Our young adult series books have been shifted to row 2 (with signs posted) thus allowing us additional space for our young adult fiction collection. If you are having difficulties locating a young adult series or young adult fiction title, stop by the circulation desk for assistance. On August 21, the movie (based on books) The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, will be released. The Franklin Township Library has several of the Mortal Instruments books including City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, and City of Lost Souls. All of these titles can be found on the young adult series shelves.

Book Review—The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian When one thinks of genocide, one immediately thinks of the horrific events of the Holocaust; however, another systematic extermination of a group of people predated it - the Armenian Genocide, or as Chris Bohjalian refers to it in his novel, The Sandcastle Girls - the “Slaughter You Know Next to Nothing About.” In the novel, Bohjalian juxtaposes the main character’s modern day life with the story of her grandparents’ romance that began in Syria in 1915. Armen, an Armenian engineer is searching for his wife and infant daughter who he believes have both perished on the “long walk” into the desert. Elizabeth, an American from Boston, has arrived in Syria to tend to the endless parade of refugees marched into Aleppo on the way to one of the Der-el-Zors, concentration camps located in the middle of the Syrian desert where thousands of Armenians are sent to die. Despite the daily horrors that Armen and Elizabeth witness, the two begin an unlikely friendship that blossoms into a deep and abiding romance. Travel along with their granddaughter as she uncovers pieces of their story and slowly begins to understand the immeasurable sadness that has left a permanent imprint upon their lives. The centennial of the Armenian Genocide is nearing, April 24, 2015. To learn more about this unspeakable tragedy, visit the Armenian National Institute at http://www.armenian-genocide.org
