Take A Page – Dorie Gebhard

Every other week, we share what our patrons are reading with the Omaha World-Herald. This week, W. Dale Clark Main Library patron Dorie Gebhard recommends five of her favorite reads:
Dorie Gebhard

  1. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith: A young girl never loses hope despite an impoverished childhood.
  2. The Language of Flowers” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh: Through flowers, a girl in foster care finds meaningful ways to connect with others.
  3. A Lucky Child” by Thomas Buergenthal: The profound lessons Buergenthal gained from suffering  the Holocaust’s cruelties as a young child.
  4. The Diary of Mattie Spenser” by Sandra Dallas: A pioneer woman’s journal (fictional but apparently fact-based) – joyful yet heartbreaking, always  truthful.
  5. Gone With the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell: I’ve read this classic three times. While entertaining, it’s also a powerful story about sacrifices made by individuals in the Civil War’s aftermath.
