South of superior by Ellen Airgood — When Madeline Stone walks away from Chicago and moves five hundred miles north to the coast of Lake Superior, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, she isn't prepared for how much her life will change.
Death comes to Pemberley by P.D. James — It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy's magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable until a coach careens up the drive carrying Lydia, Elizabeth's disgraced sister, who stumbles out of the carriage, hysterical, shrieking that her husband Wickham has been murdered.
Shelter: a novel by Frances Greenslade — For sisters Maggie and Jenny growing up in the Pacific mountains in the early 1970s, life felt nearly perfect. But, not long after Maggie's tenth birthday, their father is killed in a logging accident. A few months later, their mother drops them at a neighbor's house, promising to return. She never does. Even as they struggle to understand how their mother could abandon them, they hope that she is fighting her way back to the daughters who adore her and who need her so desperately. Join us Thursday, July 9 at noon.
CantonTargetTesting, an ACT preparation nonprofit founded by high school students, is offering free ACT preparation to students. This class is designed to raise students’ scores in the least amount of time by focusing on weaknesses, working on the application of knowledge to the ACT, and learning only the essential content. TargetTesting further increases preparation efficiency by individualizing lessons.
The instructors are experienced on the subject of standardized testing and have all earned scores of 35 or above on the ACT. They have also spent time substituting for and observing lessons of previous TargetTesting sessions. The experiences they have gained working with students in this capacity have prepared them to teach the class.
