Here's the scoop on the books reviewed in our local newspapers this Sunday--and a special program coming soon to Ramsey County Library!
The Pioneer Press had an excellent article called With All These Authors in the Twin Cities, Who Has Time to Read? about the incredible amount of fabulous authors who'll be touring through the Twin Cities.
Of special note, Ramsey County Library is thrilled to be welcoming Emily Rapp, who is appearing at the Roseville Library on Tuesday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m. as part of the popular Club Book author series. Mark your calendars! This is sure to be a fascinating program, as Rapp discusses her work and her newest book, The Still Point of the Turning World, which explores a mother's journey through grief and the wisdom to be gained from parenting a terminally ill child.
Also included, an article in the fall arts preview about the new season in books: Major Sequels from Big Authors to Release This Fall.
