Front page, baby!

We were delighted to open the Key West Citizen Tuesday and see a front page story about this year's One Island One Book -- thanks, Mandy! -- with a delightful photo of the author -- thanks, Rob!

We were especially delighted to see Lurie's kind references to the Library. And we're even more excited now to hear Cynthia Crossen's discussion, a bunch of Book Bites meetings and finally the Cafe con Libros where we get to hear from Lurie herself.

We have 18 copies of The Last Resort in our collection but they are all, as of this writing, checked out. And there's a waiting list. Do not despair, though!  They are being returned -- it's a pretty quick read -- and if you don't want to wait or you don't have a Monroe County Library card (everyone is welcome to attend the programs), they have a good supply of books at Key West Island Books -- for the excellent price of $5.98. They're at 513 Fleming Street -- just up the street from the library.
