For the wild weather of autumn, some wild reads and author events at the library!

Glasgow author, Anne Donovan's first novel Buddha Da was short listed for the Orange prize.

Being Emily
Things are never dull in the O'Connell family. Still, Fiona, squeezed between her quiet brother and her mischievous line-dancing twin sisters, thinks life in their tenement flat is far less interesting than Emily Bronte's. Moving, funny and ultimately heart-warming, Being Emily is a novel about one young girl trying to find her place in the world amid the turmoil that only your own family can create.

Buddha Da
Anne Marie's Da, a Glaswegian painter and decorator, has always been game for a laugh. So when he first takes up meditation at the Buddhist Centre, no one takes him seriously (especially when his pursuit of the new lama ends in a trip round the Carmunnock bypass). But as Jimmy becomes more involved in a search for the spiritual, his beliefs start to come into conflict with the needs of his wife, Liz. Cracks appear in their apparently happy family life, and the ensuing events change the lives of each family member

Tickets £2.00 available from any library.
