East Kingston Library News

EAST KINGSTON - If you are a reader who enjoys Halloween chills and thrills, new titles abound this fall by favorite authors. Stephen King continues the story of “The Shining” in “Doctor Sleep”. “After decades as an itinerant alcoholic, middle-aged Dan Torrance uses his remnant powers to assist the dying before coming to the aid of a twelve-year-old girl being tortured by a tribe of murderous paranormals.”

Earlier this year, King released the first book in a new paperback line called Hard Case Crime. The cover art is reminiscent of pulp fiction murder novels of the 40’s and 50’s. “Joyland” is “set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, “Joyland” tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever”.

If you enjoyed the mini -series Under the Dome on TV, check out King’s novel here in print. Visit our on-line catalog, to read an excerpt from this book.

Watch for a new Charlaine Harris book coming at the end of the month. “Dead Ever After” marked the end of the Sookie Stackhouse novels - a series that garnered millions of fans and spawned the hit HBO television show True Blood. It also stoked a hunger that will never die…a hunger to know what happened next.

With characters arranged alphabetically - from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli - bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens.”

    The brightly lit electronic message board has been installed in front of the Hampstead Public Library, after much anticipation. The attractive sign will present rotating bulletins, hours, programs, activities, and special information…day and night. The Friends of Hampstead Public Library have pooled their profits with the Hollyhock Thrift Shop and other fundraising activities to make the electronic display possible. An attractive array of plants will highlight the base of the unit. Pictured are: Debra Hiett, right, library director, and Mary Lewis, a three-year library page, and Pinkerton Academy senior.
