Dead End in NorveltHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Dead End in Norvelt
by Jack Gantos


Recommended by: Lois, Associate Librarian
Do you need a good laugh?  Come with Jack Gantos to Norvelt, PA for a memorable summer in 1962 when he is grounded for accidentally firing a live bullet from his dad's Japanese sniper rifle (among other things).  The only time 12-year-old Jack is allowed to leave home is to help Mrs. Volker--an elderly neighbor and the town medical examiner--compose obituaries for the local paper. (Jack actually gets out a lot, since all the old ladies in town start dying mysteriously.)  If you appreciate the weird, the gross and the wacky--this book is for you!

Bookcover: My cat, the silliest cat in the worldHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: My Cat, the Silliest Cat in the World
by Gilles Bachelet

Recommended by: Debbie, Associate Librarian
If you like cats, or elephants, or both, you'll love this picture book.  The author is describing his pet, comparing his "cat" to what other people say cats are like.  Just reading the words, you'd never know his pet was anything other than an ordinary house cat.  However, in the illustrations, his "cat" is actually an elephant.  It's really quite funny.

The Laramie ProjectHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Laramie Project
by Moises Kaufman and the members of Tectonic Theater Project


Recommended by: Joseph, Nonfiction Librarian
In 1998, Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in Wyoming because of his sexual orientation. In this unique examination of the events that surrounded Shepard's death and its aftermath, the author and his theater group present a play written from oral interviews of Laramie residents. The result is a surprisingly intense and moving work.
