With Remembrance Day approaching, we suggest reading one of the many books we have in the library that commemorate the courageous battles of men and women fighting for our freedom.

*The evening with local author Susan Raby-Dun will be a discussion of her book, Bonfire The Chestnut Gentleman. A book signing will follow should you wish to buy a copy. Remember Christmas is coming soon! In appreciation to Susan, we ask for a small donation. Coffee and tea will be served.

Please sign up for these programs at the library or on the bulletin board, because space is at a premium.

Alice Munro, winner of last year’s Nobel Prize for Literature,has written a book of short stories called Dear Life that are captivating. She writes with insight about childhood relationships and Canadian small town life. In the latter part of the book, she looks back over her 83 years and her stories become autobiographical in feeling, though not entirely so in fact.

Happy Reading
