Lilian Jackson Braun display
Stop in and check out our Lilian Jackson Braun table display. I was sad to learn that she passed away in June at the age of 97. I am a fan of her "cozy mystery" series, The cat who..... Her protagonist, Jim Qwilleran, was a journalist, inheritor of great wealth, solver of mysteries and owner of two Siamese cats, Coco and YumYum. Also, he dated the local librarian, Polly (what's not to like?) I enjoyed the small town ambience, the kooky characters, and, yes, the predictability. Did I mention that the cats help to solve the mysteries? There are 29 books in the series, written between 1966 and 2007. I especially recommend the audiobook versions.
