February 2019 – Book of the Month

Educated Book Tara Westmover
One of the book clubs that met in the store this month read “Educated” by Tara Westover. It is an account of the struggle for self-invention, a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. Raised in a Mormon-survivalist home, Tara self-educates until the age of 17 when she is admitted to Brigham-Young University. This is her first novel.

“Tara’s process of self-discovery is beautifully captured. It’s the kind of book that I think everyone will enjoy, no matter what genre you usually pick up. She’s a talented writer, and I suspect this book isn’t the last we’ll hear from her. I can’t wait to see what she does next.” – Bill Gates

January Book of the Month

Searching for colleges this winter?

We love this book by Loren Pope.  It  helps parents/students cut through the noise of annual rankings, thousands of pamphlets that show up in the mail and endless recommendations from family/friends.

College should and does change your life – to find your “ideal spot” – this book looks at not just the end results but how you can be educated for life.

December Book of the Month

Who knew that there was a story before “Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue” in 1492????  We love a deep dive into good historical fiction and this book does not disappoint…..

The Children Of the First Man tells the fascinating story of a European people gradually absorbed into the American culture until their literacy was lost and their Christian religion submerged in the legend of Madoc, the First Man.

Also a favorite as a fellow mid-west resident (an Indiana neighbor), we are thrilled to highlight Mr Thom and this wonderful book he has shared with us.  Stop by the store – we have it in stock as well as several of his other novels.
