Daughter of the Forest was an outstanding read--one that kept me turning the next page in anticipation. Although it is a retelling of The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen, this book was as fresh and unexpected as a totally new story. The atmosphere is enchanting and the book is lyrical, taking flight in so many ways.
Jane Austen fans, take note. The book Keeping the castle is a fun, fresh take on a familiar Jane Austen setting. Everyone will enjoy lovely 17-year-old Althea's quick wit and quicker quips. Impoverished nobility, Althea's mother, Althea, and her little brother, the heir, cope in their crumbling faux castle with amazing creativity.
Join the Carnegie Feature Film group for the newest Sherlock Holmes' movie: Game of shadows.

Come enjoy the movie and the munchies! 6 pm, next Thursday, July 5th, in the auditorium...see you there!

The second book from Deborah Harkness' pen is as action-filled as the first, A Discovery of Witches. Shadow of Night adds the excitement, danger, and intrigue of a trip back to the political upheaval and superstition of 16th century Europe.
