lib_book_pencil 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Thursday Morning Book DiscussionThe Plot Against America by Philip Roth (Rm 4/5) Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Staff   732-431-7220 Ext 722   
   

"What if" scenarios are often suspect. They are sometimes thinly veiled tales of the gospel according to the author, taking on the claustrophobic air of a personal fantasia that can't be shared. Such is not the case with Philip Roth's tour de force, The Plot Against America. It is a credible, fully-realized picture of what could happen anywhere, at any time, if the right people and circumstances come together.

The Plot Against America explores a wholly imagined thesis and sees it through to the end: Charles A. Lindbergh defeats FDR for the Presidency in 1940. Lindbergh, the "Lone Eagle," captured the country's imagination by his solo Atlantic crossing in 1927 in the monoplane, Spirit of St. Louis, then had the country's sympathy upon the kidnapping and murder of his young son. He was a true American hero: brave, modest, handsome, a patriot. According to some reliable sources, he was also a rabid isolationist, Nazi sympathizer, and a crypto-fascist. It is these latter attributes of Lindbergh that inform the novel.

A Lecture and Discussion by Rev. Karen E Herrick, PhD

Sixty-six percent of widows experience apparitions of their departed husbands within the first year of death and seventy-five percent of parents who lose a child have this experience also during the first year of their loss. Many are afraid to tell about this for fear of mental instability.

A presentation on Near-Death Experiences will be given from the work of Dr. R. Moody and PMH Atwater. The main differences between a spiritual experience (SE) and a psychotic hallucination will be taught. After the educational presentation, attendees may ask questions and discuss their personal experiences.

Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, has shared her clinical experience for 30 years from a Jungian perspective. She was ordained in the Interfaith Ministry in 1995. This ministry is to be actively involved in Spiritual Psychology, specifically in naming SEs and working with chronic grief. It is important to note that 40-50% of people in the United States are having these types of experiences that people are afraid to mention. 

Space is limited; please Register to reserve a seat

One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus

One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial "Brides for Indians" program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man's world.  Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime.  Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.

    Contact:    732-431-5656   
   

As England becomes enmeshed in the early days of World War II and the men are away fighting, the women of Chilbury village forge an uncommon bond. They defy the Vicar’s stuffy edict to close the choir and instead “carry on singing,” resurrecting themselves as the Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. We come to know the home-front struggles of five unforgettable choir members: a timid widow devastated when her only son goes to fight; the older daughter of a local scion drawn to a mysterious artist; her younger sister pining over an impossible crush; a Jewish refugee from Czechoslovakia hiding a family secret; and a conniving midwife plotting to outrun her seedy past.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Controversial, honest, entertaining, and politically incorrect, Hesh Goldstein, author of A Sane Diet for an Insane World, will educate you on the ills of eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) and the perils of the food industry, and show you how to live longer and feel energized by the foods you eat.  A Sane Diet For An Insane World addresses proper nutrition and good health versus improper nutrition and poor health. What is proper, what is improper, and why, is the issue.  Mr Goldstein has a 'tell it like it is' approach, and discusses the link between diet and disease, and the motivation of money in the food industry. 

Hesh Goldstein is the host of the "Health Talk" Radio Program, K108AM Honolulu.  He says, "Doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries, and government agencies.  This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me realize how broken our health system is.  The book....will hopefully inspire you to make changes."

Monmouth County's Own “Hidden Figures”: Fort Monmouth Once Touted as the 'Black Brain Center' of the U.S. - A lecture by Melissa Ziobro

According to African American engineer William Jones, from an oral history interview in 1993, the Signal Corps at Fort Monmouth offered unique opportunities for minorities in the 1940s and 1950s.  African American electrical engineer and retired SES Thomas E. Daniels, who worked at the base for thirty-five years, concurred with this sentiment.  He stated, “Fort Monmouth was known as the Black Brain Center of the U.S.” Daniels affirmed that the post “provided a place where black scientists and engineers could finds jobs and advance their careers,” while other research facilities closed their doors to African Americans.

These employment opportunities did not inoculate the Fort’s African American employees from the culture of discrimination and segregation that marked this period in our country’s history, however.   Join us for this multimedia presentation, as we explore the experiences of some of Monmouth County's own "Hidden Figures."

Melissa Ziobro is currently the Specialist Professor of Public History at Monmouth University, teaching courses to include Introduction to Public History, Oral History and Museums and Archives Management.  Her service to the University includes administration of teh Monmouth Memories Oral History Program.

Melissa serves on the Executive Board of Oral History in the Mid-Atlantic Region and as the editor for New Jersey Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal, a joint venture of the NJ Historical Commission, Rutgers University Libraries, and Monmouth University.  She worked as a command historian at the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command, Fort Monmouth, NJ from 2004-2011.  Publications include her most recent article, on Colonel William Blair, father of American Aircraft Detection Radar, in On Point: The Journal of Army History.

