    EL PASO
    by Winston Groom

    This is a book to settle in with on long winter nights. El Paso will transport you to the times of the 1916 Mexican Revolution and the vicious border wars set in the harsh deserts and mountains of northern Mexico.. A railroad tycoon, known at the Colonel, is pulled into the conflict when two and a half million dollars in "beef on the hoof" are raided from his ranch. Believing that Pancho Villa stole the cattle, he hopes to gather a group of men brave enough to hunt down Villa and bring him to justice. If you like your stories with an historical background and filled with heroes, villains, shootouts, rescues, and even a bullfight, this is the epic for you. Winston Groom has also written Forrest Gump.

    SMALL GREAT THINGS
    by Jodi Picoult

    You know you're in for a compelling, "straight from the headlines" type of theme when you pick up one of Jodi's books. This one will be right at the top of the list. Her story takes on the challenging subjects of prejudice, race, justice, compassion, and privilege. We meet Ruth, a competent African-American labor & delivery nurse, who is caring for a newborn baby when she is told by her superiors that the baby's parents, who are white supremacists, demand that she not touch their baby. When the baby goes into cardiac arrest, and Ruth is the only one in the nursery, she is faced with the dilemma of following orders or intervening. It's a page turner from then on!

DAN YACCARINO DEBUTS NEW PICTURE BOOK

MONDAY, MAY 15; 6:30 PM

DAN YACCARINO will introduce his new children’s book, Morris Mole, which he wrote and illustrated. Morris Mole has always been a little different. That difference is a big help when the moles are running low on food. It’s up to clever Morris to save the day. With a little help from an unexpected friend and a lot of digging, Morris learns that even the smallest creatures can do big things.

School Library Journal gave the book a starred review, saying “This engaging read-aloud…encourages children to be open to accepting and exploring different points of view. It also demonstrates how teamwork can benefit everyone…a must-have for all shelves.”

His other works include Five Little Pumpkins, Trash Town, Unlovable, and The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau. Visit him at www.yaccarinostudio.com. HARPER COLLINS
