Read a summary (under details) and check availability in KIS library catalog.

Your competent child by Jesper Juul

One of the best books of parenting (in my personal opinion), but quite challenging. I dare every parent to read it!
Is it available?
Usha K R recently visited KIS for the annual writers workshop. The library then acquired 2 of her novels, The Chosen and A Girl and a River. We got to tape Usha talking briefly about her authorship. Watch it below.

The Broken Window by Jeffrey Deaver

Watch an interview with author Jeffery Deaver about how he goes about when writing a book. Quite interesting! The Broken Window is actually the latest in a series of novels about the quadriplegic homicide detective Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs. Maybe someone has watched the film with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie that was made out of the first one, The Bone Collector. Unfortunately we don't have any of the earlier Lincoln Rhyme novels in the library, but this book works quite well for itself.

I tried to embed this video, but for some reason it didn't work. You'll have to click on the link!
