SSCL Digital Literacy Services Summer Reading Season Raffles – Week 2

Dig Lit Summer Reading Raffle Poster Week 2 July 13, 2015

On deck for this week’s special Digital Literacy Services Summer Reading Program Raffle are two more prizes!

Drop into Creation Station, The Southeast Steuben County Library Makerspace, during our hours of operation this week and fill out a raffle ticket!

The first prize is the the book Summer’s End by Mary Alice Monroe — a great summer read book & here’s a summary of the plot: In the powerful and heartwarming conclusion to her bestselling Lowcountry Summer trilogy, New York Times author Mary Alice Monroe brings her readers back to the charm and sultry beauty of Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, to reveal how the pull of family bonds and true love is as strong and steady as the tides.

It is summer’s end and Sea Breeze, the family’s beloved estate on Sullivan’s Island, must be sold. It is an emotional time of transition as Mamaw and the three sisters each must face loss and find a new place in the world.

Harper, the youngest sister, arrived at Sea Breeze intending to stay only a weekend, but a rift with her wealthy, influential mother left her without direction or a home. During this remarkable summer, free from her mother’s tyranny and with the help of her half sisters, Harper discovered her talents and independent spirit.

But summer is ending, and the fate of Sea Breeze hinges on Harper’s courage to decide the course of her own life. To do so she must release her insecurities and recognize her newfound strengths. She must accept love fully into her life—the love of Mamaw, Carson, and Dora, the love of Sea Breeze and the lowcountry, and most of all, the love of a Wounded Warrior who has claimed her heart.

The third book in Mary Alice Monroe’s trilogy that brims with “stories that touch the mind and heart of her readers” (Huffington Post), The Summer’s End follows three half sisters bound by love for their grandmother and the timeless beauty and traditions of the lowcountry.

And the second prize is the new CD Currency of Man by Jazz singer Melody Gardot; and here’s a brief description of the CD:

International best-selling singer, songwriter and musician, Melody Gardot, is back with her 4th studio album, Currency of Man.The highly-anticipated Currency of Man is an intensely creative milestone, transcending musical distinctions of jazz, blues and R&B, to offer a stirring social and musical statement. On the new album, Melody joins forces again with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein (their last collaboration, 2009 s My One and Only Thrill , sell over 1.5 million copies).

So  you can register for two great prizes for week 2 of the Summer Reading Program Season – drop by and check out our Makerspace, Creation Station, Tuesday between 1- 4 p.m. or Thursday between 5-8 p.m. and fill out a raffle ticket!

Have a great day!
Linda, SSCL
