Inspirational Author Susan Spencer-Wendel Passes at 47.


"Susan lived fully with ALS since her diagnosis in 2009 right up until her recent death this past June. In her obituary the LA times hailed her book as "heartbreaking and humorous". A truly inspiring read on living life to the fullest despite any physical limitations one may have.

Ukiah Library Book Club

Ukiah Library's Book Club meets next on Wednesday, October 16th at 6:30 pm. Our book choice is The Oracle of Stamboul, by Michael David Lukas.

"What's delicious (and indeed Turkishly delightful) about this book is its sumptuous setting. It makes those of us who have been to Istanbul want to go back, and those who haven't wish once again to go." (Reviewed by Tess Taylor (http://bnreview.barnesandnoble.com).

Pick up your copy in the Ukiah Library and join us on the 16th.
