December snowstormWinter is the time for a good book!

Sick of the snow?  Come to Loganberry Books and curl up with a good book...  There's free tea in the Annex Gallery for you, and lots to look at.  Do the children in your life have their own copy of Virginia Lee Burton's Katy and Big Snow?  Have you read the new book Shackleton's Forgotten Expedition: The Voyage of the Nimrod by Beau Riffenburgh?  Or would rather explore our books on Australia or a good mystery by Agatha Christie?  It's all here waiting for you.

L.A.'s racial complexity comes clear in this yarn about Jackie Ishida, a Japanese-American law school student whose efforts to fulfill a request in her late grandfather's will lead her to the unsolved, 1965 murders of four black teenagers. As Jackie pieces together the facts of those long-ago deaths, she also risks exposing her family's carefully guarded secrets.

Do you have a book club that needs a place to meet or would you like to start a new group?  Talk to Harriett about getting on the calendar.

G223: girl who helps lion and swallows a bee
I read this book in New Zealand in 1962 or 1963, so it's probably British. I don't know whether it was published in the 20th century or earlier (I was only five when I read it).  A little girl meets up with a lion who has injured itself with, I think, a can opener.  She helps it out.  In another incident, she swallows a bee and is so startled she falls into a pond, where she finds an upside-down world.  I can't remember whether this is a single story or a chapter book.
