Bridge of time by Lewis Buzbee is a perfect book for older readers who are interested in earning the Time Travel badge. A wrinkle in time propels best friends Lee Jones and Jones Lee back to the summer Mark Twain spent in San Francisco. The class trip they were on was a total loser, so they snuck away to discuss the pending divorces of their parents. Upon awaking from a nap in a lighthouse they find the Golden Gate bridge has fanished, their cell phones don't work, and they are clueless as to how to get back to their class and/or time. Then they meet this young man named Sam Clemens who is on the run from a mysterious stranger, who soon is after Lee and Jone, too. A suspenseful summer, sci-fi, time-travel treat for all those who delve into its pages.
Copper Tom incorporates cool, sometimes arcane, rhythms into accessible songs. He draws inspiration from American roots music, including old time country, blues and roots rock and roll. He might even throw in a little New Orleans funk, Trinidadian calypso, reggae and some fun tales to boot. Join us on Wednesday, July 25 from 7:00-8:00 PM as we sing and dance to Copper Tom's eclectic music.
According to a statement by the Galapagos National Park Service, the last surviving Pinta Giant Tortoise has passed away, making the subspecies extinct. The age of "Lonesome George" was estimated at least 100 years. The cause of George's death is unknown, though advanced age is not likely: the 5-foot, 200-lb tortoise was expected to live well over 200 years.
