Both students and parents are welcome as we explore the college admissions process from beginning to end.

Carole Shmurak returns this fall to facilitate a new mystery series:

And the Award Goes To…
          Of the books that have won the major awards for mysteries, only one — Bootlegger’s Daughter (1992) by Margaret Maron — has won four:  the Edgar, the Agatha, the Anthony and the Macavity.  But several excellent mysteries have been multiple award winners, and this Fall we’ll read some of those.

September 12:  Bootlegger’s Daughter (1992) – Margaret Maron   
October 10:  The Lincoln Lawyer (2005) – Michael Connelly
November 14:  What the Dead Know (2007) – Laura Lippman

 

November 14:  What the Dead Know (2007) – Laura Lippman    

Two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall thirty years ago., and their bodies were never found.  When a clearly disoriented woman involved in a hit-and-run case claims to be one of the long-gone girls, her refusal to give investigators any information about the other sister deepens the mystery. In a story that moves back and forth across the decades, only Kevin Infante, a Baltimore police detective, dares to be skeptical of her tale.

Join us on for our monthly cookbook club, Cooking the Books. This month we're mixing things up a bit with a holiday cookie exchange! Select, from a Southington library cookbook, a cookie recipe you would like to try, bake it, and then bring the cookies to the library to share with others.  If you prefer to prepare one of your own family favorites instead, that is perfectly fine, as well. No homemade cookie will be turned away!

Please bring your cookies on one tray or platter with a copy of your cookie recipe. It is not necessary to package your cookies into portions ahead of time. A container will be provided to hold your new cookie collection. We will attempt to divide the cookies as evenly as possible, but the math may not be in our favor.

    Contact: Lynn Gardner   860-628-0947 x5   gardnerl@southington.org
   

'Tis the cookie season! Join us for our second annual holiday cookie exchange on Thursday, December 13. Select, from a Southington library cookbook, a cookie recipe you would like to try, bake it, and then bring the cookies to the library to share with others.  If you prefer to prepare one of your own family favorites instead, that is perfectly fine, as well. No homemade cookie will be turned away!

Please bring your cookies on one tray or platter with a copy of your cookie recipe. It is not necessary to package your cookies into portions ahead of time. A container will be provided to hold your new cookie collection. We will attempt to divide the cookies as evenly as possible, but the math may not be in our favor.
