SUGGESTED READING:

FICTION:

The Blue Bottle Club by Penelope Stokes

Four freinds gathered in a cold, dusty attic on Christmas day in 1929 to make a solumn pact.  "Our dreams for the future", they whispered, placing tiny pieces of paper into a shimmering blue bottle.  Decades later when local news reporter Brenna Delaney stumbles upon that bottle and into the most meaningful story of her career.

Found in the fiction section under STO.

The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall.  But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions she discovers she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear.  Moving between contemporary Maine and depression-era Minnesota, "Orphan Train" is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience.  Between 1854 and 1929 so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fate would be determined by pure luck.

Found in the fiction section under KLI.



NON-FICTION:

Coming Home to Myself by Wynonna Judd

A song of personal discovery that taught Wynonna Judd to love, not just what she does, but who she is.  From a truly exceptional woman comes an unexpected memoir of survival, strength, hope and forgiveness filled with an exultant and empowering message certain to resonate with those who have ever dreamed of finding themselves. 

Found in Non-fiction under BIOGRAPHIES.
