Book Bunch Reads The Fast and the Furriest for November


Book Bunchers in grades 3-5 read Andy Behrens's The Fast and the Furriest for their November 20th gathering at 4:00.  The book discussion will be followed by a short activity. Books are available in the Young Readers' Room on the lower level of the library.


About the Book
Your best friend can really change your life, even if he's a dog: That's the message of this funny and inspiring story. Everyone in the Pugh family is athletic...except for 12-year-old Kevin. He prefers video games to sports, and he is determined to never play another game of kickball in his life. Fortunately, Kevin has some equally lazy company: his dog, Cromwell, who once passed out while chasing a squirrel. Then Cromwell sees a dog-agility competition on TV, and soon he's jumping through hoops, running everywhere, and dragging Kevin outside to the nearest obstacle course.

Thanks to some financial backing from Kevin's best friend and some help from a mysterious dog trainer, it looks like Cromwell might actually have a chance at the big canine athletic competition. Can Kevin help his crazy dog reach his dream, and maybe even learn a few things about himself along the way?

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area and Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
In the virtual reality game Heir Apparent, there are way too many ways to get killed -- and Giannine seems to be finding them all. Unless she can get the magic ring, find the stolen treasure, answer the dwarf's dumb riddles, impress the head-chopping statue, charm the army of ghosts, fend off the barbarians, and defeat the man eating dragon, she'll never win. And if she doesn't win, she will die -- for real this time.
While playing a total immersion virtual reality game of kings and intrigue, fourteen-year-old Giannine learns that demonstrators have damaged the equipment to which she is connected, and she must win the game quickly or be damaged herself.

All Booked Up Reads The Chaperone for November


book cover
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty is the chosen novel for All Booked Up's next meeting on November 5th at 6:30. Copies of the book are available at the upper level Circulation Desk.

About the Book
Only a few years before becoming a famous silent-film star and an icon of her generation, a fifteen-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita, Kansas, to study with the prestigious Denishawn School of Dancing in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone, who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle, a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip, has no idea what she’s in for. Young Louise, already stunningly beautiful and sporting her famous black bob with blunt bangs, is known for her arrogance and her lack of respect for convention. Ultimately, the five weeks they spend together will transform their lives forever.
 
For Cora, the city holds the promise of discovery that might answer the question at the core of her being, and even as she does her best to watch over Louise in this strange and bustling place she embarks on a mission of her own. And while what she finds isn’t what she anticipated, she is liberated in a way she could not have imagined. Over the course of Cora’s relationship with Louise, her eyes are opened to the promise of the twentieth century and a new understanding of the possibilities for being fully alive.
 
Drawing on the rich history of the 1920s, ’30s, and beyond—from the orphan trains to Prohibition, flappers,  and the onset of the Great Depression to the burgeoning movement for equal rights and new opportunities for women—Laura Moriarty’s The Chaperone illustrates how rapidly everything, from fashion and hemlines to values and attitudes, was changing at this time and what a vast difference it all made for Louise Brooks, Cora Carlisle, and others like them.

Next Up: March by Geraldine Brooks
