Coming Soon to the Carteret County Public Library

Let's Talk About It!
January 14 - March 11, 2013

     This series features four novels and one history-based memoir, all written between 2003 and 2007. They bring a childhood perspective to bear on dangerous worlds where innocence is quickly lost. These works from the new millennium differ from those before in that they begin more starkly with recognitions of the inevitability of violence and loss. Darkness fills the margins. Yet as grim as life can sometimes get, hope exists where it always has, in human hearts, in strong memories, in a commitment to reach across the divide to hold anotherís hand.
