Summer Reading Recommended by Leanne Good, LPL's Children's Coordinator


Children’s Services Coordinator Leanne G. hopes you’ll have a laugh or two while reading Travels with My Family by Marie-Louise Gay. She writes “This funny story by a wonderful Canadian author is about a family’s unconventional vacations. It brought back fond memories of my own family’s summer road trips. Who wants to go to boring Disneyland anyway?!”

Summer Reading Suggests by the LPL Staff

Circulation Assistant Tricia E. hopes you’ll love these summer reads:

The Precious One by Marisa de los Santos. A story about family, about love, and about what we think we know of each other. It is told in turn by two sisters in the process of learning about each other, each with a radically different relationship with their father. The Precious One pulls the reader along from one chapter to the next and is very difficult to put down – perfect for lazy summer days of reading.

The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. The autobiography of ten Boom, a heroine of the Dutch resistance and survivor of   Nazi concentration camps. She writes about hiding Jews and underground workers in a hidden room in her home, being tested in the camps, and through it all, the enduring love of God.


The Godwulf Manuscript by Robert B Parker. Read the Spenser novel that started it all. Our hero, a private investigator from Boston, is hired to recover a stolen illuminated manuscript. Lies, murder, deceit, near death and near misses  ensue, wrapped up in a nefarious plot involving drugs and money.
