She decides to move to Fell and visit the motel, where she quickly learns that nothing has changed since 1982. And she soon finds herself ensnared in the same mysteries that claimed her aunt.”

April’s Selection: “The Things We Carried” by Tim O’Brien

“Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried” is considered one of the finest books about the Vietnam War. Far from a combat story of pride and glory, it is a compassionate tale of the American soldier, brimming with raw honesty and thoughtful reflection.

The book’s narrator follows a platoon of infantrymen through the jungles of Vietnam. We see them trudge through the muck of a constant downpour, get hit by sniper fire, pull body parts out of a tree, laugh while they tell their stories to each other, and fall silent when faced with making sense of it all—both in the moment and twenty years later.

“The Things They Carried” is not just a tale of war, and the book’s themes are no less relevant today than they were decades ago. This award-winning work is a brutal, sometimes funny, often profound narrative about the human heart—how it fares under pressure and what it can endure.”

Pick up your copy at the Circulation Desk. Generally, large print and audiobooks are also available.

May’s Selection: “The Secret Book of Flora Lea” by Tim O’Brien
