The next Read & Feed book discussion features “Running with Sherman” by Christopher McDougall. When McDougall agreed to take in a donkey from an animal hoarder, he thought it would be no harder than the rest of the adjustments he and his family had made. But when Sherman arrived, he was so sick he could barely move. Chris decided to undertake a radical rehabilitation program designed not only to heal Sherman’s body but his mind as well. Stop by the library to pick up a copy of the book scheduled to be discussed on Monday, March 13 at noon.

Jayne Ann Krentz’s latest novel, “Sleep No More” is the first book in her new trilogy “Lost Night Files.” An earthquake and fire partially destroyed a hotel where three women were staying, leaving them without any memory of their time there. Now close friends, the three co-host a podcast called the Lost Night Files. They are hoping to connect with others who may have had a similar experience – an experience that has somehow enhanced the psychic abilities already present in each woman. “Sleep No More” is also available digitally in Libby.
