A huge thank you to everyone who was responsible for putting on Old Yeller Day last weekend, but I want to give a special thank you to the Old Yeller Committee of the Friends of the Library: Rosemary Davis, chairman, Jean Dudney, Sherri Clarkson, Mary Carlman, D’Ann Stahl, Wendy Hastings, and Trudy Irwin. Such an event and the Starving Artist Show keep us connected to our hometown culture and history and takes incredible planning and hard work. Amazingly, the committee is already laying the groundwork for an even bigger Old Yeller Day next year. Mason is a great place to call home!

Shake Off by Mishca Hiller (F HIL)

“Michel Khoury’s life was upended because of the Middle East conflict; his one mission as a skilled intelligence operative is its peaceful resolution.

His secrets turn deadly, and they find themselves on the run from the very people they thought they could trust.”
