At the Library for October 17th, 2017

Updated 2017/10/16

 

 

Deceit, distraction and murder rain down on a Banff forest warden after she begins to investigate why certain animals are disappearing at an alarming in Dave Butler’s ‘Full Curl.’ A Cranbrook biologist and forester, Butler based this thriller (the first of three) on an actual investigation he worked on. The story is very local and very entertaining.

Please note there is always a Wednesday evening Story Time at 6:30 pm for ages 3 to 9 and their caregivers. Perfect way to unwind.
