October 2020 staff picks
Amee: This month, in honor of Halloween, I am sharing one of my
favorite horror books by Stephen King, The Stand. A dystopian novel
about a man-made virus which decimated the US population. The
survivors will battle to decide the fate of humanity. On December 17,
2020 CBS Access will release an updated TV mini-series of the book.
The library owns a copy of the book as well as the 1994 DVD TV
mini-series if you would like to borrow.

Burke. The series (#1-I’ve Got You Under My Skin) is about a producer

girl named Ollie and her cat, Pumpkin. While out playing on a beautiful
