Review: Fortune Smiles

Fortune Smiles by Adam Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a National Book Award winning and completely knockout collection of six stories with characters that will haunt you. They are surreal, unnerving, hilarious and heart-breaking. Highly recommended!

Review: Moonglow

Moonglow by Michael_Chabon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This fictionalized “memoir” from Chabon does not disappoint. Inspired by his grandfather’s deathbed stories and confessions, it is written with love and is, by turns, inspiring, sad, thoughtful, and hilarious. Chabon promises that he has “stuck to facts except when facts refused to conform to memory, narrative purpose or the truth as I prefer to understand it.”

Keep Calm and Plan Your Future

Keep Calm and Plan Your Future! October’s second floor book display revolves around what many of you are starting to think about — life after high school. Whether you are taking the PSATS this week or starting to look ahead to the SATs, we thought the books featured in this display would pair well with what many of you are focused on these days and would offer some good advice for you to keep in mind while you are weighing the decisions you are each facing about your individual futures. Also, when the time comes, don’t forget that we have an entire section on the first floor with study books for the various exams you are all going to take at some point here, from the ACT to the AP Exams. These books can be used in the library or checked out on a 1 day loan. If you have any questions, just ask our library staff at the desk!
