oh she glowsThe Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon

A self-trained chef and food photographer, Angela Liddon has spent years perfecting the art of plant-based cooking, creating inventive and delicious recipes that have brought her devoted fans from all over the world. After struggling for a decade with an eating disorder, Angela vowed to change her diet and her life, once and for all. She traded low-calorie, processed food for nourishing vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, and more. The result? Her energy soared, she healed her relationship with food, and she got her glow back, both inside and out. Eager to share her realization that the food we put into our bodies has a huge impact on how we look and feel each day, Angela started a blog, Oh She Glows, which is now an internet sensation and one of the most popular vegan recipe blogs on the web. Published in 2014, Angela’s bestselling The Oh She Glows Cookbook: vegan recipes to glow from the inside out, contains a treasure trove of more than one hundred mouthwatering, wholesome recipes. The Oh She Glows Cookbook is one of the top circulating nonfiction books in Haliburton’s library system and can be requested through any of the eight library branches in the county or through the library website www.haliburtonlibrary.ca.

Eulogy by Ken Murray

In Eulogy by Ken Murray, William Oakes is a reclusive paper conservator who has secluded himself away from his overbearing mother, obsessive compulsive father, and the painful memories of his upbringing. But when calamity strikes his parents, William is forced to confront the memories of his past, a heady mix of unrealized ambition, estrangement, self-delusion, and fundamentalist religion, all while working on the most important artifact of his career, a rare book of the dead set to go on exhibit at a major museum. Starting with a eulogy, William unpacks the pain he carries with him, both inherited and self-inflicted in the effort to release the burden his parents have left with him.
