Linda’s recommendations include these three book titles:
"Below the Belt" by Stuart Woods, author of more than fifty New York Times–bestselling novels.  Stone Barrington lands in hot water in this new adventure: Enjoying himself in Santa Fe with a lovely female companion, Stone Barrington receives a request for a delicate favor from an old friend, former U.S. president Will Lee. Stone holds the key not just to one man's fate, but to the fate of the nation.
"The Mistress" by Danielle Steel:  A riveting tale of vast fortune, cruelty, creative genius, and daring courage: Theo longs for the beautiful Natasha, who was discovered on a Moscow street and now is the exquisite mistress of Russian billionaire Vladimir. Vladimir is enraged because Theo's family refuses to part with any of the paintings by his late father, the famous and difficult Lorenzo. These uncompromising individuals are charting a course for a very dangerous collision.
"Hillbilly Elegy" by J.D. Vance is a Memoir of a family and culture in crisis. Vance, a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, writes a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town in Ohio that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America's white working class.
Missy ordered the new "Star Wars Rouge One" book, a novelization of the film. The movie has been such a fantastic hit in the theaters, why not read the book, too?  It is set in the years following the events of the Clone Wars and builds up to the start of the Rebellion against the Empire. It is centered on four main characters who must work together in the rebel forces to steal the plans for the Empires new weapon, the “Death Star”. There are some epic battles the big bad guy, Darth Vader shows up. For any Star Wars fan out there, it is worth the read.
Melissa will be starting Kids Adventure Time (story time) again next Tuesday evening from 5:30-6, it is open to kids 2-prek (younger is ok). Come listen to some stories, sing a few songs and make a craft or other fun projects.
