Monday Fun Day! (11/14/2011 Edition)

Happy Monday, librarian friends!

- School Library Journal highlighted ACROSS MANY MOUNTAINS in their Adult Books 4 Teens section. They said,

"The author illuminates the lives of refugees, for whom safety in India is coupled with poverty and hard work, as well as on-going efforts to bring the Tibetan cause to the attention of world leaders. This book will appeal to teens interested in Tibetan Buddhism, as well as student activists interested in the Free Tibet movement."
