Between the Shelves
By Amy Hunter Assistant Community Librarian
When thinking about what to share in Between the Shelves, we consider a few things. Is there anything about the upcoming time frame to highlight? What has the library received lately? What haven’t we talked about recently? There are a few notable events in November we’d like to highlight.
Saturday, Nov. 11 is Veterans Day. The library has a number of great books and movies that focus on the lives and sacrifices of our veterans. We have classics like “For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Ernest Hemingway; memoirs like “Red Platoon” by Clinton Romesha; “The White Donkey: Terminal Lance,” an adult graphic novel by Maximilian Uriarte; and a modern story, “The Yellow Birds” by Kevin Powers.
November is also Native American Heritage Month. The Big Sky Community Library has many great resources to learn more, including memoirs like Sherman Alexie’s “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” and works of fiction by Alexie, and Louise Erdrich. We also have a well-reviewed documentary mini-series named “500 Nations.”
This season as we think about the history of not only this nation, but the entire continent, come explore the library to learn more.
