We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

77 Days in September by Ray Gorham

It begins with Kyle Tait, who is returning to his home in Montana from Houston when terrorists detonate an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) bomb high in the atmosphere, resulting in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communication, and the bringing to halt most forms of transportation.

It was a reminder of how much we depend on our electronic devices and how life would be without them. It really made me think of my survival skills and preparedness for any national emergency.

If you are a prepper, as some call themselves, this book and its sequel, Daunting Days of Winter, would be a good read for you. The possibilities of these fictional books really made me think, What if?

If 77 Days in September interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
