Our #BookTuesday pick for August 22 is #NotASound by @heathergudenkauf.

When a tragic accident leaves nurse Amelia Winn #deaf, she spirals into a depression that ultimately causes her to lose everything that matters—her job, her husband, and her stepdaughter. Now, two years later and with the help of her hearing dog, Stitch, she is finally getting back on her feet. But when she discovers the body of a fellow nurse in the dense bush by the river, deep in the woods near her cabin, she is plunged into a disturbing #mystery that could shatter the carefully reconstructed pieces of her life all over again.

#NewYorkTimes-bestselling #author #HeatherGudenkauf introduces her most compelling heroine yet, and delivers a taut and emotional #thriller that proves she's at the top of her class. Grab a copy today! #bookrecommendation #bookrec

Kuiper Kat's Astronomy was on hand for the Great American Eclipse: 2017! We were at @queenslibrary's Poppenhusen Branch in College Point, NY. Free eclipse glasses were provided by Poppenhusen Library, the folks at SolarActivity, and #DaystarFilters.
Big thanks to Poppenhusen Library for having me out; it was a privilege to work with you. My love of astronomy started with my local library, and I hope to be able to share that same love with others. Thanks to @celestronuniverse for the #EclipSmart line of products that made viewing easy, and a special thanks to everyone who took the time to join us for this amazing event. Keep looking up!

This was the scene at the #queenslibrary in #sunnyside as people from the neighborhood came out to view the #solareclipse. There was a great vibe in the air as people shared glasses and homemade cereal box #pinhole projectors to view the event. Such a great way to meet neighbors, chat and share a unique event together. Thank you to the Queens Library for handing out glasses! 😎🤙🙏
