Barb Roark will lead a discussion of "Thank You for All Things," by Sandra Kring. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to read the book in advance. To get a copy, enquire at the library’s information desk.

Kring tells the story of a perceptive young girl, Lucy McGowan, from a quirky Chicago family. They all return to Wisconsin to care for her dying grandfather. Lucy believes her time in the rural town where the McGowan story began will provide a key piece to the puzzle of their broken past and perhaps reveal the truth about her missing father.

Adults who love reading literature written for teens can join this discussion group at the Sugar Creek Branch. The September selection is Tamora Pierce's "Wild Magic."

In the story, thirteen-year-old Dalne has the extraordinary gift of speaking to animals and willing them to obey. When she becomes an apprentice to the queen's horse mistress, the discipline of becoming a mage sharpens her powers for sensing the presence of immortal beings. Metallic birds and carnivorous spiders with human heads have escaped from the "Divine Realms" and are raiding the countryside.

Participants are encouraged to read the book in advance. To get a copy, enquire at the library’s information desk.

“The English Girl,” by Daniel Silva, is the featured selection for the next discussion in New Palestine. Participants are encouraged to read the novel in advance. To get a copy of the book, enquire at the library’s information desk.

In Silva's story of suspense, when Madeline Hart, a rising star in Britain's governing party is kidnapped, the prime minister decides to rescue his mistress privately rather than involving the police.

Enter Gabriel Allon--master assassin, art restorer and spy--who is no stranger to dangerous assignments or political intrigue. With the clock ticking, Gabriel embarks on a desperate attempt to bring Madeline home safely. His mission takes him from the criminal underworld of Marseilles to an isolated valley in the mountains of Provence to the stately if faded corridors of power in London; and, finally, to a pulse-pounding climax in Moscow.
