The Oberon Library is hosting a wonderful Closing the Gap and NAIDOC display by Oberon High School. We have the “Closing the Gap Rap” compiled by Matt Leven and Luke McFarlane. Information is also available on the National Day Against Bullying and Violence Campaign. Drop into the Library and have a look at the display.
Council have recently purchased a wide range of audio (talking) books and we have listed just a few:
THE CROSSING PLACES by Elly Griffiths
When she is not digging up bones or other ancient objects, Ruth Galloway lectures at the University of North Norfolk. She lives happily alone in a remote place called Saltmarsh overlooking the North Sea. When a child’s bones are found in the marshes near an ancient site that Ruth worked on ten year earlier, Ruth is asked to date them. Soon it becomes clear that Ruth is in grave danger from a killer who knows that her expert knowledge is being used to help the police with their enquiries.
THE PASSENGER by Lisa Lutz
With her husband’s dead body still warm, Tanya Dubois has only one option: run. When the police figure out that she doesn’t officially exist, they’ll start asking questions she can’t answer. Desperate to keep the past buried, she adopts and sheds identities as she flees. Along the way she meets a cop with unknown motives and a troubled woman who sees through her disguise – and who may be friend or foe. An intense psychological thriller.
YOU SENT ME A LETTER by Lucy Dawson
At 2 am on the morning of her 40th Birthday, Sophie wakes in the darkness of her bedroom and finds a stranger watching her from the foot of the bed. The intruder hands Sophie a letter and issues an ultimatum: the message is to be opened at her forthcoming party, in front of family and friends, exactly 8 pm. Any failure to comply will not end well. Sophie can only think of one person who hates her enough to have hired a professional - her finances ex-wife.
