Wanna Be Inspired?

You may have noticed that we've had a major shift in our collection.   And... did you know that we have an area where our Inspirational fiction is shelved?  Seek and ye shall find... or ask one of us.  We would love to help you find the author you are looking for. Here are a few authors that are located in this section:

And the Runner Up is...

If you liked this year’s Gulf Coast Reads selection (One Amazing Thing) you should consider reading the runner up book, Zeitoun by Dave Eggers .  This New York Times bestselling title is also a 2010 American Book Award winner and the choice for this month's Evening Book Club discussion.

Children's Book Series

So, your kid comes come from school one day and ask you if you could check at the library for a Candy Apple book or maybe a My Weird School Daze book or maybe a My Sister the Vampire book and  they don't know the author. What do you do? Have no fear. Stop by one of the information desks and ask one of us. We updated our children's series section and it should be much easier to find those titles. Instead of being in author alphabetical order, they are in order according to the title of the series. Hopefully this will make it easier to find.

BOOKS CAN BE LIFE CHANGING

 

 

One of my favorite authors is Pat Conroy.  I have always enjoyed letting him carry me away on the stories he writes.  I get wrapped up in the characters and the story itself.  Many of the people in his books are people I feel I know or have met in my life.

Pat Conroy is passionate about his work.  You can feel the passion as you read his books.  In reading his latest book I find he is passionate about reading, books, libraries, stories and the people who write them.   He shares how his mother influenced him from an early age to read.  Certain teachers encouraged him to read.  Libraries gave him access to read.

His life was changed by books and authors, helping him become the writer he is today.
