Our church library has some more chocolate for you! Lee McKinney Woodyard is back in another "Chocoholic" mystery. This time, it's "The Chocolate Pirate Plot." In Warner Pier, a movie called "Young Blackbeard" is all the rage, and Ten Huis Chocolade is cashing in by selling chocolate treasure chests, pirate hats, and ships. Then, a group of pirates starts boarding yachts on Lake Michigan. Since they entertain the occupants and their weapons are fake, nobody thinks anything of it until a body washes ashore. Can Lee solve the mystery before anything else happens? It's worth checking out.
Your library purchases several new books each month so be sure to frequently check the "new book" shelf and the shelf in the hallway. Here are a few recent titles:
- for adults - In Such Good Company - 11Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox by Carol Burnett. Go back to the good ol' days of TV when Carol Burnett and her funny friends delighted us with 276 episodes filled with skits and music.
- for teens - Last Man Out by Mike Lupica. This novel combines courage, family, football, and firefighting to teach us a life lesson.
- for children - Safe in a Storm by Stephen Swinburne. Our last hurricane Matthew reminded us all of the desire to be safe in a storm. This comforting book tells us how and where and with whom.
"Sleigh bells ring; are you listening?" It's time to be thinking of holiday preparations. Library Club will be having its Christmas dinner on Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30 at Judy Wright's house. We will be discussing Debbie Macomber's new novel The Twelve Days of Christmas to help put us in the holiday spirit. Our Christmas donation this year will be in memory of our beloved member Sue Redding and will go to the church music department to recognize her love of singing. So on the 16th please bring your monetary donation and the food you signed up to share.
