Summary from OWWL.ORG
Stewart O’Nan has been called “the bard of the working class” and has now crafted a frank and funny yet emotionally resonant tale set within a vivid workaday world seldom seen in contemporary fiction. Perched in the far corner of a run-down New England mall, The Red Lobster hasn’t been making its numbers and headquarters has pulled the plug. But manager Manny DeLeon still needs to navigate a tricky last shift. With only four shopping days left until Christmas, Manny must convince his near-mutinous staff to hunker down and serve the final onslaught of hungry retirees, lunatics, and holiday office parties. All the while, he’s wondering how to handle the waitress he’s still in love with, his pregnant girlfriend at home, and the perfect present he still needs to buy. Last Night at the Lobsteris a poignant yet redemptive look at what a man does when he discovers that his best might not be good enough.

Ongoing: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

We’re joining the National “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” Campaign. It’s fun, free, and helps to build a lifelong love of books. If you read just 1 book a day to your child for 3 years, that equals 1,095 books! You can count the same book multiple times, count books read in storytime, at daycare…anywhere! This program also pairs with Project Read. You can participate in both programs with one easy calendar! Pick up a new calendar every month. Visit the library anytime to register & learn more! Join the WPL “Road to Reading” with milestone prizes along the way!
