Glenside readers continue to find great books to read this summer.
I just finished reading the book, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and I loved it! The story is told by Enzo, a mixed-breed dog adopted by Denny as a pup. If you are a racing fan it's a bonus as this book is full of racing history and technique. Enzo relays the story of Denny’s wife, Eve, who becomes sick and the affect this has on the whole family.

The Booktalker volunteer group discusses a lot more than just books. They recently recommended the following movies.
The Appalachian Trail is a 2,184 mile long public footpath that traverses the scenic, wooded, pastoral, wild, and culturally resonant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Conceived in 1921, built by private citizens, and completed in 1937, the Appalachian Trail begins in Georgia and ends in Maine. Please join us on Wednesday, July 17th at 7:00 p.m. as William DiFabio presents an Appalachian Trail program. Walk-ins are welcome!

When U.S. citizen and vocal anti-American activist Roberto Moreno is shot and killed in a Bahamian hotel, New York ADA Nance Laurel begins to investigate the conspiracy that the murder was planned and ordered by a U.S. government official. Laurel asks Forensic expert (and quadriplegic) Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs for help. The problem? There is virtually no physical evidence for the duo to examine. Plus, the Bahamian police have attributed the murder to a drug cartel and consider the case closed.
The tenth installment in Deaver’s excellent series, The Kill Room continues to showcase forensic science and delivers all the hallmarks fans have come to expect: a fast pace, red herrings, and enough twists to make you dizzy. This thrilling mystery can be read as a standalone, or you can start with The Bone Collector. Fans of Ridley Pearson’s series featuring Lou Boldt and Daphne Matthews, or Thomas Harris’s Hannibal Lecter books may also enjoy this title.
