HBN LIBRARY PICK OF THE WEEK
This week we’ve chosen The Rise and Fall of Becky Sharp by Sarra Manning, a hilarious contemporary retelling of the classic society novel, Vanity Fair, featuring the irrepressible Becky Sharp. Beautiful, brilliant, ruthless – nothing can stop Becky Sharp.
Becky Sharp has big dreams and no connections. Determined to swap the gutters of Soho for the glamorous, exclusive world behind the velvet rope, Becky will do anything to achieve fame, riches and status.
Whether it’s seducing society’s most eligible bachelors, or befriending silly debutantes and rich old ladies, Becky Sharp is destined for great things. Because it might be tough at the top but it’s worse at the bottom.
From London to Paris and beyond, Becky Sharp is going places – so get the hell out of her way…
We have a copy of The Rise of Fall of Becky Sharp available to borrow from the library. This week’s pick is sponsored by Oshin the library mascot! ...

Our Free Little Library is so popular! We’re so happy to see people enjoying it so much. 📚😀
To help us keep up with demand, if you have any old books you no longer read, we would love it if you could donate them to the FLL. You can access it at any time in the Tot Lot at Noble’s Park.
Thank you! 😀 ...
