Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Fans of Barbara Kingsolver will love this stunning debut novel from a New York Times bestselling nature writer, about an unforgettable young woman determined to make her way in the wilds of North Carolina, and the two men that will break her isolation open. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She’s barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world — until the unthinkable happens. In Where the Crawdads Sing, Owens juxtaposes an exquisite ode to the natural world against a heartbreaking coming of age story and a surprising murder investigation. Thought-provoking, wise, and deeply moving, Owens’s debut novel reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks

Charlotte was supposed to be looking after the children, and she swears she was.

But while her three kids are all safe and sound at the school fair, Alice, her best friend Harriet’s daughter, is nowhere to be found. Frantically searching everywhere, Charlotte knows she must find the courage to tell Harriet that her beloved only child is missing—and admit that she’s solely to blame.

Harriet, devastated by this unbearable loss, can no longer bring herself to speak to Charlotte again, much less trust her. Now, more isolated than ever and struggling to keep her marriage afloat, Harriet believes nothing and no one.

But as the police bear down on both women, trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to this little girl, dark secrets begin to surface—and Harriet discovers that trusting Charlotte again may be the only thing that will reunite her with her daughter.

Close

February 28, 2019

The basis for the major motion picture of the same name. An entrancing memoir of how one woman's journey of self-discovery gave her the courage to persevere in re-creating her life.

Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn't realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an "unfinished woman" was full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.

Katie Price has a rare skin disease that makes any amount of exposure to sunlight harmful. The disease will likely kill her over time. As a 17-year-old, she wants to be more than her illness. She wants to know love and adventure. She dreams of a day when she can stand in the sun with the arms of a lover wrapped around her. Katie's life is filled with days that she sleeps through and nights where she explores her town and plays music as a busker. Or, rather, this was her life until one fateful evening when someone she had only seen from afar through protected windows over the years, another teenager named Charlie, approaches her and changes everything for the better.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Beetles to the West, Beetles to the East presented by Rory McIntosh
The Native Invasive Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) outbreak in Western Canada seriously threatens pine forests in Alberta and Saskatchewan and indeed across Canada. The outbreak that killed almost 50% of BC's pine growing stock breached the Rockies in two long distance dispersal events in 2006 and 2009, and is spreading across Alberta.
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an exotic wood boring insect from eastern Asia, has killed ash trees throughout the eastern half of North America. EAB was found in Winnipeg in December 2017 and threatens urban and park ash forests in Saskatchewan and western North America.

Rory McIntosh has been involved in forest entomology since 1978 and has worked in entomology research across Canada. He studied at the University of New Brunswick and completed post-doctoral research at Simon Fraser University. Currently, Rory is the Provincial Forest Entomologist and Pathologist in Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. Based in Prince Albert, he leads the provincial insect and disease program, and is currently an adjunct professor in the School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at the University of Saskatchewan.

Green Book is the real life account of Jamaican born pianist Don Shirley's musical tour through the Deep South during the Jim Crow era. Shirley (Mahershala Ali) enlists the services of rough and tough New York City bouncer Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) as his personal chauffeur and bodyguard as he performs jazz piano sets through a section of America where he is most unwelcome. While the duo's personalities and lifestyles clash at first, their bond on the road strengthens as they each navigate the culture shock and harsh racism of the 1960s American South in their own ways.

In 1983, an American professor invited a graduate student, Oliver, to live in his northern Italian villa with his family while working on a book. It is a tradition that his 17-year-old son, Elio, who is an introverted genius with a mind that makes him adult-like in many ways, had grown passionately jealous of over the years. Yet that was the year that Elio discovered with the help of Oliver many truths about himself. The two young men are inexplicably drawn to one another and spend the summer enjoying local delights, the countryside, their Jewish heritage and unexpected romantic feelings.
