Fantastical, Escapist Reads and a Bit of Royalty To Boot
Anna and Elisabeth from the Children's Library presented today. Elisabeth, who is a bit of a "queenafile" (and loving the new streaming TV series The Crown -- she highly recommends it) presented Game of Crowns to the group today, raving about the explosive tattle tale tidbit kind of House of Windsor news that they, the Royals, never wanted to be revealed. Fun, interesting and entertaining. Anna, her first visit to our place beside the fire, brought fantastical engaging YA stories, good crossovers to adult interests, about erasing difficult hard to live with histories; and a girl hoodwinking her scheming uncle and sets out on the Oregon Trail to "sense" -- a special trait she has of finding gold.
Jen, at the top of the hour, brought escapist treasures: Atol's A Gentleman in Moscow and "'it's the next progression to Mad Men," says Jen, "Good Girls Revolt, which is also a streaming series on Amazon, that is so good!"
The final eight are titles vetted as terrific reads by the BBTF group; sort of like a double vetting; the librarians recommend to the group and then the group reads what they want and, if we like, suggest it to be placed on this newsy list. All for you. If you'd like to join us, we meet every Wednesday, 3pm at the first floor fireplace.
