The Three by Sarah Lotz
Four airline planes crash on the same day on different continents of the world with only 3 survivors all of which are children. No one can understand how these three actually survived. Told as if the events actually happened and with the information gathered by the supposed author, THE THREE hooked me from page one. I followed the plot, anxious to uncover the mysterious ending only be exasperated by the last 15-20 pages. It was so good up to that point; however, the ending was just stupid. What a disappointment.
Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen
Quindlen’s memoir looks at life on the other side of being the wife of a young attorney, mother of three, and cub reporter for the New York Times. She is now able to see the world with the maturity and humor of a woman who has “been there and done that.” This is an insightful read for any woman, but especially those faced with the question of “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?”

The Pioneer Library System is celebrating the Art of Reading this fall through events and activities that couple inspiration from literature into art.
This November, the library continues its partnership with the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art through the museum exhibit “Authors to Artists,” featured Nov. 8-23 at the museum, 1900 W. MacArthur in Shawnee.
The exhibit’s goal is to draw attention to the importance of literacy and will feature works of art that address the theme of recycling, either through subject or medium.
