Guys READ

Calling all guys!!

If you're free on October 18th from 4:30-5:30 pm and in 4th-8th grade, you should come hang out at the library, talk about books, eat, and do other cool stuff during Guys Read.

In honor of all things spooky, we'll be reading How They Croaked by Gerogia Bragg.

How They Croaked Cover Art

"Over the course of history men and women have lived and died. In fact, getting sick and dying can be a big, ugly mess-especially before the modern medical care that we all enjoy today. How They Croaked relays all the gory details of how nineteen world figures gave up the ghost. For example: It is believed that Henry VIII's remains exploded within his coffin while lying in state. Doctors "treated" George Washington by draining almost 80 ounces of blood before he finally kicked the bucket. Right before Beethoven wrote his last notes, doctors drilled a hole in his stomach without any pain medication. Readers will be interested well past the final curtain, and feel lucky to live in a world with painkillers, X-rays, soap, and 911."
