Staff Review Oct 17, 2018

From our librarian Stefanie: Recently I was trying to describe the joy that I felt while reading the sinfully fun novel Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan to a coworker. It was the most deliciously romanic family gossip trilogy and, with two young children in the house and my daytime work duties, I gobbled them up in a mere 3 weeks! I like to call juicy love stories with a side of wit and elegance like this Clever Candy Lit.

I am, in general, a huge fan of Kate Atkinson’s novels. I loved Life After Life, its sequel A God in Ruins, and all of the books in her Jackson Brodie series. That’s why it pains me to say I was a bit disappointed in Transcription.

For many fans and critics, Sara Morgan brings back what many consider to be "true" country music. Morgan is a country music storyteller in the spirit of Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire​ and Loretta Lynn. Her voice not only echoes these forebears but also builds on them with a style that is distinctly her own.

Kelly Hunt

Kelly Hunt makes the kind of music that will strike you as instantly familiar yet strangely new and vital. Her voice and banjo are perfectly suited for her stunning brand of Americana/roots music. She recorded her first album, Even the Sparrow, over the course of two years, a period of time she describes requiring "a great deal of patience and perseverance and growth" and that she is "proud of the grit it has taken to make this album a reality." We are honored to share an interview with Kelly Hunt, along with her book, music and movie recommendations.
