For more information, call Julia at 937-386-2556.

On April 27 at 5:40 p.m., we’ll discuss The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines with Mark Dagostino.

“Are you ready to see your fixer upper?”

These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like–Who are these people?What’s the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become America’s new best friends.

The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.

Book Club @ North Adams Library
May 25 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Book Club @ North Adams Library | Seaman | Ohio | United States

Join the North Adams Library Adult Book Club on Thursday, May 25 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson. Borrow a copy of this title at the library desk in hardback, paperback or audio book, or download an eBook from the Ohio Digital Library.

God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world’s longest continuous footpath – The Appalachian Trail.

The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas.

With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey.

An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.
