“Read the other half….” says bored librarian.
Thank you, Richard Peck for the marvelous, marvelous Here Lies the Librarian! A funny book, resonating with issues STILL facing libraries nearly 100 years after the books setting, and includes both Dad’s obscure Indiana birthplace and a character who not only has Mom’s obscure maiden name, but she almost has mom’s equally obscure first name! Great work from a great author! Nothing “young adult” about this–no vampires, or anything except totally believable characters and setting. You are right, Brownsburg IS stuck up–still almost 100 years later! [teeheehee].
