Several co-workers here at the library encouraged me to read Sparrow Migrations by Traverse City author, Cari Noga; the author is coming here to give a talk and the novel features an autistic character, and my co-workers all know I am put more holds on books about autism than anyone else who works here. Truth be told, I don't always like autism books, but I liked this book. Sparrow Migrations is a book about people in general and just happens to include amongst the many strong characters in this novel one who has autism. There are three main story lines that are connected by all started at the same time and place as the "Miracle on the Hudson" emergency plane landing, back in late 2009. None of the characters are hurt in the crash, but each of their lives, like the plane, changes course.
Cari Noga will be here for an informal book discussion on Monday, July 14 at 6:30 in the Community Room. Local musician Michael Waite will also be on hand, performing acoustic music.
