“Beyond the Book” Book Club* Tuesday, June 22 at 7 pm

Join the Summer Reading Program fun at the Marion County Public Library (Fairmont) with this take on the “tails” portion of the Tails and Tales theme. This New York Times Best Seller had over 10 million copies in print world-wide. Set during the Great Depression, this story of friendship, adventure, and love is one you won’t forget. Jacob Janowski's luck had run out―orphaned and penniless, he had no direction until he landed on a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was the Great Depression and for Jacob the circus was both his salvation and a living hell. There he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but brutal animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this group of misfits was one of love and trust, and ultimately, it was their only hope for survival. This novel is readily available for eBook and eAudiobook borrowing on Hoopla and Libby. There are also several copies of the text in our physical collection. The Beyond the Book Presents event linked to this novel is Don’t Let the Tail Wag the Family, featuring Joe Gribben on June 29.

Speaking of Books* Join us Tuesday, June 1 at 4 pm at the Fairview Public Library as we discuss The Coalwood Way (the sequel to October Sky) by WV author Homer Hickam! Sign up at mcpls.org/ events

“It is fall 1959. Homer “Sonny” Hickam and his fellow Rocket Boys are in their senior year at Big Creek High, and the town of Coalwood finds itself at a painful crossroads. The strains can be felt within the Hickam home, where Homer Sr. struggles to save the mine, and his wife, Elsie, is feeling increasingly isolated from both her family and the townspeople. Sonny, despite a blossoming relationship with a local girl, finds his own mood darkened by an unexplainable sadness. Then, with the holidays approaching, trouble at the mine and the arrival of a beautiful young outsider bring unexpected changes in both the Hickam family and the town of Coalwood ... as this luminous memoir moves toward its poignant conclusion. .” -Amazon

Cover2Cover Book Club* Pick up a copy of A Lucky Life Interrupted by Tom Brokaw and register to join us June 17 at 1:30 to discuss the book. Participants must register and agree to the library’s Covid-19 guidelines. Participants must register and agree to the library’s COVID-19 guidelines. Sign up at mcpls.org/events “Tom Brokaw has led a fortunate life, with a strong marriage and family, many friends, and a brilliant journalism career culminating in his twenty-two years as anchor of the NBC Nightly News and as bestselling author. But in the summer of 2013, when back pain led him to the doctors at the Mayo Clinic, his run of good luck was interrupted. He received shocking news: He had multiple myeloma, a treatable but incurable blood cancer. Friends had always referred to Brokaw’s “lucky star,” but as he writes in this inspiring memoir, “Turns out that star has a dimmer switch.” Brokaw takes us through all the seasons and stages of this surprising year, the emotions, discoveries, setbacks, and struggles—times of denial, acceptance, turning points, and courage. After his diagnosis, Brokaw began to keep a journal, approaching this new stage of his life in a familiar role: as a journalist, determined to learn as much as he could about his condition, to report the story, and help others facing similar battles. That journal became the basis of this memoir.” -Amazon
