LIBRARY TALK – MAY 9, 2019

    Back to back programs in the annex are over, we’ll take a week off, and then….BIG FOOT! On Saturday, May 18th at 2:00 p.m. the Ohio Night Stalkers will return to the library, this time in the annex, to share with us their recent findings on Big Foot in the Buckeye State.  This should be an entertaining and educational event, and hope that we have people that want to share their experiences as well. This is a free and open to the public event.

            New books added this week include two biographies of different ages and people” Joe Namath pens All The Way: My Life in Four Quarters and then Unlikely General “Mad” Anthony Wayne and the Battle for America by Mary Stockwell. 

            We’ve noticed a bit more interest in mid-century collecting and decorating, so on to our shelves goes The Midcentury Kitchen: America’s Favorite Room from Workspace to Dreamscape 1940s-1970s by Sarah Archer.  Colorful plastics, deep reds,  harvest gold and avocado green, bold Pyrex patterns, dishwashers and the feel of ultra-modern and efficiency—fun to reminisce, but also useful if doing retro decorating or just want to know what the ‘perfect’ kitchen was supposed to look like.

            Of course, fiction. Janet Evanovich returns to her Fox and O’Hare series with The Big Kahuna, Amanda Quick spins a yarn with mystery, romance and a cursed (?) mansion in Tightrope,  the beach reads are starting to appear, this week Mary Kay Andrews offers Sunset Beach, and Richard Paul Evans wraps up his Broken Road Trilogy with The Road Home.
