Bookcover: Daughter of the ForestHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
Recommended by: Melanie, Librarian
Daughter of the Forest, though based on an ancient Celtic legend, is so much more. Set in the Celtic world where old magic struggles with new religion, young Sorcha, must face insurmountable challenges to save her brothers. This is the first in a series that is a beautifully written, magical story of loyalty and love.

Bookcover: The Year 1000Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Year 1000: What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium by Robert Lacey and Danny Danziger.
Recommended by: Joseph, Nonfiction Librarian
In this interesting little volume, Lacey and Danziger take us into a medieval world which is at times both very alike and very different from our own.  Using a contemporary calendar to guide the reader through the months of the year, and with doses of humor and trivia along the way, we are introduced to the daily life of royalty, churchmen and, more often, the ordinary man and woman.  We learn how they worked, how they played, how they talked, and even how they ate.  The Year 1000 is an accessible overview of the period and a surprisingly entertaining read.
