Summerfield-Petersburg Book Club

The Maybee Branch Library's Book Club recommends Radium Girls The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore. This nonfiction title recounts the struggles of hundreds of women who were exposed to radium while working factory jobs during World War I.  They were mislead by their employers and became embroiled in a battle for workers' rights. Their legacy is helping to keep workers safe today. Do you like a self-affirming read?  Try Someday a Bird Will Poop On You : a life lesson by Sue Salvi. This amusing book has a powerful message. Maybee staff says, "It's a must read for everyone."

For nonfiction, Summerfield-Petersburg Staff recommends a couple of health books. The first title is The Type 1 life : a road map for parents of children with newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes by Jessica Freeman.  This title offers insight into how an actual person with diabetes copes through her lifetime with the disease. The second title is Anthony Williams’ Celery Juice : the most powerful medicine of our time healing millions worldwide.  It Introduces celery juice's ability to create improvements on every level of our health. Includes instructions on how to make the juice, how much to drink, and when to drink it, and what to expect as your body begins to detox.

Are you a fiction reader?  Summerfield-Petersburg staff recommends The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart. Twelve-year-old Coyote and her father rush, in their old school bus, to Poplin Springs, Washington,  to save a memory box. It's buried in a park that will soon be demolished. Even though this book is a juvenile chapter book, it has so much soul, and is filled with such heartwarming moments that everyone, of any age, will enjoy the story of Coyote. This book grabs you, has characters that you'll fall in love with, and you will be rooting for them until the very last page.

Do you like historical fiction with a little mystery?  Try Sharyn McCrumb’s She Walks These Hills. This book interlaces the story of Katie Wyler with present day. Katie was kidnapped by the Shawnee in 1779, she escaped, and walked hundreds of miles back to her home in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. Now her ghost is seen walking the hills.  Kate's story is entwined with the lives of four current day residents of the same place in Tennessee.   All five stories gradually twist closer and closer together to a very memorable, though tough, ending.

Are you looking for a new mystery series to read?  Try the Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow! Kate is a retired FBI agent who has gone back to her homestead in an Alaskan National Park to live.  All she wants is to live her own life, quietly, with her half-wolf, half-husky dog.  But, of course, in every book there is a murder mystery that pulls her in, which she must solve.   Each story also deals with the clash of cultures between the native Aleuts and the outside world.  It’s a great series about a very capable and strong woman living a tough life.

Perhaps you would prefer a contemporary novel with a touch of romance?  Try Sarah Dessen’s The Rest of the Story.  Publisher’s Weekly says it’s “… a rich, patient story about a teen girl who craves family and an understanding of her roots after suffering a tragic loss.”

Maybee invites you to stop into the branch on July 23rd.  It’s National Vanilla Ice Cream Day and the last day of the summer reading programs. Pick up a refreshing treat and have the children attend the program at 3:00 pm.  Younger children?  Toddler Time is July 25 at 10:00 am and Tiny Yoga is at 11:30 am.  No registration required.

Summerfield –Petersburg invites you to register for Social Media 101: The Basics. We will be exploring Pinterest on July 24th at 10:00 am.  Upcoming programs include Instagram on July 31st, and Twitter on August 7th.

For a complete list of programs at each location, access our calendar.
