Our recommendations for summer reading continue with two recommendations from Sharon Wiles-Young, Director Library Access and one from Tim McGeary, Team Leader Library Technology.
Rich Boy by Sharon Pomerantz. In her first review, Sharon tells us that Rich Boy is a story about Robert Vishniak’s” journey from suburban Philadelphia to high society New York City in the 80s” that asks “what defines success and self?” This debut novel from Sharon Pomerantz will definitely be appearing on my nook Color in the near future.
How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O’Neal. In her second review, Sharon summarizes How To Bake A Perfect Life as being about “mother and daughter complex relationships interspersed with recipes and baking bread.” Sounds like a great read for a holiday weekend with the family, Sharon. All the angst and none of the carbs!
Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned To Ask the Questions, by Rachel Held Evans. Tim writes, “Rachel Held Evans recounts her experiences growing up in Dayton, TN, famous for the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925. With fearless honesty, Evans describes how her faith survived her doubts to re-imagine Christianity in a postmodern context, where knowing all the answers isn’t as important as asking the questions.” You had me at monkey, Tim.
Whatever you decide to read, I wish you a safe and happy holiday weekend. Both libraries will be open the following hours over the weekend: Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Sunday from noon to 5 PM. Both libraries will be open for regular summer hours on Monday. Regular summer hours are from 8 AM to 5 PM for Linderman Library and from 8 AM to 10 PM for Fairchild Martindale Library.
