Book: Terrier (Tortall: Beka Cooper series, Book 1) by Tamora Pierce*

 

*We’re breaking this book into two during the summer so we can have a chunky read, so don’t let the page count scare you off! Read the first part for June (pages 1-303), or just join us in July to discuss the entire thing.

 

Beka begins her training assigned to the Provost’s Guard in the Lower City.  Though initially unsure of their new charge, Beka proves to be a valuable resource, although she is shy and has a hard time speaking in front of other people. Through her unusual magical abilities, Beka is able to hear the voices of ghosts who fly with pigeons until they are ready to enter the Peaceful Realms. From these talents she learns of two grave threats to Lower City.

 

If you haven’t read the book, join us anyway as we’re always looking for new suggestions!

Other Happenings June 2016 @ Lowder

 

The Ladies of High Tea will be meeting Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 3PM and reading the book I Still Dream about You by Alabama’s own Fannie Flagg.

I Still Dream About You is a comic mystery romp through the streets of Birmingham, Alabama, past, present, and future. Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect—she’s lovely, charming, and a successful agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child. But just when things seem completely hopeless, and the secrets of Maggie’s past drive her to a radical plan to solve it all, Maggie discovers, quite by accident, that everybody, it seems, has at least one little secret. I Still Dream About You is a wonderful novel that is equal parts southern charm, murder mystery, and that perfect combination of comedy and old-fashioned wisdom that can be served up only by America’s own remarkable Fannie Flagg.

The book we will be reading for July is: Friends, Lovers, and Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith.  This is the second in the Isabel Dalhousie series set in Edinburgh, Scotland.

When Isabel is asked to cover for vacationing Cat at her delicatessen, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant and is suddenly haunted by memories of events that never happened to him. The situation piques her insatiable curiosity: Could the memories be connected with the donor’s demise? Naturally, Isabel’s friend Jamie thinks it is none of Isabel’s business. Meanwhile, Grace, Isabel’s housekeeper, has become infatuated with a man at her spiritualist meeting, and Cat brings home an Italian lothario. That makes for some particularly tricky problems–both practical and philosophical–for Isabel to unravel in this enormously engaging and highly unusual mystery.

This week, we’ll read about a chicken and a pig hanging ten…or rather claws and hooves in Surfer Chick by Kristy Dempsey and Henry Cole and Pig Kahuna by Jennifer Sattler.

 

June 13 – If you fall off your surfboard, you’re going to end up swimming, so, this week, we turn our attention to characters learning how to swim. Cats are not known for their love of water and Splat is no exception. We’ll see if he ever learns how to swim in Splish, Splash, Splat by Rob Scotton. Now, frogs, on the other hand, are usually around water, but Froggy doesn’t know how to swim. Can his mom teach him? The title just might give it away when we read Froggy Learns to Swim by Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz.

 

June 20 – It’s important to be prepared before you take part in any activity, so it’s nice that Willie’s family wants to help her get ready for her first rafting trip. Unfortunately, they may be providing a bit too much help. We’ll see if Willie ever gets to enjoy her Big Day on the River, a book by Sarah Wilson and Randy Cecil.

 

June 27 – We’ll wrap up a month of aquatic adventures with two stories about sailing. First, we’ll enjoy a virtual sailing excursion courtesy of Sail Away by Donald Crews, then we’ll see what happens when Poppleton Pig reluctantly spends a day on a sailboat, which is a chapter in Poppleton Everyday by Cythia Rylant and Mark Teague.

Angry Dragons – for children in third grade and up –On Wednesday, June 8 at 4 p.m., the Dragons will discuss The League of Beastly Dreadfuls by Holly Grant.

Publisher’s Summary – Anastasia is a completely average almost-eleven-year-old. That is, UNTIL her parents die in a tragic vacuum-cleaner accident. UNTIL she’s rescued by two long-lost great-aunties. And UNTIL she’s taken to their delightful and, er, “authentic” Victorian home, St. Agony’s Asylum for the Criminally Insane. But something strange is going on at the asylum. Anastasia soon begins to suspect that her aunties are not who they say they are. So when she meets Ollie and Quentin, two mysterious brothers, the three join together to plot their great escape!

 

Bookies – The Pike Road Bookies meet on the third Thursday of each month, except December. On Thursday, June 23 at 11:15 a.m., they will discuss The Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig.

Publisher’s Summary – Donal Cameron is being raised by his grandmother, the cook at the legendary Double W ranch in Ivan Doig’s beloved Two Medicine Country of the Montana Rockies, a landscape that gives full rein to an eleven-year-old’s imagination. But when Gram has to have surgery for “female trouble” in the summer of 1951, all she can think to do is to ship Donal off to her sister in faraway Manitowoc, Wisconsin. There Donal is in for a rude surprise: Aunt Kate-bossy, opinionated, argumentative, and tyrannical–is nothing like her sister. She henpecks her good-natured husband, Herman the German, and Donal can’t seem to get on her good side either. After one contretemps too many, Kate packs him back to the authorities in Montana on the next Greyhound. But as it turns out, Donal isn’t traveling solo: Herman the German has decided to fly the coop with him. In the immortal American tradition, the pair light out for the territory together, meeting a classic Doigian ensemble of characters and having rollicking misadventures along the way. Charming, wise, and slyly funny, Last Bus to Wisdom is a last sweet gift from a writer whose books have bestowed untold pleasure on countless readers.

Amongst the many bequests he made to her, perhaps the most valuable is his little black book, in which he listed all the people who ever worked for him, with details of their particular skill sets. This means that whenever Mrs P has a crime to solve she can readily contact someone with the relevant expertise to help in her enquiries. Attending the funeral of the rich and respected Sir Normington Winthrop, because his is one of the names in the little black book, Mrs Pargeter sets out to discover the connection between Sir Normington and her late husband. Her investigations will draw her into a shady world of gun-runners, shifty politicians – and a kidnapped vicar.

“Betrayal is probably one of the hardest things to handle, whether it’s from friends or family. To me, my friends were my family, because my family had been betraying me since day one. Don’t judge me, I’m just like you. I was a fool for putting my trust in the wrong people, because I thought they would have my back like I would have theirs.” Come on this amazing and shocking journey with Tammy and her backstabbing friends as she tries to find her happily ever after. With all of the turmoil she wonders if it is too late to save the lives of her loved ones. With every page, you’ll wonder if she’ll be able to survive those with an evil vendetta. Will they succeed at taking her out? Or will she come out on top? Stay tuned for all of the head spinning drama coming your way.
