An American Feast

If you're hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year, and need ideas, stop by the library!  Not hosting?  We can help you be a most appreciated guest!

We've got books on cooking poultry, vegetables, breads, finding the perfect wine, and how to bake yummy pies.  And for that lovely table, books on crafts and even napkin folding.  

To keep the kids busy, we have a selection of Thanksgiving themed books too!  

Note: To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, WMCC and the Fortier Library will be closed November 24th and 25th.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Acclaimed Scottish author and poet Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1886, which became an immediate hit on both sides of the Atlantic.  Since then, its popularity hasn't wavered, with cultural references, plays, films, tv shows, and many audio adaptations too.

For some scary Halloween season reading, check out a copy of the book or audio, and come to the discussion on Thursday, November 17, at noon, in Room 122.  Bring your lunch!
