Bookcover: The Housekeeper and the ProfessorHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Housekeeper and the Professor

by Yoko Ogawa


Recommended by: Karen
He is a brilliant math professor with a peculiar problem--ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. She is an astute young housekeeper, with a ten-year-old son, who is hired to care for him. And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them. So begins the adventure as these three share a family life like no other. Intriguing and innocent are the words I would use to describe this story. A must read.

Bookcover: Deep Water Passage
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Deep Water Passage: a Spiritual Journey at Mid-Life
 
by Ann Linnea


Recommended by: Melanie
The author's grueling, 65-day journey by kayak around Lake Superior was a spiritual quest, a search for meaning in her life. This account is both an engrossing adventure and a story of awakening and inspiration. Each time I re-read this beautiful book I come away with new insights and understanding. Ann Linnea began her writing career at Utah State University authoring hiking and skiing guides as a U.S. Forest Service naturalist.

Bookcover: THE ART FORGERHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: THE ART FORGER

by B. A. Shapiro

Recommended by: Lois
I can't stop thinking about THE ART FORGER by B. A. Shapiro. If you're a fan of mysteries set in the art world mixed with a bit of romance and history, this book is for you! Blacklisted artist Claire Roth makes a living copying classic paintings for a reproduction company. Then one day her dream of a one-woman show in a fabulous gallery seems within her grasp. She'll get her reward if she's able to fool museum professionals and re-create a stolen painting by Degas. Not just any painting but one from the still unsolved 1990 art heist at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. (If you're a curious person, you'll read up on quirky, rich Isabella and the famous art theft that's background for this story.) What would you be willing to do to secure the one thing you most desire? Claire's quest kept me turning those pages.
