This week’s staff pick is “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” by Kate DiCamillo. Our staffer loved this book so much she told us all about it for days.  Written by the author of “The Tale of Despereaux” and “Because of Winn-Dixie” this book has the same kind of characters who leap off the page and into your heart and never leave.

Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely. 

And then, one day, he was lost. 

Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hobos’ camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.”–Taken from Goodreads.com

Look for it in the catalog here.

The Second Saturday Book Club is back and meeting at a new time!  Join us on Saturday, September 13th for a discussion of Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.  New members always welcome!

1987. ThereRifkaBrunt_Tell-the-Wolves’s only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that’s her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn’s company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June’s world is turned upside down. But Finn’s death brings a surprise acquaintance into June’s life—someone who will help her to heal, and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart.

Meetings take place from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Community Room.  Limited copies available at the Reference Desk.
