    Let’s talk about children’s books this month.

    A picture book for the little ones in your life is Happy St.

    Patrick’s Day by Aimée Chapman, Penny Worms, and Kylie

    Hamley with illustrations by Nanette Regan. It will intro-

    duce children to the world of legends and faerie folk with

    shiny objects they can touch imbedded in the book. What

    does happen when you find a leprechaun?

    For the eight-11 year-olds is the fantasy The Storm

    Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle. The island of

    Arronmore chooses a new Storm Keeper each generation to

    command its power and protect its magic. Fionn’s grandfa-

    ther has held the job for many years, but he is ready to hand

    it off to another. Who among the island’s most powerful

    families will take over and hold off the dark magic that

    threatens their lives?

    Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan is Book

    1 of the Wild Magic Trilogy fantasy series. Aimed at 11-13

    year-olds, this book tells the story of raggedy witches who

    carry off Mup’s father on the night their Aunty dies. Mup

    and her mother and her little brother enter the world of

    magic to save him from the evil witch who enforces her laws

    with terror and cruelty.

    Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch offers teens a story

    about Addie, a broken-hearted 16 year-old girl, and her

    brother Ian. They arrive in Ireland for their aunt’s destina-

    tion wedding and tour the countryside, making unscheduled

    stops and attending a major music festival. As well as work-

    ing on healing her heartbreak, she also must heal the frac-

    tured relationship between her and Ian. For more reading suggestions, check out padraicpearse-

    Our 41st Club Anniversary Party and Dance was another

    where our annual Club trip would be taking us this year.

    When the announcement was made that we would be head-

    ing to the Hudson Valley, New York, and the Tara Mansion

    from “Gone with the Wind”, the trip was filled immediate-

    ly, as people hurriedly wrote out their deposit checks and

    registration forms! Margie Drew was the lucky member to
