LIBRARY NEWS   

November 2019

 

Fellow readers we have a number of

new selections that provide informative

and enjoyable reading for you this month.

 

One of our highlighted fiction books

this month is Cape Light by painter and

writer Thomas Kinkade and Katherine

Spencer. It is in large print (denoted

by the red dot on the book's spine.)

It is one of a trilogy that we have and

takes place in a small New England

town of present day. The characters

and story are engaging with faith,

community and love interwoven through-

out.

 

As the Christmas season is approaching we

have the offering of The Handmaid and the

Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg. In this short

novel the author retells Joseph and Mary’s

story. She brings to light the vulnerability

and the humanity of this couple God has

chosen to be Jesus’ parents.

 

Our non-fiction book this month is Dear

White America-- Letter to a New Minority

(another book from our UMW reading list.)

This multifaceted topic is covered in the

readable format of a letter by racial justice

activist, teacher and writer Tim Wise. It

helps the reader to see through the eyes of

people of color--to look at our country’s

history and our own. It helps us to look

within ourselves and examine our attitudes,

actions and emotions and theirs. Well worth

the time.

 

Lastly we have two new books to our book

cart donated by the Sundell’s. Not Ashamed

The Story of Jews for Jesus by Ruth Tucker

and Unveiling Islam by the Caner brothers.
