This month's selection is The Road to Character by David Brooks.

 

“The road to exceptional character may be unpaved and a bit rocky, yet it is still worth the struggle. This is the basic thesis of Brooks’s engrossing treatise on personal morality in today’s materialistic, proud world. . . .[His] poignant and at times quite humorous commentary on the importance of humility and virtue makes for a vital, uplifting read.”(Booklist )

Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.

*There is no longer any need to confirm your attendance by calling the reference desk ahead of time.

*Please be considerate of your fellow artists.  If you are registered, but are unable to attend for any reason, please call the reference desk as soon as you know so that someone from the waitlist may attend. You cannot send someone in your place.  

*These classes are specially funded by the Friends of the Library. If we find that classes are not full on a regular basis because people are registering but not attending, we will have to reconsider offering them. Please be sure to come if you are registered.

Markham's true life was incredibly adventurous, and it's easy for readers to identify with this woman who refused to be pigeonholed by her gender.”  (Library Journal)

For Katey Kontent and Eve Ross, two working gals out on the town, a chance encounter with patrician banker Tinker Grey sets into motion a series of events causing far-reaching consequences.”(Booklist)
