Book: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Recommended by: Karen

A charming first novel filled with quirky characters going about their everyday lives. Simple, yet refreshingly honest with touches of humor, this book kept me wondering what would happen next.

    Library Open Late for Gallery Walk
    clear

    The library will remain open later than normal on Friday April 10th to participate in the CVCA Gallery Walk. We are hosting prolific artist Cyrene Swallow with music by local musician Robert Linton.

    Cyrene Swallow uses watercolor and oil to make bold color compositions. Her work is rich, deep with color, with many washes and heavy pigment. Her motto was described in Susan Sarback's book, Capturing Radiant Color in Oils as "full color seeing" rather than "local color." Cyrene's peers have said she is a "colorist" and she accepts with pleasure.

    When: Friday, April 10th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Where: Logan Library

    Book: The Martian by Andy Weir

    Recommended by: Melanie

    Science fiction at it's finest. The diary of an astronaut who after a freak storm becomes stranded on Mars when his crew, thinking him dead, abandons the mission. While I am not an engineer, his fight for survival in a harsh world using only those tools on hand was terrifying. Read it before the movie comes out.
