LIBRARY NEWS   

 JANUARY 2020

 

Happy New Year! As the New Year begins why don’t

you pick up a book by a new to you author, topic

or genre? We have three selections highlighted

this month.

 

Our first fiction selection is the first book in the

Remnant Trilogy--Noah Man of Destiny. Written

by Tim Chaffey, the content manager for the Ark

Encounter and Creation Museum. The reader

travels back to the pre-Flood world and what

Noah’s life could have been like. “Non-fiction

portions at the end of the book help explain

historical concepts and provide sections that

deal with issues or concerns that might arise in

the account.” Found the story interesting and

an easy read. Our library also has book 2 and 3

of the trilogy.

 

Our second fiction selection is Shadows of the

Past by Emily Thomas. This story takes place

in Blue Hill, Pennsylvania in a charming Victorian

house that has been turned into a library by the

main character. Mystery and history come together

as an old map that was to have been used by Lewis

and Clark is discovered. How did it come to be

there and what does it mean?

 

Our third selection is the Reluctant Pilgrim by

Enuma Okoro. The author is American born

of Nigerian parents who when 6 traveled back

to live in Africa for much of her childhood before

returning to the U.S. The subtitle tells the central

theme of the book...A Moody Somewhat Self-

Indulgent Introvert’s Search for Spiritual Com-

munity. Enuma writes with insight, humor and

honesty about her search for a church community

and her experiences when she finds one.

 

Happy reading!

 

Karen Wambaugh, Librarian
