Join fellow Jane Austen fans on the second (2nd) Monday of each month at 6 pm at the Carnegie branch to discuss books, movies and other Austen or Austen-type materials. For spring 2013 we are reading Jane Eyre and then Anne Bronte's The tenant of Wildfell Hall.
If you signed up for Winter Reading's Hot Reads for Cold Nights, don't forget to turn in your entries before the end of the month! The program ends Thursday, February 28th.
Three times funny--oops, I mean Three times lucky, by Sheila Turnage is funny, poignant, unexpected. Great people and quirky people--sometimes in the same person. Families with real problems and others with not-so-real but incredibly funny problems.
Wow. This is an awesome book. Not a happy read, mind you, but superb. I normally do not like legal thrillers (think John Grisham) but Defending Jacob is quite different. This is almost a necessary read for all citizens, showing the extreme toll taken on the often innocent family of the accused. The horrible and unacceptable results for the family of the accused is so plainly shown it hurts.
