    Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina’s bravery and cunning will keep her alive.
    Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.
    Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother’s past—only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.
    In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.

    CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION

    The current outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in China but has now spread internationally, impacting an increasing number of countries.  Sustained community spread is occurring in China.  Limited person-to-person spread, most associated with close contact with a patient with confirmed COVID-19  has been seen outside of China.  There have been 19 cases of COVID-19 identified in Illinois so far after CDPH and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) reported 8 additional cases on March 10.  
     
    The Village of Bridgeview is monitoring the developments of this situation and reviewing all guidance to help minimize the potential spread of the disease.

    • REMEMBER TO TAKE EVERYDAY PREVENTIVE ACTIONS that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
     
               >>     Avoid close contact with sick people.
               >>     While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.

  • Novels @ Night - Educated: a memoir

    MARCH ONLY - Tuesday, March 31st at 7:00 pm


    Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.
    Books are available at the Circulation desk.


  • Steve Darnall, the host of Those Were the Days and the publisher of Nostalgia Digest presents:
    Lights Out, Everybody: Mystery and Horror During the Golden Age of Radio . This presentation uses sound clips from some of radio's best known mystery and horror programs (including Escape, Inner Sanctum and Lights Out) to illustrate how radio could truly be a "Theater of the mind" and use music, voices and sounds to create indelible — and often frightening — "pictures."   Stop by or call 708-458-2880 to register!
