When I opened the packages of books that came in this week, I was thrilled to see a few titles that I had been waiting for. I thought that I’d share them with you today. The first two are adult non fiction and were recommended subjects from some patrons.
The Beginner’s Guide to Writing Knitting Patterns by Kate Atherley teaches the reader how to write patterns that others can knit. “It addresses the details of how to create complete, clear and easy to use knitting patterns, for any type of design and for any level of knitter.” All you knitters out there, I’m excited to find out how your creative designs develop and I hope that this books helps you share them!
The Farmers Market Cookbook by Julia Shanks shows “detailed produce descriptions, storage tips and preparation techniques and features over 200 simple and delicious recipes ranging from traditional favorites to innovative creations.” YUM! As we get closer to Farmers Market season and are planting those gardens, I’m sure that this beautifully illustrated book will come in handy.
My third suggestion is a work of fiction that I am very excited to have in our collection. The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee by Talya Tate Boerner is the story of ten year old Gracie Lee, “who knows a few things. She knows which trees are best for climbing. She knows how to walk through the hallway without making a sound on the hard wood floor. She knows if Daddy’s crop gets one more drop of rain, the whole family will pay the price. There are plenty of things Gracie doesn’t know. These things keep her up at night.” The author started out her journey as a published author writing her facebook blog, “Grace, Grits and Gardening” and several of our patrons of fans of her work.
