Great Book!

The Pearl That Broke Its Shell
by Nadia Hashimi

Outstanding. Just totally outstanding. Fans of Khaled Hosseini’s Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns will love this one, perhaps even MORE.  I will be honest – I almost quit. I had a really hard time dealing with the way women/girls are treated in this book. I am glad I didn’t stop. These are some amazing people &  amazing stories. And who knows – perhaps they were inspired by true stories? We will never know.

Think Outside the Box!

Do you ever feel like you should be trying a new author or genre, but never know where to start? Do you want to read something outside of your comfort zone? Do you feel like you might be missing a really good book that is tucked away in our stacks?! Well our staff can help! Every couple of weeks our librarians think of themes and place them on display. Our staff pick/display area is located on the main floor near the stacks. Don’t miss them!
