STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH
Phosphorescence: on awe, wonder & things that sustain you when the world goes dark. By Julia Baird
Julia Baird’s search for the ‘light within’ and for what makes people shine has resulted in the perfect book for 2020 as the world seems to have been turned upside down. This beautifully written book investigates how we can find the light within each of us that will sustain us through the darkest of times. Baird shares her own personal accounts and investigations into seeking out awe and wonder in the world, paying more attention to the present and living deliberately, finding stillness and silence, being with friends, and finding the extraordinary in the everyday or ordinary. Now available in hard-back or audiobook at Parkes Shire Library.
Don’t forget Storytime on our Facebook page every Wednesday at 10:30am to see library staff reading children’s books – it’s the next best thing to actually being here in the library!
