Upcoming Titles for 2017:

 

Sept. 25  Ash Falls  (Warren Read)  Linda Senter

Set in a moss-draped, Pacific Northwest mountain town, Ash Falls (inspired by Granite Falls), is the story of a closely-connected community both held together and torn apart by one man's single act of horrific violence. As the residents of Ash Falls - including the escaped prisoner's ex-wife and teenage son - wait on edge, wondering if and when he will reappear, they come to discover that they are held prisoner not by the killer in the woods outside their town, but by the chains of their own creation. This local author's first novel is both engrossing and eloquent. The Everett Public  Library has two copies, Sno-Isle has three.


October 23 Oregon Trail: a New American Journey (Rinker Buck) Shirley Solberg

Author Rinker Buck brings us along on his 2000-mile covered wagon journey, recreating in the present historic Oregon Trail treks of the past. His developing relationship to his brother, to two mules and a horse, to people along the trail, and to his own inner feelings and motivations make this book more than a simple travel memoir. The vivid  descriptions of the vast American West are enriched by Buck’s subtle, wry humor. 

(No book set but Everett Public Library has multiple copies in several formats.)


November 27 We each share “what I am reading.”
