When Haven Kimmel was born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was a sleepy little hamlet. Nicknamed “Zippy”, she possessed big eyes and even bigger ears. In this loving memoir, Kimmel takes readers back in time to when small-town America was still in the innocent postwar period and treats readers to an appealing, and knowing, heroine.     Publisher Description

TinkersTuesday March 25, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Our selection this month is Tinkers by Paul Harding

Tinkers is a haunting little book that weaves together the story of George Crosby, who is dying, with the story of his father, Howard Crosby. As George lies hallucinating, he tries to untangle the threads of his youth and finally come to grips with the enigma that is his father. Howard is an epileptic at a time in history when being so gets one labeled “insane.” He suffers under that burden and finds a way of dealing with it that will haunt his son forever. Paul Harding writes like no one you’ve ever read: lyrical, poetic, spare, and lush.

Our selection this month is The World According To GARP by John Irving

“GARP is a tragedy, with funny parts. It is a comedy, with heart-wrenching moments. It is riotously funny, and crushingly moving. It is a story of writers, and insanity, and adultry, and terminal cases. Like the best novels, it displays the entire life of an individual the reader would not otherwise get to know. It presents you with places you want to see, and people you wouldn’t mind sharing a beer with. It is Irving’s best work, and a landmark in American literature.” Amazon

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.
