Wednesday, March 3, 2010 • Posted March 3, 2010

Local artists Carol and Eldon Kothmann have loaned some of their creations for display at the Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library. As you come into the library foyer be sure and take time to see their beautiful pottery and photographs. And if they inspire you to try your own hand at some artistic endeavors the library has a large collection of books on various art medium techniques.


Model Home by Eric Puchner (F PUC). Domestic Fiction. "When tragedy strikes, the Zillers are forced to move into one of the houses in Warren’s abandoned development in the middle of the desert. Marooned in a less-than-model home, each must reckon with what’s led them there and who’s to blame-and whether they can summon the forgiveness needed to hold the family together."

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake (F BLA). Historical Fiction. "In London covering the Blitz with Edward R. Murrow, Frankie Bard meets a Cape Cod doctor in a shelter and promises that she’ll deliver a letter for him when she finally returns to the United States. Filled with stunning parallels to today’s world, [it] is a sweeping novel about the loss of innocence of two extraordinary women—and of two countries torn apart by war."

The Things That Keep Us Here by Carla Buckley (F BUC). Suspense Fiction. "When a deadly pandemic strikes, Ann Brooks’s town is locked down and, as time passes, she is forced to confront her failing marriage and fight for survival as resources dwindle and neighbor turns against neighbor."

Brava, Valentine by Adriana Trigiana (F TRI Val.2). Domestic Fiction. "A once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity takes shoe designer and businesswomen Valentine Roncalli from the winding streets of Greenwich Village to the sun-kissed cobblestones of Buenos Aires, where she finds a long-buried secret hidden deep within a family scandal"

The Midnight House by Alex Berenson (F BER Wel.4). Suspense Fiction. "When members of a highly controversial squad of CIA and Army interrogators are being murdered one by one, special CIA operative John Wells is asked to investigate."

The Wife’s Tale by Lori Lansens (F LAN). Psychological Fiction. "On the eve of their Silver Anniversary, Mary Gooch is waiting for her husband Jimmy to come home. As night turns to day, it becomes frighteningly clear to Mary that he is gone. Through the years, disappointment and worry have brought Mary’s life to a standstill, and she has let her universe shrink to the well-worn path from the bedroom to the refrigerator. But her husband’s disappearance startles her out of her inertia, and she begins a desperate search."


Story Time is held at 10:00 Fridays at the Library Stribling Room.
