The Thanksgiving books are up for display in the library. We have many fun and lovely books for all ages, but I wanted to highlight this unique book: "Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving", by Laurie Halse Anderson with illustrations by Matt Faulkner. Sarah is a real-life, heroine who uses the powers of persistence and persuasive writing to petition president after president (over 38 years!) to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. As you know, she succeeded. So, when you are enjoying a day of turkey, football, and family togetherness say "Thanks" to Sarah.
