Jo Selling Us Dreams

Jen went renegade again.....

to New York City (and who can blame her, it was a beautiful day) So I pulled the POPULAR and NEW titles from the Wonderwall: 32 Yolks: From My Mother's Table to Working The Line a memoir; Becoming Grandma: The Joys And Science of The New Grandparenting by tv journalist Leslie Stahl; The Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance proof that an ivy-league education is not necessary; and The California Wife Kristen Harnisch's sequel to The Vintner's Daughter. The holds' lists are already starting on these, get your name on the book of your choice soon. Or check out the Wonderwall. If the book is there, it is yours to check out!

Jo, from MatMan, brought dreams.....

....though the novels were truly quite the opposite. Flight of Dreams takes place on the ill-fated final voyage of Germany's zeppelin The Hindenburg; House of Dreams delves into the dark past when French artists, writers and intellectuals had to be smuggled out of France during WWII. To continue with the war, Jo also presented The Summer Before The War that takes place in a small English town whose inhabitants are hopeful the strife in the Balkans is just a mirage however, by fall, the reality beckons and the little town is drained of its men for the front lines in France. Many have enjoyed this book as a period piece like Downton Abbey.

And speaking of Downton Abbey,....

.....Jo also brought two DVD's featuring the grand dame actress Maggie Smith: My Old Lady and The Lady in the Van. Both roles are far from the Dowager Grantham character we have become so fond of but splendidly still impetuously her.

And a love story....

....among all this war stuff, Beatrice and Benedick, is the story of how these two characters from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing had met before their love affair. "A really good beach read," says Jo who read it while she was traveling in Sicily where the story takes place.

Thanks Jo!
