in the library

Dr. Marina Singh, a research scientist with a Minnesota pharmaceutical company, is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on what is destined to be an extremely valuable new drug.  No one knows where Dr. Swenson is and Anders Eckman, the last person who was sent to find her, died before he could complete his mission.  Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle, hoping to find her mentor and the answers to many troubling questions.

Books are available at the circulation desk.  All are welcome!

TITLE: The Lock Artist

AUTHOR: Steve Hamilton

RATING: 4 of 5 stars

This is a mystery.   What happened (horrific event) to a young boy so that he never spoke again, but became a "lock artist" and a criminal!  Don't want to ever finish it and yet can't wait to find out.  4 stars = language.  --Sandy

16th Annual Chippewa Valley Book Festival

October 15-22, 2015
 

FCPL will host Mary Relindes Ellis, author of The Turtle Warrior, who will speak at FCPL about her newest book, The Bohemian Flats, on Tuesday, October 20

In The Bohemian Flats, Mary Relindes Ellis's rich, imaginative gift carries us from the bourgeois world of fin de siècle Germany to a vibrant immigrant enclave in the heart of the Midwest and to the killing fields of World War I. Shell shock, as it was called, lands Raimund Kaufmann in a London hospital, a victim of the war but also of his own, and his brother's, efforts to get out of Germany and build a new life in America. While his recovery eludes him, his memory returns us to Minneapolis, to the Flats, a milling community on the Mississippi River, where Raimund and his brother Albert have sought respite from the oppressive hand of their older brother, now the master of the family farm and brewery. In Minnesota the brothers confront different forms of prejudice, but they also find a chance to remake their lives according to their own principles and wishes--until the war makes their German roots inescapable.
