Works by more than 30 “emerging” artists – creative people without a lot of experience showing their work – will be on display at the Fond du Lac Public Library June 3-July 1.

June Crafternoon: Woven Map Travel Journal

These are the days of wanderlust; the road beckons. Every good traveler – or dreamer – knows that memories are for capturing. The June Crafternoon program at the Fond du Lac Public Library is just the thing. Crafters will use upcycled maps to weave and cover a journal, perfect for the season (or a great Father’s Day gift).

Escape to Chesapeake Shores

For me, reading Dogwood Hill by Sherryl Woods was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The twelfth in her Chesapeake Shores series, it is a continuation of the O'Brien family saga in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. Those O'Brien's are a meddlesome and loveable family, full of matchmakers known for lots of well-intentioned hijinks. Dogwood Hill is a simple story that is just plain pleasant and enjoyable and filled with family love and subtle humor – a perfect reading getaway.

The Liar by Nora Roberts

The Liar is the perfect title for the latest romantic suspense novel by Nora Roberts. Richard Foxworth, the man who swept Shelby Pomeroy off her feet and whisked her away from small town Tennessee to the most exclusive suburb of Philadelphia, fathered her child, and bathed her in luxury, was one of the biggest liars of all time. When he is declared missing at sea in the Atlantic Ocean, all of Richard's lies and deceitfulness are revealed and Shelby, and her three-year-old daughter, Callie, are left to pick up the pieces.
