Book: Things the Grandchildren Should Know by Mark Oliver Everett

Recommended by: Joseph, Adult Nonfiction Librarian

Mark Everett, otherwise known in the music world as 'E', is an ordinary guy with problems. He's also the singer-songwriter behind the Eels, an indie rock band that continues to defy convention and accumulate fans worldwide. Since his family was first struck by tragedy when E was a teenager, he has been through a lot of heartache which he describes in this memoir in plain, straightforward prose. Unlike most celebrity lives, E's pain seems thrust upon him by fate and is not the result of rock n' roll excess. That fact alone makes hisĀ resilienceĀ and his life story a triumph. Learn more by watching Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives, and listening to EELS.

Book: Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner

Recommended by: Natalie, Technical Assistant

A fun read that offers an explanation for why snowmen look different the day after you make them: they play at night! Each page is beautifully illustrated, and has a look-and-find aspect. Can you find the dinosaur on every page?

Book: The Christmas Chronicles: The Legend of Santa Claus by Tim Slover

Recommended by: Debbie, Associate Librarian

This is a fun, imaginative version of how Santa became Santa, starting with the orphan, Klaus, who was taken in by a guild of craftsmen in 1343. After the Black Death had swept through the land, he made toys for all the surviving children in his village and delivered them, with the priest's blessing, on Christmas Eve to put some joy back into their lives. Those children told the children from other villages, and Klaus, not wanting to disappoint any of them, found himself with more deliveries to make than he could do in one night. Enter his (soon to be) wife, Anna, and her reindeer, Dasher. (The magic and the flying come in later.)
