Nancy's Notes - September 8, 2016

"Children’s Adventure Time” starts on Thursday, September 15, from 10:30-11:00 a.m., “All Is Not Forgotten” by Wendy Walker, “Bullseye” by James Patterson

         Missy is starting her “Children’s Adventure Time”, formerly Toddlertime, on Thursday September 15. Participants will meet from 10:30-11:00. Note the time change. It is aimed at children 2-5 but younger children are also welcome. Call the library at 532-3673 with any questions.
         Wendy Walker’s “All Is Not Forgotten”, begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut. Everything seems picture perfect until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. Immediately afterward she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this event did not touch her carefully constructed world. The quest to find the monster who invaded their town, or who perhaps lives among them, drives this psychological thriller to an unexpected conclusion.
          Today one of our patrons brought back James Patterson’s “Bullseye” and mentioned that they really enjoyed it. If you are a Patterson fan I’m sure you know he doesn’t do much of the writing anymore. This one is written with Michael Ledwidge, who has worked with him on many of his recent novels. This is the latest in the Michael Bennett series. Bennett finds himself caught in a deadly standoff where he must kill, or be killed. Snow blankets the avenues of Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side. The storm is the perfect cover for a highly trained team of lethal assassins as they prowl the streets, hunting their prey. But their first hit is simply target practice. Stepping directly into the line of fire, the president of the United States is in New York for a summit at the United Nations with his Russian counterpart. Detective Michael Bennett is called into service to trace the source of a threat that could rip the country apart and ignite a war. With allegiances constantly in doubt and no one above suspicion, only Bennett can save the president and the country before the assassins' deadly kill shot hits its mark.
          Stop in and see us: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., or Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
