Just In Time for Summer Reading!

Announcing our latest kits: The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. These two kits have been generously donated by the Manchester City Library Foundation and are hosted at the Manchester City Library.

The Help has been on the Publisher's Weekly Fiction Bestsellers list for 96 weeks, as of June 13th. Amazing!

Your group may want to hear what the listeners of The Diane Rehm Show on NPR had to say about The Help.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, though not as long on the bestsellers list, was published to great critical acclaim and was named by more than 60 critics as one of 2010's best books.

Here's an informative video of Skloot discussing her writing process:

To reserve either kit please contact Eleanor Croteau at 624-6550 ext 332, ecroteau@manchesternh.gov.

The RTG committee has yet another title to announce shortly. Stay tuned!
