North Country locals share their reading choices


Emmett J. Hoops: “‘Rising Tide,’ by John M. Barry. It’s about the 1927 flood of the Mississippi — which doesn’t sound terribly interesting today, I’ll admit. However, the political decisions taken in its aftermath profoundly changed America. This is an edge-of-your-seat nonfiction masterpiece.”

Jeanette Dennison Kononan: “I am in the middle of ‘The Dirty Life - A Memoir of Farming, Food and Love’ by Kristin Kimball. I am finding it to be very inspiring and well written.”

Jan Washburn: “‘Wish You Well’ by David Baldacci — a coming of age story set in Virginia coal mine country in the ‘40s.... Being made into a movie. Wonderful story.”

Fred V. Provoncha “‘Dirt in the Skirt,’ the real story of ‘A League of Their Own’ and a walk back in time to the early 20th century.”
