HOLIDAY HOURS! The Library will be closed December 24-25 and January 1. We will close at 5 pm on December 31.
In a small Florida town, a young lawyer is shot to death. A young black man, a former client, named Quincy Miller is charged and convicted. For 22 years, Miller maintains his innocence from inside prison. Finally, Guardian Ministries takes on Miller's case, but the Episcopal minister in charge gets more than he bargained for as powerful people do not want Miller exonerated.
Parents and children alike will delight in this cheery book about Thanksgiving Day. From baking an apple pie to playing football on a crisp autumn morning to gathering around the table with friends and family, this adorable picture book depicts some of America's most treasured family traditions. The lively, rhyming text and bright illustrations will not only delight and entertain your kids, but will also instruct. Hallinan gently encourages children to help with the preparation of the holiday meal, to spend time with family, and also to be grateful for the many blessings that they have been given. Parents can depend on P.K. Hallinan to provide not only fun stories, but also teaching tools for their children. Today is Thanksgiving! is no different, as it provides a great way to inspire children to share in the spirit of thanks that surrounds this holiday.
The 64 members of Fire Lake, Idaho's sophomore class have managed to survive the first two phases of the Program-- and each other. They alone have emerged into the dawn of a new era on Earth, into a Fire Lake valley that's full of otherworldly dangers and challenges. Staying alive in this broken world should force Min, Noah, Tack, and the others to form new alliances-- but old feuds die hard, and the brutality of the earlier Program phases cannot be forgotten. When they discover that they may not be alone on the planet after all, they'll have to decide if they're going to work together... or die together.
