Have you heard about the book "Mud Season" by Ellen Stimson? It's a quick read. I certainly can identify with a mud season since I imagine we may have that in Wisconsin this year after the winter we have had. I loved the descriptions of Vermont and of life there. This is the book featured for next week's "Cooks and Books" program. That's why I happened to be reading it. The book was written in a very conversational style. Add this to your "to read' list.
We lift our imagination like a torch toward the shadows, and the stories and lessons of our past illuminate across the surface. Animated within this flickering glow, we see the emergence of new ideas and new solutions, as imagination pushes the limits of knowledge, compounding it and transforming it into wisdom, insight and expression. Please join us for an enlightening discussion about knowledge and imagination, as we relate these concepts to the novel The Land of the Painted Caves, to the Pushing the Limits: Knowledge program videos, and to our lives. This program will be held in the Eagle Municipal Building on Thursday, April 3 from 6pm - 7pm. The presenter will be Daniel Pawlak. Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
I never read a book by Clive Cussler until I read Arctic Drift. If you enjoy mystery books, then I think you'll like Arctic Drift by Clive Cussler. It was a page turner. When the book ended, I thought I might like to read another book by this author. Since we have been in arctic air, this is a great book to read indoors perhaps under a blanket or next to a fire. Pick up a copy at the library soon!
