Burien Library

Greetings again Dear Readers from your very own Burien Library’s Empress of Informationâ„¢!

I am certain that, like me, you’re all very thankful this time of year for all the goodness contained within.

I’m speaking of course about “within” hardcovers, softcovers and other covers used to contain excellent reading materials like you’ll find at your very own Burien Library.

What did you think I meant?

I don’t normally shout, but this is important (yet oh-so-obvious):

BULLET POINT BOOK REVIEW:
Thirteen Moons by Charles Frazier (fiction)

  • Twelve year old Will sets out on his own to run a remote trading post in Cherokee country.
  • Lots of interesting history and background of the Cherokee people and life in pre-Civil War America.
  • A love story
  • An adventure
  • And a bit of history too
  • A good read – highly recommended!
