RANSOM A NOVEL DAV! D MALOUF lave a little faith "Have a Little Faith," Mitch Albom If you liked "Tuesdays with Morrie" you'll like this one. Mitch is asked by his child- hood rabbi to do his eulogy. While Mitch tries to learn about the rabbi as a person, instead of as the "larger than life" image he had of him as a child, he struggles with his own beliefs and faith. Intermixed is a story of a man from a different religion and his struggle with his past and his own faith. Have a tis- sue ready. Chris Crawford Epilog Books "Adoration of Jenna Fox,", Mary E. Pearson Seventeen-year-old Jenna awakes after a year in a coma Tour Ioo projects Anyone who is interested in past and future fuel reduc- tion projects on the Lassen National Forest are invited to participate in a Thursday, Oct. 7, field tour with Forest Service employees and Quin- cy Library Group members. Participants will visit com- pleted mastication treat- ments in the Grays Peak De- fensible Fuels Profile Zone and some proposed treatment areas at the Dry Hills zone, near Mineral. The fuel reduction zones are two of many projects on the forest designed to create landscapes and communities that are more fire-resilient. They are part of the Herger- Feinstein Quincy Library Group Pilot Project. Topics of the day will in- clude the management of variable-density thinning. The tour will consist of walking and driving, and par- ticipants should be prepared for cold weather. Carpooling is encouraged and may be arranged at one of the two meeting locations. In Chester, meet at the A1- manor Ranger District off.tee, located at 900 Highway 36, at 9a.m. Closer to Mineral, meet at the Morgan Summit Snowmo- bile Staging Area at 9:45 a.m. tory, mysteries among th' with no memory of her life. Her family works to help her remember. As the memories start to surface it becomes clear to Jenna that all is not as it seems. If you are looking for something different, give this book a try. With a mixture of mystery, ethical dilemma and science fiction this story will capti- vate you. Chris Epilog Books ancient characters saw and felt, and can convey those ac- tions and feelings with the lu- minous quality of a waking dream. David Malouf has been de- scribed as Australia's greatest living writer. Ruth Quincy Susan Wittig Mbert's mys- tery novels and her memoirs have been a great revelation to me. Her mysteries are fun, but they do more than enter- tain. They take you on a journey through her anxieties, joys, gastronomical explorations, members of a society without losing our identity. Having been a professor of "Ransom," David Malouf I give this book my highest English, she shows an ex- tremely broad knowledge of literature, and it is obvious that she has read extensively the type of literature that she finds uplifting, entertaining and instructive. I was pleased to note that in her memoirs she quoted a fa- vorite English metaphysical poet-priest, George Herbert. The following quote is in ref- erence to asking for blessings in the exaltation of the land and the recognition of our oneness with it: "First, a blessing of God for the fruits of the field: Second, justice in the preservation of bounds: Thirdly, charity in th 's loving walking and neighbor- ly accompanying one anoth- er, with reconciliation of dif- ferences at that time, if there be any: Fourthly, mercy in relieving the poor by a liber- al distribution and largesse..." I can safely say that I will be far more attentive to every- thing I come across when I en- joy another walk through our woods and mountain trails since having read Susan Wit- tig Albert's books with their vast understanding of the spirit that is the land and life around us. Salvatore Catalano Taylorsville praise: I wish I could read it again for the first time. "Ransom" is the ancient story of the last days of the Trojan War: Achilles, the Greek, and his closest friend Patroclus; Hector, Troy's greatest warrior; and his fa- ther, Priam, king of Troy. Hector kills Patroclus; Achilles seeks to avenge that death by slaying Hector and desecrating his body. Priam, the Trojan king, goes to the Greek encampment to beg for his son's body. The story is as Homer told it in "The Iliad," and yet it is as if this 21st-century author can see and feel what these Celebrate the freedom to choose our books Susan Bryner B&B Booksellers in Old Town tucked inside, the opportunity to remind Special to Feather Publishing Chester agree that the free- The American Booksellers ourselves to be ever watchful dom to access informationAssociation and others who of those opinions and issues "Banned Books Week" is and express ideas, "even if the celebrate the week remind us that could threaten one of Sept. 25 - Oct. 2, and it is an information and ideas might we have many dedicated peo- our most important free- annual event celebrating the be considered unorthodox or pie to thank for those books doms, the inteUectual free- freedom to read and the im- unpopular," provides the that remain on our shelves dora insured to us by the portance of the First Amend- foundation for one of ourand in our culture, with li- First Amendment, and cele- ment. most important freedoms as brarians, teachers and book- brate the power of literature According to the American citizens of the United States. sellers topping the push, pull, teach, stimulate Library Association, "Banned During "Banned Books "Banned Books Week" sets and even make us uneasy.
