New Books Available at the Library

Two new books are now available at the Manistee County Library thanks to the Women’s netWork and two authors who spoke in Manistee recently. “The One Decision” by Judith Wright and “Bold Spirit” by Linda Hunt have been added to the Women’s netWork section of the library.
Judith Wright spoke at the April netWork luncheon that was attended by 142 women in the area. According to Wright, making the One Decision and choosing a life of MORE—purpose, fulfillment, satisfaction, love, career, and worldly success—is a definitive act, one that will separate your life into the time before and the time after. Your One Decision leads you to be the very best you can possibly be. Have the sense that your life counts—a life of more of everything you desire.
“She was very inspirational and a number of women purchased her book at the luncheon,” said Judy Ouvry, a co-founder of the netWork. “And Judith has invited local women to attend a training at the Wright Institute in Chicago in August. More information about that can be found on her web site” (judithwright.com).
Linda Hunt was a speaker during last week’s Celebrating Women Festival. She donated a copy of her book, “Bold Spirit, Helga Estby’s Forgotten Walk Across Victorian America”.
Desperate. Determined. Unwaveringly confident. In 1896, a Norwegian immigrant named Helga Estby dares to cross 3500 miles of the American continent to win a $10,000 wager. On Foot. BOLD SPIRIT: Helga Estby’s Forgotten Walk across Victorian America introduces readers to this fascinating journey of an audacious act of courage and love of a mother trying to save a family farm.
The Women’s netWork section of the library was started with a collection of over 50 books donated by area women in December 2005 through the Women’s netWork.
