Please join us in reading this year’s selection for One Book, One Philadelphia:

427590Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
National Book Award winner Cold Mountain is the acclaimed American epic of a Civil War soldier journeying through a divided country to return to the woman he loves, while she struggles to maintain her father’s farm and make sense of a new and troubling world.




And the companion children’s book:

Sounder1Sounder by William H. Armstrong
This Newbery Medal-winning novel tells the story of a poor Southern sharecropping family and their dog, Sounder. Having little money or resources to buy food, a boy’s father takes Sounder out each night to hunt raccoons and possums. But when game grows scarce, the father is forced to resort to desperate measures, with harrowing consequences for himself and his family. Faithful Sounder protects the family at home as the boy embarks on an odyssey to redeem his father’s sacrifice.


Both books are available in the Ryerss library.  Come in and check them out!
