Hooray, party in the library 🎉 (and an exclusive glimpse of our office)! Did you know the library staff celebrates birthdays with cake, garlands and presents? 😄 Today it's time for the first celebration of the year! Hmm, and maybe we shouldn't remove the garlands, it looks so much nicer with some extra colour 🎈 Now excuse us, we're off to eat some cake 🎂 #librariesofinstagram#birthday#partyinthelibrary.
This week we’ve chosen Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple.
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To Elgie Branch, a Microsoft wunderkind, she's his hilarious, volatile, talented, troubled wife. To fellow mothers at the school gate, she's a menace. To design experts, she's a revolutionary architect. And to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, quite simply, mum.
Then Bernadette disappears. And Bee must take a trip to the end of the earth to find her.
Where’d You Go Bernadette is a compulsively readable, irresistibly written, deeply touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's place in the world.
An upcoming film adaptation will star Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, Laurence Fishburne, Troian Bellisario and James Urbaniak. It is scheduled to be released on May 11, 2018. We have a copy of Where’d You Go Bernadette available to borrow from the library. This week’s pick is sponsored by Oshin the library mascot! #wheredyougobernadette
