I've always been taken on an interesting journey exploring the terrain of Japanese novels.
Japanese authors offer an array of characters reaching from the subtle layers mist to an ocean of depth and current in character development, so much so the characters become imprinted into our imagination.

The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series presents Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters, on Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m. at Schlessman.
Eleanor Brown's debut novel, The Weird Sisters, is the story of the Andreas family, whose motto might as well be "There's no problem a library card can't solve." When Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia (named after Shakespeare heroines by their professor father) return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, they love each other. They just don't happen to like each other very much.
In May we will be celebrating two major milestones in Denver Public Library's history — the groundbreaking for the new branch library at Stapleton and the completed renovations of the Central Library.
I often find myself explaining how the Library has managed to renovate many of our locations, open a new branch at Green Valley Ranch, and plans to build two more branches in Stapleton and in West Denver as we are facing the possibility of closing branches to meet our 2012 budget reduction target.
