This is Jessi Wakefield with the Sioux City Public Library and you are listening to Check it Out. Today I would like to recommend the Disney produced movie, The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Casey Affleck. This movie is based off of true events of what is still considered today the most daring sea rescue ever attempted by the United States Coast Guard. It is the story of heroism, sacrifice, and love for your fellow man. In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years.

You got to love Carry A. Nation, a woman who listened when the Lord God almighty told her to uphold the law in Kansas and bring to an glorious end the miserable indecency of those who pedaled booze in utter disregard of the law.

Jennifer Hart, and her trusty interns Niccole Wolken and Jessica Higgins come to the studio to talk about the Food Bank of Siouxland's upcoming Leader of the Pack: Hunger Games Run-Walk-Bike event.

This is Jessi Wakefield with the Sioux City Public Library and you are listening to Check It Out. In 2014, Andy Weir came out with his debut novel, The Martian. It quickly and rightfully was lauded as a breakthrough and immediately became a favorite of many, including me. So the moment his second novel dropped, I quickly grabbed it and hoped to enjoy it even a fraction as much as I did his first. Today, I would like to recommend that second novel by Andy Weir, Artemis. I feel I need to say this first. This is not The Martian Volume 2.
