THE LAKE AND THE LOST GIRL by Jacquelyn Vincenta
The Lake and the Lost Girl tells the riveting story of secrets from the past unraveling one family from the inside out, and two women, separated by 60 years of history, determined to pursue their dreams. The author began her writing career as a police beat reporter in Louisiana and later founded and managed a publishing company, specializing in international trade publications. Today, from her Kalamazoo home, she writes fiction and non-fiction, reads a wide variety of literature, spends time on local Earth-care projects, and volunteers at Michigan lighthouses.
Reservations can be made through the information help desk number (616-784-2007) at the main branch or at kdl.org. The cost is $10:00 for members, $12:00 for non-members and $5.00 to just listen to the author speak. A box lunch is included in the cost.
The author and book are still to be determined.
Book discussions are held at 10:00 am on the third Monday of the month in the Wisner Center at the Cascade Library. We encourage attendees to read ahead of the schedule if possible since some titles may be in short supply near the discussion date.

This 3D computer-animated comedy is the sequel to the 2016 hit The Secret Life of Pets. It features the voices of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Dana Carvey, Ellie Kemper, Harrison Ford and others. This new chapter in the life of terrier Max humorously explores the emotional lives of pets, the deep bond between them and the still unanswered question, "What are your pets really doing when you're not at home?" (Rated PG for some action and rude humor.)