As England becomes enmeshed in the early days of World War II and the men are away fighting, the women of Chilbury village forge an uncommon bond. They defy the Vicar’s stuffy edict to close the choir and instead “carry on singing,” resurrecting themselves as the Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. We come to know the home-front struggles of five unforgettable choir members: a timid widow devastated when her only son goes to fight; the older daughter of a local scion drawn to a mysterious artist; her younger sister pining over an impossible crush; a Jewish refugee from Czechoslovakia hiding a family secret; and a conniving midwife plotting to outrun her seedy past.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

Special Documentary Film Screening

Just after the Great Depression, young college educated African-Americans found themselves unemployed and unemployable because of racial barriers. As the U.S. geared up for war in Europe, efforts were made to aggressively recruit and place Blacks in the military and in civilian service corps. Despite efforts that hindered acceptance, promotion, and recognition of their accomplishments, African-Americans made major contributions to the technological success of WWII.

'No Short Climb' combines personal memoir with archival footage, still photography, and graphics, to present a first-hand account of this previously unknown story about the contributions of African-American scientists and technicians.  Written, produced and directed by Robert Johnson, Jr.

    Contact:    732-431-7220 Ext 722   
   

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund is exactly the kind of book you want to curl up with in the winter. It’s propulsive, vividly written, laced with a razor’s chill and filled with imagery that’s impossible to forget. There is a constant sense of foreboding, of wondering when the truth will crash through the Minnesota ice. Linda is a loner, a teenage girl who walks to school and lives on a failed commune in the woods. But her life of solitude cracks open when her history teacher—whom she fantasizes about—is charged with child pornography. Outside of school, Linda begins to spend time with a young boy and his mother who moved into a house across the lake, but their family, like her teacher, are not as they appear. Fridlund masterfully ratchets up the tension, exploding this story of secrets and girlhood with crisp, cutting prose that will leave you shocked and in awe. A remarkable novel, that just so happens to be a debut, by a fiercely talented writer. --Al Woodworth, The Amazon Book Review

    Contact:    732-431-7220 X7222   
   

Author.Dr. Jeffrey Sammons and co-author John H. Morrow, Jr. have written the book that is the definitive study of the 369th. Though discussed in numerous histories and featured in popular culture (most famously the film Stormy Weather and the novel Jazz), the 369th has become more a matter of mythology than accurate history. Their book tells the full story of the self-proclaimed Harlem Rattlers also popular known as the Harlem Hellfighters. Combining the "fighting focus" of military history with the insights of social commentary, Harlem's Rattlers and the Great War reveals the centrality of military service and war to the quest for equality as it details the origins, evolution, combat exploits, and postwar struggles of the 369th.

Jeffrey T. Sammons is professor in the Department of History at New York University and the author of Beyond the Ring: The Role of Boxing in American Society.  Dr. Sammons earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Rutgers College in 1971. He received his Master's degree in history from Tufts University with his Master's degree in history and earned his  Ph.D. in American History from the University of North Carolina.

On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder

Join us for the first meeting of our new History Book Discussion.  At the first meeting we will be discussing On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder.  

The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism.  Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience.  Timothy Snyder addresses these threats in this New York Times bestseller.

This Book Discussion is moderated by Paul Zigo of the World War II Era Studies Institute.

Limited copies are available at the Circulation Desk.

Did you know?

  • In 2016, nearly 61 million Americans received approximately $918 billion in Social Security benefits.
  • You can begin drawing reduced Social Security as early as age 62. For every year you delay after reaching full retirement age (FRA), up to age 70, the monthly benefit increases—by a generous 8% per year.
  • For the average (middle to upper-middle class) couple, Social Security, in fact, makes up 20%–50% of their retirement income.

Planning for Social Security earlier will deliver better benefits. You have been paying into Social Security your entire life. Wouldn’t you want to receive the maximum back?  Each year, as part of their commitment to educating the community, Damian Sylvia and Michael Standley provide sound Social Security advice and strategic road maps to hundreds of individuals and couples—who are either nearing age 62 or full retirement age (FRA).

My Father’s Paradise: A  Son’s Search for His Family’s Past by Ariel Sabar
In a remote corner of the world, forgotten for nearly three thousand years, lived an enclave of Kurdish Jews so isolated that they still spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus. To these descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, Yona Sabar was born.  Yona's son Ariel grew up in Los Angeles, where Yona had become an esteemed professor. Ariel wanted nothing to do with his father's strange immigrant heritage-until he had a son of his own. Ariel Sabar brings to life the ancient town of Zakho, discovering his family's place in the sweeping saga of Middle-Eastern history. This powerful book is an improbable story of tolerance and hope set in what today is the very center of the world's attention.
