Staff Reading Pick

Book: Ordinary Trauma: A Memoir by Jennifer Sinor

Recommended by: Karen

Sinor writes eloquently about her life describing the events as ordinary yet sometimes traumatic. Her choice of words is clear, her writing concise. As I read, memories in my life emerged with the feelings associated with them. Even though our circumstances are very different, I found I could understand what she was saying by the feeling it evoked inside me. I wanted to savor each word, so I read slowly, sometimes rereading parts to savor as one would a fine meal.

Perception is also key as she remembers an event one way but her mother remembers it differently. She writes: "I have come to understand how the past is a key to the present--how a story, the way we shape a story, tells us little about then and everything about now. In this way, writing memoir makes us more compassionate-toward ourselves and others."

Come in and check it out, or 'selfCheck' it out!

Our new self check-out kiosk is now available for patrons who want to use a self-service kiosk. Provided by a grant from the Utah State Library, patrons may now check out and renew their materials at the kiosk. Patrons can also review their account, checkouts, holds, and charges.
