At the Library for May 1st, 2018

Updated 2018/04/30

In 1789, Alexander Mackenzie traveled 1200 miles on the immense river in Canada that now bears his name, in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. Iraq War veteran Brian Castner retraces Mackenzie’s grueling route, paddling a solo canoe in his latest book ‘Disappointment River.’

After her grandmother’s imaginary world comes to life, a teen girl must enter it and rescue her mother in Melissa Albert’s ‘The Hazel Wood.’
