Our patrons have been busily reading away this summer! We have reviews of four more books that may spark your interest.

Kelly enjoyed Tony Danza’s book about his year as a rookie teacher I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had. She appreciated Danza’s honesty and his insights into the struggles and rewards of teaching and wrote, “teachers will nod their heads” while reading this one.

Mother of Pearl by Melinda Haynes is beautifully written and should be savored like a rich dessert, according to Natasha. She writes, “It’s lyrical and poetic with characters you will fall in love with.”

Jim gave No Ordinary Disruption by Richard Dobbs, James Manyika, and Jonathan Woetzel an excellent rating. He writes, “the book discusses the major trends which are causing the economic changes happening in the world at such a fast pace. Lots of examples reinforce the trends and factors described.”

The Moor’s Account by Laila Lalami was enjoyed by Silvia. She writes, “This historical fiction provides a viewpoint of an unwilling passenger. It’s tale of unfulfilled aspirations and physical and psychological survival.”
