Welcome to another #RPLstaffpicks #whatareyoureadingwednesday ! Pam is the Marketing Assistant at RPL & she absolutely LOVES short stories. So it was only natural that this book jumped out at her as she looked for a weekend read.Inside you'll find 8 powerful, emotionally absorbing stories, this is the indelible work of a keen observer of the human heart - a master at her best."Rich with hard-won wisdom & humanity, set in locales from Miami & Port-au-Prince to a small unnamed country in the Caribbean & beyond, Everything Inside is at once wide in scope & intimate, as it explores the forces that pull us together, or drive us apart, sometimes in the same searing instant."Find this title on cloudLibrary & at RPL ( when we open ! )

Here is something fun we can do as a community. Local History scan day is still a few months away but we can have some fun while we are stuck at home. Dig out your box of old photos and share a memory. It can be an event, a home, a business, street scene, local park. I bet we all have at least one image we can share. I will get it started with an image that will be on RPL's Local History Digital Archive.
