Sherman Alexie is one of my favorite authors--one of those authors you associate with a pivotal time in your life. My first introduction to him was many years ago when I was living far away from the Pacific Northwest and feeling completely lost. A dear friend wrote me a letter and included a photocopy of a story she had just read in The New Yorker. The story was called "Indian Country" and it was the best thing I had read in a long time.
Summer Learning has begun and all of the Youth Services Librarians at Kitsap Regional Library have been visiting schools and getting kids and teens excited about reading and learning! There are definite incentives for reading at the library. If you read ten hours, you get a free book of your choice and a ticket to the Kitsap County Fair. If you read 100 hours, you get to pick one of our limited edition 100 hour reader t-shirts and you get your picture on our Facebook page.
Many people love a series! They enjoy watching characters grow, relationships change, and worlds being created. Some readers read the books right when they come out and wait in anticipation until the next one is released. Others like to hear about a series that has several titles so that they can dive in and read them all straight through -- kind of like binge watching your favorite t.v. show! One thing I know for sure is that everyone hates when their favorite series is over.
So, you think it's been cold here lately? Here are some books that will make you glad our temps have only dropped to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In these titles you will find frigid temperatures, icy landscapes, and weather so threatening that it seems like it could be another character. Snow and ice are not to be taken lightly. They are literally breathtaking, twisting plots with a gust of well-placed wind.
Please join us this Saturday, October 15, in the Bainbridge High School Commons at 2:30 pm, when we will share an afternoon with best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith. The author of the popular and beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series will read from and discuss the latest installment, Precious and Grace.
