From time to time, when we get a collection of related books into the library we like to share a list on a particular topic, but lately we’ve had some books  come in that are too good not to share, even if they don’t fit with a particular theme. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.

No One Tells You This by Glynnis Macnicol, Call Number: 306.7 M169n
NOTE: “If the story doesn’t end with marriage or a child, what then? This question plagued Glynnis MacNicol on the eve of her 40th birthday. Despite a successful career as a writer, and an exciting life in New York City, Glynnis was constantly reminded she had neither of the things the world expected of a woman her age: a partner or a baby. She knew she was supposed to feel bad about this. After all, single women and those without children are often seen as objects of pity, relegated to the sidelines, or indulgent spoiled creatures who think only of themselves. Glynnis refused to be cast into either of those roles and yet the question remained: What now?There was no good blueprint for how to be a woman alone in the world. She concluded it was time to create one.”
