The Roswell Public Library is hosting a special presentation this Saturday featuring the authors of the newly released book “Irreparable.” Katrina Morgan, a young woman experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder is struggling with both old relationships and new.

Her cross-country move and new love interest may have helped her escape an abusive relationship, but her demons come calling once again. With her symptoms worsening, the line begins to blur between reality and imagination, but is her new boyfriend there to help her or does he have his own secrets?
This psychological thriller is a hard one to put down and there will be copies available for purchase and signing after the program. Refreshments will also be provided by the Friends of the Library and this program is free to attend.
And if you haven’t yet, Aug. 31 is the last day to get your Summer Reading T-shirt, so if you earned one, make sure to drop by and pick it up! You can contact the library by calling 575-622-7101, visiting us at 301 N. Pennsylvania Ave. or the website at roswell-nm.gov/405/Roswell-Public-Library.

Book Talk by Amanda Davis
Reference Librarian
If you heard Chuck Zukowski speak at the UFO Festival this year, you may be interested in reading the book written about him by Ben Mezrich called “The 37th Parallel: The Secret Truth Behind America’s UFO Highway.”
If you missed him and are at all interested in strange phenomenon, especially as it relates to our state, then this is also an excellent book to pick up. It’s not at all dry like some nonfiction can be, as Zukowski is a character unto himself. Passionate about UFOs from a young age, as an adult he tries to struggle family and work life with an eagerness to investigate UFO sightings, cattle mutilations, abductions and anything else related. He ends up taking on a position as a volunteer sheriff just to be first to the scene and gain more eyewitness accounts.
Though his wife is dispassionate about the borderline obsession, his sister happily joins in and the two spend weekends investigating the paranormal including Dulce Canyon, the Skinwalker Ranch and yes, even Roswell. Through his skeptical, yet thorough research, he begins to see a pattern across that falls along the 37th circle of latitude across the United States.
You can expect more of an engaging adventure than a text book, since Ben Mezrich is also responsible for the book “The Accidental Billionaires,” which was later adapted into the Academy Award-winning movie, “The Social Network.”
Amanda Davis is a reference librarian at the Roswell Public Library. She can be contacted at A.Davis@roswell-nm.gov.
