Luncheon With Books
                                   Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Author Julie Harrison Wallace will review her book:
Rhoda: the Damsel
Born mute, an unloved teen runs away to Jerusalem. Hungry, penniless, and with no voice to ask for help, she is about to forsake her quest and return to Jericho. But a fateful encounter with Jesus rewards her faith with a voice. Her innocent nature and external beauty earn the young girl her very own name - Rhoda, which is Greek for "rose". But the most precious gift she receives is the daily example of Jesus' love and sacrifice. The grateful girl travels the countryside with Jesus, His apostles, and the faithful women followers.
Jennie Stephens Smith Library in New Albany
A light lunch will be provided by the Democratic Women
beginning at 11:30 followed at noon by the book review.

Our Mission
It is the hope of the Union County Library System to maintain and improve the quality of life for all citizens of our community by providing resources that enhance and contribute to individual knowledge, enlightenment, and enjoyment. We especially recognize our responsibility to serve as a place for adults and children to discover the joy of reading and the value of libraries.
  • Maya Angelou
    "When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.” 
  • Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
    "From that time on, the world was hers for the reading. She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack of intimate friends. Books became her friends and there was one for every mood.” 
  • Kurt Vonnegut

    "A book is an arrangement of twenty-six phonetic symbols, ten numerals, and about eight punctuation marks, and people can cast their eyes over these and envision the eruption of Mount Vesuvius or the Battle of Waterloo.” 

  • J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
    "What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
