It's safe to say that Cecelia is enjoying reading May's Chapter 1 Book Club book choice, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.  "It's really really good," she said with her facial expression showing just how much.

You may have heard a lot about the story. A movie of the same title, directed by Angelina Jolie was recently on the big screen.

The story is about Louis Silvie "Louie" Zamperini who was born January 26,1917 and died July 2, 2014. A U.S. airman, Zamperini survived when his bomber crashed during WWII. He spent 47 days adrift in the ocean before being rescued by the Japanese Navy. He was held as a prisoner of until the end of the war.

As a young lad, Zamperini was a handful taking to breaking the law and fighting.  As a teenager he channeled all that negative energy into running and was quite good at it. Good enough even to get him to the Berlin Olympics. 

Louie Zamperini is dubbed "One of America's greatest heroes."

Now, you just know that is one great story. So, you don't want to miss May's Chapter 1 Book Club, Thurs. May 14 at 6 p.m. No registration required, and you don't have to be a member. Just stop on by and join in the discussion. As always, Cecelia will have door prizes and light refreshments for you.

We'll see you there!

The April Adult Easter Egg Hunt runs all month long. So, even though the golden egg is out of the picture, sweet treats still abound! Come on in to the Pearl Library and look for pretty eggs hidden in the adult fiction and non-fiction sections. If you find an egg, bring it to the Reference desk and claim a small prize.

We'll see you there!
