Heart Of America Library News 7-18

By Staff | Jul 18, 2020

The Striving Readers Literacy Committee had its first sessions for the summer for ages 5 and under at the Heart of America Library. Sessions were held on July 7 or 8 and everyone seemed to have a good time. Our North Dakota wind provided the ideal help for the outdoor bubble time. The next sessions will be August 4 and 5. Pre-registration is required. Please contact Gail Rham at 701-208-1304 for more information and to register.

Grades K-6 are eligible for the Library Bingo gamelots of great prizes and up to 12 chances to win. Just read some books.

I recently read “Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body” by Martin Pistorius. This was a New York Times bestseller and a true story about a twelve-year-old that fell ill, lost his voice and stopped eating. Doctors were mystified and within 18 months he was wheelchair-bound. The book is about his eventual recovery after more than 12 years of living with those around him believing him to be unaware and unable to communicate. It was a different genre from what I usually read and I enjoyed it.

Some new non-fiction to our shelves are “Air Warriors: the Inside Story of the Making of A Navy Pilot” by Douglas C. Waller; “Ten Days in a Mad-House: A Story of the Intrepid Reporter” by Nellie Bly; “Thin Blue Lie” The Failure of High-Tech Policing” by Matt Stroud; “The Whole Story of Climate: What Science Reveals about the Nature of Endless Change” by E. Kirsten Peters; “Natural Causes: an epidemic of wellness, the certainty of dying, and killing ourselves to live longer” by Barbara Ehrenreich; “History’s Great Untold Stories” by Joseph Cummins; “Where are they Buried? How did they Die? Fitting ends and final resting places of the famous, infamous, and noteworthy” by Tod Benoit; and “Children of the Western Plains: the nineteenth century experience” by Marilyn Irvin Holt.

New junior fiction include titles from the Spirit Animals Series including titles “The Burning Tide”, “The Return”, “The Wildcat’s Claw”, “Heart of the Land” and “Immortal Guardians”.

New magazines this week are Consumer Reports, Mother Earth News, Harvard Health Letter, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Prevention, Farmhouse Style and Quilter’s World.
