    THE GIVER OF STARS
    by Jojo Moyes This story is rooted in depression-era Kentucky history when brave, unconventional, and dedicated women known as the Pack Horse Librarians mounted horses and, often in treacherous conditions, took books to people isolated in the hills who had no other access to book knowledge. The program was known as Eleanor Roosevelt’s traveling library initiative.

    THE BODY
    by Bill Bryson After reading this book, you will be amazed at YOU! Bryson skillfully, and with his signature humor, invites you to realize the magnificence of your body. We tend to take it for granted and simply expect it to perform flawlessly for us. But after absorbing the information in this book, the reader can’t help but be in awe and appreciation of its design.

    BECOMING MRS. LEWIS
    by Patti Callahan If you are a devotee of the writings of C. S. Lewis, you will be enchanted with this story of poet and writer Joy Davidman and her unintended and surprising relationship with Lewis. Much to their astonishment (especially his!), their meeting turned into a blissful love story which ultimately led Joy to “becoming Mrs. Lewis.”

    EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER
    by Linda Holmes When young, recently widowed Evvie Drake rents a room in her home to help with expenses, an unlikely series of events starts. The person who comes to rent the space is a depressed Major League baseball player who is in a slump and concerned his sport career is over. It is fun to watch a remarkable transformation that takes place in both of them. The story is a funny, upbeat look at how two “broken” people can help each other find meaning, hope, and happiness again.

DAVID SLAVIN & ADAM J.B. LANE INTRODUCE ODD GODS: THE ODDYSSEY

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25; 7 PM

Author DAVID SLAVIN and illustrator ADAM J. B. LANE will introduce their children’s book, ODD GODS: THE ODDYSSEY, Book Two in their critically acclaimed and hilarious illustrated series about the middle school gods you never hear about in myths. We share in the adventures of twins Adonis and Oddonis and it is obvious that Oddonis can’t do anything right, while Adonis is the epitome of what a god should be.

This time Oddonis is in trouble because he accidentally turned their father, the all-powerful king of the gods, Zeus, into a giant baby. Now Oddonis is charged with righting that curse. So he assembles a team of his odd friends—Mathena, Gaseous, and Puneous—and journeys to the underworld on this important mission.

This amusing series resembles Diary of a Wimpy Kid meeting Percy Jackson and it features dozens of black-and-white illustrations by award-winning artist Adam J. B. Lane. HARPER COLLINS
