Sure to become a book club favorite, Kirkus Reviews notes, (Trouble the Water) “…will seize readers from the first page and not let go.”

“When a young woman travels from a British factory town to South Carolina in the 1840s, she becomes involved with a vigilante abolitionist and the Underground Railroad while trying to navigate the complexities of Charleston high society and falling in love”-from the publisher

Our April Book Displays

Get Cooking is the theme for our first book display.  What a great collection of cookbooks– cookbooks for healthy eating, diabetics, allergy-friendly, gluten-free, and weight-watchers. There are some great ethnic cookbooks for Italian cookery and the Kosher baker. There are cookbooks for the busy family, cooking for two, the picky eater, and comfort food. The collection even has The Can’t Cook Book: 100+ Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified by Jessica Seinfeld.

 

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., our second book display is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.  The books cover the man, his dream, and his life. Included topics are the history of the Civil Rights Movement, the March on Washington, and the Freedom Walkers. Also in this display are biographies of Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, James Meredith and Stokely Carmichael.

 

Our 2 mini displays are Holocaust Remembrance Day – April 12, 2018 and In Remembrance – Anita Shreve , bestselling author.

 

Our displays on the third floor:

April is Autism Awareness Month and is the theme for the health display.  It includes books that offer practical guides to autism, understanding autism, and how to care for a child with autism. Also included are how to help autistic persons achieve their dreams and goals. Besides the books, there are lots of handouts.

Celebrate National Library Week April 8-14 is next display (something that is near and dear to me).  Some of the topics covered are the history of libraries from ancient times to the modern public library, how to do research at the library, the Library of Congress and the Dewey Decimal System.

Last but not least, in honor of April is National Poetry Month, is the blue bucket of Poems for your Pocket. Come and take a poem. The blue bucket is sitting at the reference desk on the third floor.

And remember April showers bring May flowers and Syosset Library brings great reads!

**Displays are subject to change during the month**
