Book Club Reads John Grisham Novel

Books and Biscuits Book Club met at the Cook-Hill House in historic Grand Cane Sept. 4. This month’s book selection was “The Rooster Bar” by John Grisham. Edith Herring led the book discussion.

In “The Rooster Bar,” Grisham paints a perverse fairy tale of moral uncertainty starring three “heroes” fighting back against a system that’s unduly burdened them with student loans. Grisham admits to “fast and loose with reality” in the acknowledgements. He cites as inspiration for his legal farce a 2014 expose in “The Atlantic” by Paul Campos titled “The Law-School Scam.”

DeSoto Parish Libraries Seek Patrons’ Help

As patron’s demand for information becomes larger and more complex, library staff know they need to keep up. To do this, they must start by collecting and analyzing a wider range of information about the library—both about how it operates and how conditions are developing in our current and potential markets.

Although the libraries have much strength and offer a wide variety of services to their patrons, the staff is stepping back to scrutinize what is working, as well as what is not happening, to reach out to more of our community that is not utilizing the library.
