Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank's son chooses a different option: against the old man's wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and somewhat heartbreaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places. Please call or come into the Library to learn the title of this film: 765-743-2261.

Nick's Picks on WBAA

Nick on WBAACHOICES by M A Smith

The traditional story about a young hotshot forced into a life-altering change of attitude gets flipped on its head in Choices. Author M. A. Smith sets main character Ethan in her native southern California, where the lawyer falls from grace after a horrific car accident. Dropping cases of the rich and famous and instead approaching despised pro bono work gives Ethan a surprising perspective on the world he never cared for. The huge twist at the end is sure to grip readers as well - but don't read the last chapter first!  West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review
