We enjoy creating displays around the store. Themes such as Valentine’s Day and Back to School are obvious. Sometimes we collect books around a subject: Monarch Butterflies or Women in WWII were popular. Other selections are more esoteric: once we filled a window with the many, many novels and history books with a photo or painting of a woman walking away from the from the viewer!
This week we created a display of books related to Alzheimer’s prompted by the upcoming Upper Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s which takes place on September 22nd. (For more information, visit the Alzheimer’s Association.) We included books about coping with the disease such as Learning the Hard Way: A Caregiver's Struggle With Alzheimer's by Hanover resident, Donna Grant Reilly. Other titles like The Remember Balloons may help children understand when a grandparent is struggling.
Next week’s special display will feature Banned Books with the theme “Censorship Leaves Us in the Dark. Keep the Light On!” What an eclectic collection THAT promises to be. Harry Potter, Captain Underpants, The Hate U Give, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the Holy Bible have all been banned!
