Library Happenings

Henning School

We received a generous donation of 48 Stephen King novels from one of our staff members.  These books are in terrific shape and just wanted someone to come and check them out.  If you are a fan of Stephen King or maybe you have never read anything he has written, come on up to the Henning Library and look what we have.  

Our first featured book is The Green Mile.  The back jacket cover reads “Welcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary, home to the Depression-worn men of E. Block.  Convicted killers all, each awaits his turn to walk the Green Mile, keeping a date with “Old Sparky,” Cold Mountain’s electric chair.  Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working the Mile.  But he’s never seen anyone like John Coffey, a man with the body of a giant and the mind of a child, condemned for a crime terrifying in its violence and shocking in its depravity.  In this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous, truth about Coffey, a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs…and yours.”

“11//22/63” is the second featured book this week written by Stephen King.  The jacket cover on this book reads “Life can turn on a dime-or stumble into the extraordinary, as it does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in a Maine town.  While grading essays by his GED students, Jake reads a gruesome, enthralling piece penned by janitor Harry Dunning, fifty years ago.  Harry somehow survived his father’s sledgehammer slaughter of his entire family. Jake is blown away…but an even more bizarre secret comes to light when Jake’s friend Al, owner of the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession-to prevent the Kennedy assassination.  How?  By stepping through a portal in the diner’s storeroom, and into the era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and cigarette smoke…Finding himself in warmhearted Jodie, Texas. Jake begins a new life.  But all turns in the road lead to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald.  The course of history is about to be rewritten…and become heart-stopping suspenseful.”

Stop on up to the library between 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons following the school calendar and we will have the coffee waiting for you.
