Reader asks: Any bookstores in Columbia dealing in JHG books?

Mike Crain inquires:
Greetings. Could you kindly tell me any books stores in Columbia that may deal in Janice Holt Giles' books? I would appreciate name of stores, address & if possible phone numbers. Thanks - Mike Crain
Reader suggestions? - Offhand, that sounds like a question which can be answered by the Adair County Public Library, by historian and book seller Mike Watson, or by David Pyles. I hope readers can say - and that maybe your question will inspire you or someone else to open a bookstore in Downtown Columbia. What better place? - EW

Reading note: The Bird Sisters of Wisconsin remember

By Linda Waggener

The Bird Sisters, a novel by Rebecca Rasmussen, spans the long, interesting lives of two Wisconsin women and, among many special moments, has the following descriptive note on aging that I thought worth sharing.

This comes from the pondering of sister Millie who "... didn't quite know when what had happened to her body had happened. The sagging skin beneath her knees told one story, the liver spots on her hands told another.

Ohio reader discovers Columbia author Albert Wyckoff's books

Related: Adair County authors: Albert C. Wyckoff, by Mike Watson, contains a comprehensive list of the books written by Rev. Albert Capwell Wyckoff

Scott Brenneman writes:
I found a couple of Mercer Boy's books in my Dadís book collection. I do not know how he came about these, but I have really enjoyed them and have added a couple of the Mystery Hunters books to my collection. These books are well written and I really feel I am there inside the stories. Wish authors today would put out suitable books like these for youth. Sincerely, Scott Brenneman, Mount Vernon OH
Thanks, Scott, for writing. Adair County is proud of having been the home of Rev. Wyckoff for many years. Though he did not write any of the Mercer Boys works in Columbia, he continue his authorship here while pastor of the Columbia Presbyterian Church, and the Union Presbyterian Church (in a sanctuary now the home of Living by Faith Church). He and his wife are buried in the Columbia Cemetery.

Dave Rosenbaum: Quick review, Westward into Kentucky

Enjoyed Adair Countian Chester Raymond Young's book

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
Just read Westward Into Kentucky edited by Chester Raymond Young. Very familiar names were there when Columbia was formed: Walker, Caldwell, Haskins, Antle, Waggener, Conover, Burbridge, Montgomery and so many others. I had not read it before and enjoyed it very much. - Dave Rosenbaum

Thanks: Mr. Young was a hero for those of us who thought writing a book was about as significant an accomplishment as there could be. Before he edited "Westward Into Kentucky," and after, he would most often attend the Columbia Baptist Church when he was in town, and was always recognized from the pulpit and sometimes spoke himself. Thanks for the reminder. Don't know genealogy very well, and wonder if Chester Young would be a kinsman of another favorite author, Garnett Young, who wrote "The Briar Domain."- EW

Banned Books week speaks to freedom of reading choices

September 25-October 1, 2016
Click on headline for item with photos from observance

The annual celebration of the freedom to read anything of one's choice was held last week in the Katie Murrell Library at Lindsey Wilson College.

More than 11,000 books have been challenged since 1982 by some who would have them removed from print according to the American Library Association. Among those challenged include the Holy Bible and the Koran. The celebration of books and the freedom to read what one chooses to read was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in bookstores and libraries.
