What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

By Mike Selby

The outrageous behaviour of Winston’s Churchill’s American mother is explored in Stephanie Barron’s ‘That Churchill Woman.’

A sixteen-year-old girl pours all of her anger into her first attempt at a rap song in ‘On The Come Up’ by Angie Thomas.
