Ellen FosterEllen Foster (Kaye Gibbons): Ellen Foster is the often heart-wrenching tale of an 11-year-old girl who loses her dearly loved mother through suicide and is left to coexist with her alcoholic father. Gibbons has produced a warm and caring first novel about a backwoods child persevering through hard times to establish a new and satisfying identity. (Note: Beginning August 20, participants can pick up a copy of the book at the Canton Public Library's Adult Reference Desk).
