A look at what's happening at Willard

No turkeys among the staff's November selections

The library staff has done a wide variety of reading, listening, and watching this month.

Listening to:

  • Frozen II Soundtrack (available from Willard's Hoopla app)
    • If you've seen Frozen II in theaters, don't miss a chance to sing along to this soundtrack.
  • Hollywood's Bleeding by Post Malone (also available from Hoopla)
    • A bit of hip-hop/rap, mixed in with a few pop hits, the Sunflower and Circle singer/rapper is back with a new album. Rolling Stones gives it 4 out of 5 stars.

Reading:

  • Nomadland by Jessica Bruder
    • A book about poverty and struggle as the author writes about the lives of families forced into nomadic lifestyles as they move from job to job trying to get by.
  • Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg
    • The author takes interest in a group of girls she discovers being raised and living as boys and men claiming neither gender but a third "in-between" gender. The reasons span from more opportunities, religious superstitions, status elevation, and protection. But what happens when these individuals are forced to live as women again?
  • Queen Victoria: Twenty-Four Days That Changed her Life by Lucy Worsley
    • Each chapter of this book is dedicated to important events in Queen Victoria's life spanning from her upbringing, her coronation, marriage to Albert, and her reign.
  • Call of the Wild by Jack London
    • This beloved classic follows the story of Buck, a stolen house dog forced into a world of dog fights and brutal sled pulling, in the Alaskan wilderness during the late 1890s Klondike Gold Rush.

Watching:

  • The Crown (Netflix)
  • Holiday in the Wild (Netflix)
  • Modern Love (Amazon Prime)
  • Castlerock (Hulu)
  • Overlord (Hulu)
