No Winter Blahs Here

winter

Well that white fluffy stuff has finally made itself seen and decided to stay awhile. Now the icy cold weather will be moving in within days. But that is OK because if you would like something fun and different to do, come to the library where I have set up a fun “Friends in Winter” puzzle that everyone is welcome to come in and put together. For the the kids, new fun Christmas color sheets.While you are doing that, you can enjoy some hot chocolate or hot tea that will be out every day for the month of December. Don’t forget your library card either. I have all our Christmas books and movies out too! Hope to see you here! ~ Amy

Featured Book

small-great-things-hc-400w

New in today and our featured book is “Small Great Things” by Jodi Picoult!!

SYNOPSIS:

Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?

Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family—especially her teenage son—as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others—and themselves—might be wrong.

With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. Small Great Things is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.
