The Sun Does Shine | Global Newsstream


This week we added two children’s books to our collection, thanks to a donation from Salli Lou Anderson.  Thank you, Salli Lou! Your help and patronage is always appreciated.

One of the new books, Goodnight, Numbers, by Danica McKellar, is a counting book written to reinforce number-knowledge in young children.  With soft, dreamy watercolor illustrations, this book also includes on its title pages ten different ways to express the numbers 1-10, including French, Spanish, German, and Chinese!


Another book recently added to our collection is the true-life memoir,  The Sun Does Shine, by Anthony Ray Hinton, with Lara Love Hardin.  

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama.  Stunned, confused, and only twenty-nine years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free.  

But it was not to be- and for twenty-seven years, Hinton languished on Death Row.  But after the first shock of despair and anger, Hinton found a way to not only survive, but live in his desperate circumstances.  A beacon of hope to the other inmates, Hinton formed touched lives friendships he had never expected to make, until he finally won his release in 2015.

According to Kirkus Reviews, this book is “A heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful story about truth, justice, and the need for criminal justice reform.”
