SPL Staff Picks

Every month, (well, almost every month) the staff of SPL compile a list of their favourite books, dvds, and cds and share them in the library catalogue.  The March list is an eclectic listing of items. There is a celtic/punk cd, crime fiction, a how to book for protesters and more.  
"Paris Without End: The True Story of Hemingway's First Wife" by Gioia Diliberto was chosen by our Deputy Director Wendy Hicks.  
According to Wendy: 
Those who read & enjoyed Paula McLain's novel, The Paris Wife owe it to themselves to read this incredible biography of Ernest Hemingway's first wife. Author Diliberto leaves no stone unturned, covering the same time period in Hadley Hemingway'sand indeed, was the first to have access to a series of taped interviews between her subject & her good friend Alice Sokoloff. Groaning with intimate detail, those fascinated with Hemingway, the Paris scene in the 1920's, or even the course of true but doomed love will thoroughly enjoy this solidly written book.
 We hope also enjoy some of these titles! If you do, be sure to leave a comment in the catalogue.
