What Tristaters are reading




        • Harry T. Wilkes, Founder and trustee, Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum:

        The Century by Peter Jennings and Todd Brewster (Doubleday; $60).

        “It's a fascinating book about events over the past 100 years. I've always been a history buff and I was here for three-quarters of the century so I had a personal connection to the events. It refreshed my memory of things like the Depression, World War II and all the politics after the war. I didn't experience World War I, but I've seen the places in France (where events occurred). ”

        • Connor Chee, School for the Creative and Performing Arts seventh-grader; prize-winning composer and 2000 World Piano Competition gold medal winner:

        Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (Scholastic Books; $25.95).

        “So many things are going on at once, there's never a dull moment.”

        Left Behind: a Novel of the Earth's Last Days Tim LeHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins (Living Books/Tyndale House; $7.99).

        “It's really interesting, an end of the world kind of thing, like the Book of Revelations in the Bible. People disappear. It's very suspenseful with things that could actually happen. I like suspense stories.”

        — Maxine Berkman
