Hancock Library News

New at the Library-Pat Conroy, who wrote "Prince of Tides" a number of years ago, has come out with a new book called "South of Broad", it is the story of a diverse group of teenagers from Charleston, SC who form a friendship in the late 1960's and follows them into the 90s. There seems to be a resurgence of interest in things about the sixties lately. Last week I watched many news items about the anniversary of Woodstock. Although I remember Woodstock happening--and I was at that target average age of Woodstock attendees --I guess I must have been too concerned with my soon to be growing family and didn't pay much attention to it at the time--but I do enjoy watching all the news clips going back to those days.

Another new book "Julie and Julia". This, of course, is also a new movie. I read the book "My life in France" by Julia Child a few years ago and that is probably what spiked my interest in this book. It is a memoir about Julie Powell who set out to make every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary "Mastering the art of French Cooking"(which we also have here at the library, just in case you want to try it). It is probably basically a humorous book for foodie-wannabees.

Our Last new book for the week is one by Luanne Rice called "The Deep Blue Sea For Beginnings". I don't know too much about this book but do know that there are a lot of my patron's out there who like Luanne Rice--and besides it was about the sea--that's always a draw for me.

See ya at the Library!!
