My darling Cecilia, if you're reading this, then I've died... Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret-something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive... Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all-she's an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia-or each other-but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband's secret. Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses - and, ultimately, ourselves.</p><p></p> http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/new-book-club-bag-kit-24#comments Wed, 19 Nov 2014 21:56:26 +0000 kimba 76623 at http://www.cantonpl.org New Books on the Biography Shelf http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/new-books-biography-shelf-13 <p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1616014"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1616014.jpg" /></span>Rozelle: a biography</a> by Jerry Izenberg ; foreword by David Stern</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1618370"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1618370.jpg" /></span>Not that kind of girl: a young woman tells you what she's "learned"</a> by Lena Dunham</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1618371"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1618371.jpg" /></span>Scribe: my life in sports</a> by Bob Ryan</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1619026"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1619026.jpg" /></span>American queen: the rise and fall of Kate Chase Sprague, Civil War "Belle of the North" and gilded age woman of scandal</a> by John Oller</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1612951"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1612951.jpg" /></span>Isabella: the warrior queen</a> by Kirstin Downey</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1619023"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1619023.jpg" /></span>Brian Jones: the making of the Rolling Stones</a> by Paul Trynka</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1618363"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1618363.jpg" /></span>Made in America</a> by Chris Chelios, with Kevin Allen ; forword by Wayne Gretzky</p> <br /><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1615201"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1615201.jpg" /></span>Respect: the life of Aretha Franklin</a> by David Ritz</p> http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/new-books-biography-shelf-13#comments History Parents Seniors Non-fiction Biography Sat, 15 Nov 2014 13:45:00 +0000 SuzyQ 76513 at http://www.cantonpl.org Family Storytimes http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/family-storytimes <img style="float:right;line-height:19.52px;" alt="" src="https://www.cantonpl.org/sites/default/files/images/meg_book.preview.jpg" /><span style="line-height:19.52px;">Family Storytimes begin the week of November 10.

This year there are two categories: <em>Motorized </em>and <em>Unmotorized</em>. In each category we will choose winners for the following divisions: k-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th grades, plus a <em>Team</em> division. <strong>Entries must be dropped off between January 5 - 8</strong>. A public viewing will be held January 10 - 11 where patrons will get a chance to cast their vote along with our judges. Winners will be announced at a reception at the close of the contest on Sunday, January 11 at 4:00 PM. <br /><br /><h4>Contest Rules</h4> <br /><ol><li>Use your own LEGO®, Duplo, Megablocks or other LEGO® compatible plastic bricks, motors and materials.
