Books Worth Another Look
Guest review by Hilda Partridge
Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde
August Shroeder is a burned out science teacher. He has been on the road every summer and had planned to travel to Yellowstone with his son. Now he is making the trip with his son’s ashes. August ends up with twelve- and seven-year-old boys as passengers due to their Dad going to jail.
An awesome book as I did not want to see it end. I look forward to reading more of Catherine’s books.
P.s. from Ook: We read this one too — a quiet, moving story about families and ‘found family’ that spans a number of years.
The guitar club for children and teens is carrying on with Krista at the helm. We meet on the first Saturday of every month from 2 to 3 pm. If you’re learning the guitar (or some other instrument) and would like to hang out with a group, or if you don’t have a guitar but are interested in learning, come and join us! We hope soon to be adding some more instruments to our collection for in-library use — including a piano! Maybe we’ll have to change our name … The Library Saturday Music Club … or maybe Ook’s Noise (that’s a Shakespeare joke)!
