Giddings Library News Corner

by Judy Belyeu

We have a nice assortment of large print fiction books at the Giddings Public Library. Steven King’s book, 11/22/63, is about English teacher, Jake Epping who is enlisted by a friend to travel back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This is a mission for which he must befriend troubled loner Lee Harvey Oswald. The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht is a story about a young physician in a war-torn Balkan country who takes over her grandfather’s search for a mythical ageless vagabond while referring to a worn copy of Rudyard Kiplings “The Jungle Book”.

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown is about three sisters who were named after famous Shakespearean characters. They were brought together to care for their ailing mother to discover that everything they had been avoiding might prove more worthwhile than expected. Christmas Treasures by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer tells about Reverend Ben, who is recovering from bypass surgery, contemplates his last Christmas as pastor of Cape Light Church and giving his beloved job to the interim minister.

The Last Gunfighter: Dead Before Sundown by William W. Johnstone is another good western about Frank Morgan and a group of survivors who encounter a dangerous enemy with the means to supply murderous Mitis rehels with stolen U.S . Army Gatling guns.

Bridge Classes will be starting, Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 1:00pm – 5:00pm for 7-8 weeks.

The Library is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 until 1.
