AnatomyBigLibraryRead300x250

October 13 - 28, 2014

LTPL will be taking part in the Big Library Read program!

Library card holders will be able to borrow and enjoy the book "Anatomy of a Misfit" by Andrea Portes starting October 13 and concluding the morning of October 28 (US EST) by visiting our Download Destination site.  Patrons will be able to select a lending period of one, two, or three weeks, which begins at the date of checkout.

Description: 

In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.

Both eBook and audiobook formats of this title will be available for the program. Users will be able to read the title in their browser immediately through OverDrive Read, or download the EPUB, Kindle (US only), or MP3 format to enjoy on nearly every device. without worrying about wait lists or holds. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

October 21, 6:30 pm
Presented by Richard Hill

Join us for Richard Hill's true and intensely personal story of how he pieced together the long-kept secret of his own origins.  This highly suspenseful book is a page-turning saga of personal detective work that will appeal to anyone who loves a good mystery.

But this isn't fiction.  It's an engrossing account of an adoptee trying to reclaim the biological family denied him by sealed birth records.  This fascinating quest, including the author's landmark use of DNA testing, takes readers on an exhilarating roller-coaster ride and concludes with a twist that rivals anything Hollywood has to offer.
