May Clues and explanations:
Maya Angelou: (April 4, 1928-May 28, 2014) This month marks one year since the death of this iconic and influential woman. She produced numerous books including memoirs, poetry, and cookbooks. Check out http://www.mayaangelou.com/caged-bird-songs/ to hear some of her poetry set to a hip-hop beat. For the Challenge, read any book by or about Ms. Angelou.
Horses: Read any book that has the word horse in the title, has a horse on the cover of the book, or is about horses. And don’t forget to watch the race for the roses on Saturday, May 2, 2015 to get you in the mood.
Other Religion: Read any book that is about a religion that is not one you were born into or practice today.
May Author: Read a book by any author born in the month of May. Some choices to get you started are Jodi Picoult, Jeffrey Deaver, Martha Grimes, or Tony Hillerman.
And the two new clues for this month are:
Color-The title of the book you read for this clue must contain a color.
Mystery - The second additional clue for May will come from the map of the library you received when you signed up for the challenge. We have put up graphics on the shelves to match the map and make it easier for you to find these areas in the library.
The area you are looking for is #8 on the map-Mystery Cay. You must read a book that comes from this section of the library. One way to know a book works for the challenge is if it has a Mystery sticker on the spine. These clues will be added to the Suggested Reading Guide on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.
Remember you are looking for these decals; (1) will be on the end caps of the shelves and (2) will be on the spines of the book.
