This Week's Spotlight is on a books to get you conversing



"Bookstores, like libraries, are the physical manifestation of the wide world's longest, most thrilling conversation."

Twenty years ago, Richard Russo wrote NOBODY'S FOOL, a story of Donald "Sully" Sullivan and his neighbors in the fictional small town of North Bath, NY. Then Hollywood made a movie, starring Jessica Tandy in her last role, Paul Newman as the endearing Sully and a wonderful cast of supporting characters that breathed deeper life into the town and its people. Now, twenty years later, the conversation continues in NOBODY'S FOOL, a worthy companion to the original book. Don't be surprised if you find yourself revisiting NOBODY'S FOOL (in book and film) and you may, like me, hear Paul Newman's voice in every word Sully utters! 


"The year I turned twelve, I learned how to lie." So begins the Prologue of WOLF HOLLOW, Lauren Wolk's first novel for young adults. It is an exquisite book, with an honest heart and language that soars. Set in 1943 in rural western Pennsylvania, in the shadow of two wars, it tells, in the voice of twelve-year-old Annabelle, a story of her coming of age; of learning that lies, even told for the 'right' reasons, have far-reaching consequences. It is a story of finding within one's self the power to stand up to fear and injustice and do the right thing. It is a story that will stay with you long after you turn the last page, one you will share and have thrilling conversations about.
