From Library Journal: “English Quaker Honor Bright wants nothing more than to lead a simple and righteous life, but when her engagement to her childhood sweetheart is broken, Honor sails for America and the great unknown of the Ohio frontier. Though she begins her journey with optimism, it quickly fades when tragedy strikes, and Honor finds herself alone and afraid in her new home, depending, for the first time, on the kindness of strangers. Swept up in America’s antislavery movement, forced to choose between loyalties to those she loves and the greater good, Honor discovers that the world is not as simple as she once believed. Chevalier’s writing continues to have that can’t-put-it-down quality, and her change in settings from Europe to 19th-century frontier America is a welcome one. Highly recommended.”
Traveling art on display!
Our regional library system has teamed up with Minnesota Visual Artists to create easel, a traveling art exhibit, so everyone can … Experience Art in Southeastern Libraries. This art collection has been touring libraries in our region and will be on display here at Red Wing from May 17-June 28th.
Easel’s inaugural tour consists of pieces that correspond with the artist’s interpretation of book, letter or letters, reading, authors, or the library. The work is limited in size to 12 x 12 inches, and all pieces are by artists who reside within our library district.
This display is only here for a limited time so come check it out and let us know what you think!
Learn how to take better pictures! Come to a presentation from the Red Wing Photo Club this Saturday, May 18, at 10am downstairs at the library. Bring your camera! It’s free and photographers of any level of skill are welcome.
