We stopped into The McKenzie County Public Library this month to find out what Watford City is reading right now. The selections below cater to readers from an expansive range of ages, backgrounds, and tastes:
Nanette’s Baguette by Mo Willems is a picture book for little ones. The bright colors and delightful way the words trip off the reader’s tongue are sure to bring a chuckle. “Is this the last time Nanette will ever get the baguette?”
Spy School: Secret Service by Stuart Gibbs is a junior fiction chapter book and the fifth in the popular Spy School series. Ben Ripley is a Secret Agent who soon finds that the fate of the United States rests on his shoulders…and he’s only thirteen!
Dare Mighty Things by Heather Kaczynski, a heart-pounding story for teens, is a mix of Hunger Games and space travel. “You must be gifted. You must be younger than 25. You must be willing to accept the dangers that you will face if you win.”
A Column of Fire by Ken Follett is a masterful work of historical fiction, and third in the Kingsbridge series. The turbulent era of Queen Elizabeth I of England and her rise to the throne is chronicled amid drama, heartbreak and intrigue. This is a book selection sure to please fans of Philippa Gregory.
Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C.Gwynne is a nonfiction New York Times Bestseller. Wars, horsemanship, and surprising family connections weave the history of the rise and fall of the Comanche tribe and one man’s story of how the United States was born.
Don’t forget! The library offers a variety of free activities for all ages, including Storytime, Lego Club, Author Talks, and other specialty workshops. Check their website or Facebook page for more information.
