November Newsletter

Neither hurricane nor story time nor Halloween ghosts will stop us from putting out the newsletter. Here’s the latest news from Plumb Library. Inside you’ll find the November book group selections; two book reviews from the Junior Friends (one is in code); Holiday Open House announcement and request for Silent Auction items; two Family Literacy Month programs; and the annual wreath order form.

The literacy month program that has us the most excited is a visit from the author of The Mighty Mastiff of the Mayflower, Peter Arenstem. Peter is an expert on the Mayflower, and has written several children’s books about the Plimoth colony. He will be at the library on Monday, Nov. 5 at 6:30 p.m. to talk about his book and to sign copies. This is a great gift for children in grades 2-4.

Dear Reader: random posts

It’s a grey and gloomy day. Here are some random links to get you through it:
From Goodreads: The Reading Habits of Democrats and Republicans. And remember that the two Plumb Library book groups have groups on Goodreads.

From NPR, via Bookshelves of Doom: Reading Jane Austen makes your brain work differently. I heard this report this morning on “Morning Edition”, so I’ve just started Pride and Prejudice AGAIN. Maybe this time it will stick.

And lastly,from Hairpin, Texts from Little Women. Hilarious.

“Little Women” from 1933, featuring Katherine Hepburn as the best movie Jo.
