Oh. My. Word! This book! These words! Only 4% in, but this writing is genius. No spoilers, but if you've read it, you'll get this pic from Vesterheim, the Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, IA. I lived in #Iowa for 30+ years on *Chestnut* Street. Hello @librarylady Now in #Tennessee, I'm proud to know Stacy Clark, of the U.S. Forestry Service, who #CarryThatWeight to try to save the American Chestnut. https://www.acf.org/ #BeatleMaynia @Eggs

Miller's Valley: A Novel | Anna Quindlen
post image

#MayMovieMagic #WhenTheLeveeBreaks #BeatleMaynia #CarryThatWeight Mimi Miller is reflecting on her life as she looks back to the year the US government decides to flood her family land creating a diversion that will ultimately become a reservoir. As the river is allowed in, dampening the ground, loosening ties, it seems to drown people little by little forcing secrets to float up to the surface. A quiet but powerful story of home and belonging.

TrishB Sounds interesting 👍🏻 7mo
Cinfhen It was a little too reflective for me but it‘s beautifully written and a great character study @TrishB 7mo

Atlas Shrugged | Ayn Rand
post image

If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?"

I…don't know. What…could he do? What would you tell him?"

To shrug.
