West University Book Club-Selection for February 1

Salvage the BonesTitle to be discussed: Salvage the Bones, By Jesmyn Ward.  Wednesday February 1, at 11 a.m.  Review: "Ward uses fearless, toughly lyrical language to convey this family’s close-knit tenderness [and] the sheer bloody-minded difficulty of rural African American life... It’s an eye-opening heartbreaker that ends in hope… You owe it to yourself to read this book." —Library Journal (starred review)

Cookie Decorating Program

  40 children had a great time decorating round and square sugar cookies.  Different colors of frosting was offered in addition to a wide variety of colored sprinkles.  Some friends shared sprinkles to spread a variety on their cookies.  It was a nice activity on a chilly winter afternoon.
