Two authors will be visiting State College this month. First, Marilynne Robinson, author of Housekeeping, the 2009 Community Read book at Penn State, will be at the State Theatre on April 17th at 7:00 PM. If you read her book, I know you will be interested in hearing her take on what it all meant. This event is sponsored by the Penn State Center for American Literary Studies - http://www.cals.psu.edu . There is still one more public book group discussion before the author visit at 102 Kern Building on April 9, from 7-8 PM on the Penn State campus.
The second visit will be with Alexandra Fuller. author of Don't Let's go to the Dogs Tonight - an African Childhood. She will be discussing the impact of the oil and gas boom on Wyoming. This will take place at 26 Hosler Building at 4 PM on Monday, April 20th.
Both of these visits are free and open to the public.
Schlow Library is now publishing a list of new additions to the collection on the website. Go to schlowlibrary.org/adults to connect to the new list.
I am finally reading the first book on Sookie Stackhouse. She is the human who connects with a vampire in the Charlaine Harris series. I have liked all of Ms. Harris' characters and Sookie is no exception. She is tough, self-reliant and yet flawed. Even if you are not a member of the vampire genre fan club, you might still enjoy Sookie. The first book in that series is Dead Until Dark.
