Clearwater Beach will be awash with nostalgia on March 14 as friends and neighbors, young and old, guests and visitors gather at the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center for a good, old-time, lively and exciting Sock Hop takes place. Come to dance, come to watch, come to enjoy the music, come to see and be seen - - but come!
Meantime, the newest books have just been put on the shelves at the Clearwater Beach Branch Library (located in a trailer in the parking lot of the Recreation Center).
Among the latest editions in a new book by Paul Evans, author of The Christmas Box and Finding Noel. This one is title simply The Gift. It is the story of a what happens when a little boy is discovered to have the gift of healing, and the people who either love, or wish to exploit his gift. Written in Richard Evans usual spare and beautiful prose, the book turns our thoughts to what really matters in life.
Other volumes awaiting your pleasure range from Amazing Relationships In The Natural World about animals and humor; Murder On K Street, the latest murder mystery by Margaret Truman; and The Abstinence Teacher, a tale about separation of church and state issues in a small town.
If the book you are looking for is not on the shelf, our friendly librarian will be glad to order it for you. Ordered books are usually available the next day for you to pick up.
