Nancy's Notes - December 1, 2011

“11/22/63” by Stephen King, “The Vaccine Book” by Dr Robert W. Sears, “Growing up Amish” by Ira Wrangler.

  I am not a big Stephen King but his newest, “11/22/63”, does sound interesting. On November 22, 1963 three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? His story takes readers on a journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. When Jake Epping’s friend Al  tells him he has a storeroom with a portal to the past. He enlists Jake’s help to prevent the Kennedy assassination.
    In the past few years childhood vaccinations have come under fire from parents questioning the side effects. Dr Robert W. Sears, a pediatrician and author of books on autism and child-rearing has now written, “The Vaccine Book”. He includes information on how rare or common or how serious various diseases are, how the vaccines are made and what ingredients are included, which ingredients are controversial, which brands and types are the safest, and different side effects. 
    Ira Wrangler has written a memoir, “Growing up Amish”. When he was seventeen Ira got up in the middle of the night, packed all his belongings, and walked away from his home in the Old Order Amish settlement of Bloomfield, Iowa. He enters a world more foreign than he could ever imagine. Wagner paints a picture of Amish life, from his childhood on the family farm and his Rumspinga rite of passage at age sixteen, to his decision to leave the Amish church at twenty-six.
