October, It’s a Spooky Time of Year,
…and this is the theme for one of our first floor book displays. There are plenty of books on how to celebrate Halloween. Get ideas for costumes, parties, recipes, crafts and decorations. The display also includes lots spooky reads, both fiction and nonfiction. Fiction books by Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe and Bram Stokes are some of classics in this display. Also included in the display are nonfiction titles on haunted houses and paranormal happenings. October and Halloween, it’s a fun time of year and a good time for a silly or not so silly ghost story.
The second display is Way Back Machine-Nonfiction Best Sellers of the Past. As the title suggests, reading can be like a time travel adventure. This display includes titles from history such as Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir, The Wars of the Roses by Dan Jones and The Witches: Salem 1692 by Stacy Schiff, to those about more contemporary times, such as Leadership by Rudolph W. Giuliani and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson . It’s not only about history but includes titles on psychology, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by John Gray and The Art of Happiness by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutter, M.D. Many more topics, such as art and music, are included in this impressive collection of best sellers.
Currently our two mini displays are Vince Flynn, a prolific American author of political thriller novels and Kazuo Ishiguro, the 2017 Nobel Prize Winner for literature.
On the third floor the health book display is October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Learn the signs and symptoms of this disease, and how to cope with a diagnosis. As usual, the display contains many informative handouts.
Winners is the theme for the second display on the third floor. The winners are from all categories such as the Oscars, the Olympics, the Grammys, Medal of Freedom, World Series, Nobel Prize and more. Learn about the various fields of expertise and the individuals who excel and win.
Wishing you an informative and entertaining read.
