Library Talk – October 25, 2016


From the desk of Alison Gibson, Director
Halloween is right around the corner. Just to let you know, the Ripley Friends of the Library will be here during trick or treat time on Monday (5:30-7 p.m.) to hand out goodies and applaud the costumes. We know we aren’t in the ‘high density’ area for trick or treating, but the Friends enjoy supporting the kids that do walk in.
If you’ve seen the big truck in the Ripley parking lot, that means….the floor is getting worked on in the annex. Years of many uses have caused more than a few cracks, cuts and divots, but I have confidence in the guys working on it and it should look pretty darn good. This is a big step towards completion, and I hope it goes well.
New books this week include Jon Grisham’s latest legal thriller is The Whistler, with a corrupt judge, someone who knows the truth, and someone willing fight to keep it a secret, Michael Connelly continues his popular Harry Bosch series with The Wrong Side of Goodbye, and Richard Castle continues to write about Captain Nikki Heat in High Heat. And to our collection I’ve added a debut novel titled The Education of Dixie Dupree by Donna Everhart, a coming of age story set in the south, with the heroine an 11-year old girl that experiences secrets, lies and a gritty upbringing, but survives against dark family problems. Her narration has been compared to Secret Life of Bees and Bastard out of Carolina.
Happy Halloween!
