Latest from The Library

“Making It Up As I Go Along” is a collection of whimsical but thoughtful musings from Marion Keyes. She reflects on the many events in her life, both major and slightly trivial –alcoholism, nail polish, fake tans, domestic violence and more.

“The Day I Lost You” is a novel what happens when a woman is killed in an avalanche leaving her mother to care for her 5 year old daughter. Fionnuala Kearney has written a moving story of a mother who then discovers her daughter had a secret life.

”The High Mountains Of Portugal” is 3 interconnected stories by Yann Martel of “Life Of Pi” fame. His imaginative storytelling comes to the fore again with this novel set over 3 different decades with 3 different characters but a linked theme.

“Alive, Alive Oh” is a delightful book from author and editor Diana Athill. Now in her late 90’s she has written a series of recollections remembering and celebrating her life.

Good Reading.
