How a Convicted Murderer Persuaded the Women Who Loved Him, the Conservative Establishment, and the Courts to Set Him Free"
by Sarah Weinman
"Journalist Sarah Weinman once again introduces true crime readers to a sensational case that has largely faded from cultural memory. While a bare-bones retelling would be fascinating in itself — how, exactly, did the late conservative icon William F. Buckley Jr. find himself successfully lobbying for the release of a convicted murderer? — Weinman probes beyond the bizarre facts of the Edgar Smith saga to highlight the debris left in his wake. Smith, she argues, did not simply take the lives of the women he victimized, but also took their right and ability to narrate their own stories, a project in which Buckley Jr. and other enablers gladly participated. A must for true crime readers interested in the re-centering of victims in the genre, especially those who are fans of Weinman's acclaimed 'The Real Lolita.'"

“A child looking for books about the Indian Ocean said to me, 'The library is like an airport. It can take you everywhere you want to go and new places.'" — Katie, Youth Specialist at Main
“With her arms full of books, a child leaving the children’s area turned to her adult and said, 'Oh...I think we need just one more book before we go!'" — Hannah, Library Specialist at Main
“An older adult patron who saw 'Library Inspired: The BPL Staff Art Show' said it was 'absolutely wonderful' and she couldn't believe how talented our staff is.'” — Meredith, Library Specialist at Main
