To celebrate Stone Soup Shakespeare’s upcoming performance in Shorewood, this week’s #FridayReads will take a look at the Bard throughout our historical fiction collection. With little known facts about William Shakespeare’s life, why not make it up?
Even though there’s not any snow yet, winter officially starts next week. Why not warm up with book? This week’s Friday Reads feature stories surrounding winter and snow including a heart-warming fairy tale, a spine-chilling mystery, a touching story of dogsled racing, and, of course, a winter romance. Read your winter blues away with a good book!
We already know that books can transport us to other worlds. Through stories we can live characters’ lives, experience time and places outside our own, and safely solve problems from the comfort of our homes. Listening to audiobooks can add another dimension to the story as performers give human voice to characters and add momentum to the plot. Now add time travel, and we’re really taking things to unheard dimensions with this week’s Friday Reads!
St. Patrick’s Day may be a ways away, but with Irish Fest in town, we thought we’d celebrate a little early with some Irish-themed fiction. Like leaves of a four-leaf clover, here are four new titles featuring Ireland and/or Irish characters. With drama, historical fiction, mystery and suspense, there’s something for everyone, Irish or not.
