A sample from Marion Public Library’s Local History Room The American Book of Days 4th Edition By the H.W. Wilson Company, 2000 Of course we know winter begins on December 21st, Christmas Eve & Day are the 24th & 25th and New Year's Day is December 31st. But do you know what other significant events and happenings have taken place on those days? # staffpicks Kim H. enjoyed this page-turning thriller about strangers at a spa resort that may not be as restful as it initially seems. Katie recommends this book about friends whose videos of art works go viral, and the unexpected things that happen after. Gary Butler liked this book about a man who unknowingly creates personalities with skills that can save the day in dire situations. James recommends this biography of six females who became pharaohs, and the lives and power that they had in ancient Egypt.
