New Non-Fiction: Wednesday, December 7

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few of the new nonfiction books that have come into the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

Frommer’s New York City 2023

In previous editions, Pauline Frommer’s highly personal guide to her own home city has twice been named “Best Guidebook of the Year” by the North American Travel Journalists Association. Her book has been New York City’s top-selling guide for the last eight years, and, for the first time, it’s being published in full color, adding dozens of engaging, helpful photos, and color maps to her award-winning advice. Just as importantly, this guide was fully researched after New York City’s pandemic lockdowns to ensure that it’s completely up-to-date. It contains itineraries, local knowledge on the best places to eat, detailed maps marked with attractions, hotels, restaurants, and subway stops, exact pricing for hotels, restaurants, attractions, tours, and more.

Have I Told You This Already? Stories I Don’t Want to Forget to Remember

Candid, insightful, and wildly entertaining essays about life, love, and lessons learned as an actress in Hollywood, from the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and New York Times bestselling author of Talking as Fast as I Can. With her signature sense of humor and down-to-earth storytelling, Lauren Graham opens up about her years working in the entertainment business—from the sublime to the ridiculous—and shares personal stories about everything from family and friendship to the challenges of aging gracefully in Hollywood. Filled with surprising anecdotes, sage advice, and laugh-out-loud observations, Graham’s latest collection of all-new, original essays showcases the winning charm and wit that she’s known for.

Con/Artist: The Life and Crimes of the World’s Greatest Art Forger

The art world is a much dirtier, nastier business than you might expect. Tony Tetro, one of the most renowned art forgers in history, will make you question every masterpiece you’ve ever seen in a museum, gallery, or private collection. Tetro’s “Rembrandts,” “Caravaggios,” “Miros,” and hundreds of other works now hang on walls around the globe. Throughout Tetro’s career, his inimitable talent has been coupled with a reckless penchant for drugs, fast cars, and sleeping with other con artists. He was busted in 1989 and spent four years in court and one in prison. His voice—rough, wry, deeply authentic—is nothing like the high society he swanned around in, driving his Lamborghini or Ferrari, hobnobbing with aristocrats by day, and diving into debauchery when the lights went out. For years, he hid it all in an unassuming California townhouse with a secret art room behind a full-length mirror. Tetro unveils the art world in an epic, alluring, at times unbelievable, but all-true narrative.
