The Biblio File: Library News

Who has watched the Netflix Series Firefly Lane?  You knew that it was based on a book by Kristin Hannah right??  Well the library ghost did – it was knocked down from our latest display “Page to Screen” which features this and other great books that have later been made into movies and series.

“To the people around them they were known as KateandTully or the Firefly Lane Girls. A single, inseparable unit. On the surface they were as opposite as two people could be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn. Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret home life that is destroying her. Yet they are best friends who swear they’ll be there for each other, and for thirty years that promise holds strong – until events and choices in their lives make that promise impossible.

Firefly Lane is a novel for anyone who ever drank Boone’s Farm apple wine while listening to Abba. It’s a novel for anyone who ever had someone who knew you better than you know yourself. It’s more than a coming-of-age novel – it’s the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It’s about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you – and knows what has the power to hurt and heal you.”  From Fantastic Fiction.

If you liked this book, there’s a sequel – Fly Away!

A few other titles from this display include Shadow and Bone, Queen’s Gambit, and Where the Crawdad’s Sing.  Come down to the library and check out this display – let us know if there are others that should be highlighted!
