We asked, and a few of you answered: What was your favorite book of 2014? Why?
“The courage of the main character in surviving.”
“Complex and well drawn characters, asks big questions with humility, spiritual, honest, beautifully written, an engaging story line.”
(2 votes) “The story of two young people caught up in the horror of war. Almost as good as the Cellist of Sarajavo.” “A beautifully written book with memorable characters set during World War II. Hated to see it end.”
“I hated to put this book down. It is historical fiction and a descriptive portrait of a fascinating, intelligent and independent woman.”
“I don’t usually go for post-apocalyptic novels, but this one stands out. Excellent storytelling, memorable passages of beautiful writing.”
Local artist Jane Carlson has hung an exhibit of recent work in the library’s John F. Chick meeting room. Stop in anytime the library is open to see the show. Highly recommended!
