Heart of America News

By Vicki Hoffart - Heart of America Library Director | Oct 24, 2020

Time is running out…only one week left to participate in Library Bingo.

There will be Story Hour on Friday, Oct. 30, at 10:15 a.m.

The Book Discussion Group will meet on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 10 a.m. in the West Room. The title chosen this time is “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. This fiction choice is a New York Times bestseller – a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope – a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it. The book became a major motion picture from Fox 2000 starring Milo Ventimiglia, Amanda Seyfried and Kevin Costner. Stop by the circulation desk and pick up a copy of you are interested.

New junior books include a couple non-fiction selections: “Five-minute Fairy Tales” by Mary Enelbreit and “Ivan: the remarkable true story of the shopping mall gorilla” by Katherine Applegate and a fiction title “Isaiah Dunn is My Hero” by Kelly J. Baptist.

Adult non-fiction additions are varied this week. We have “Three-Ring Circus: Kobe, Shaq, Phil and the crazy years of the Lakers dynasty” by Jeff Pearlman; “The Devil’s Highway” by Luis Alberto Urrea; “The Lost Civilization Enigma” by Philip Coppens; “Eighty-somethings: a practical guide to letting go, aging well and finding unexpected happiness” by Katharine Esty; “Where am I Giving?: a global adventure exploring how to use your gifts and talents to make a difference” by Kelsey Timmerman; “Killer Cults: stories of charisma, deceit and death” by Stephen Singular; “55, Underemployed and Faking Normal: your guide to a better life” by Elizabeth White; and “The Sun Does Shine: how I found life and freedom on death row” by Anthony Ray Hinton.

New fiction titles in the adult section are “The Operator” by Gretchen Berg; “Remember Me: a Spanish Civil War novel” by Mario Escobar; “Hard Way Home” and “Star and the Shamrock” by Jean Grainger, two more books about a Jewish mother forced to send her children away on the Kindertransport in 1939; and large print titles “Light from Distant Stars” by Shawn Smucker and “Near Dark” by Brad Thor.
