Share your love of mysteries with other readers!  Our Mystery Tuesdays Book Club meets the first Tuesday of each month, and is led by Monica D'Antonio.

In his wickedly brilliant first novel, Debut Dagger Award winner Alan Bradley introduces one of the most singular and engaging heroines in recent fiction: eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison. An enthralling mystery, a piercing depiction of class and society, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is a masterfully told tale of deceptions—and a rich literary delight. - (Random House, Inc.)

Our very own Mary carefully selects a film for your viewing pleasure! Always new, always entertaining!  

Today's free matinee is "Wild Oats," starring Shirley Maclaine, Jessica Lange, Demi Moore and Billy Connelly.

Eva, a widow and retired history teacher, enjoys a quiet life. Everything changes when she receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for $5,000,000 instead of the expected $50,000. At the not-so-gentle urging of her best friend Maddie, Eva deposits the money and the two friends head to the Canary Islands with every intention of living it up. But their fantasy is short-lived when they discover that they have become media sensations overnight.  --Midwest Tape

Join us for an engaging discussion of great literature!   

This month’s classic is “Catch 22," by Joseph Heller. 

At the heart of Catch-22 resides the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war.

His problem is Colonel Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions that he's committed to flying, he's trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions, the very act of making the request proves that he's sane and therefore, ineligible to be relieved. -- Goodreads.com

Our March Saturday Book Club selection is “The Sense of an Ending,” by Julian Barnes.  

Embarking on his retirement after an amicable divorce, Tony Webster is forced to confront his long-forgotten past in the form of living and dead childhood friends when a mysterious legacy compels a reevaluation of things he thought he understood. By the award-winning author of Arthur & George. - (Baker & Taylor)

Our club has been meeting continually since 2001, but we always welcome new members!  Dr. Harold Halbert will lead the discussion.

Coinciding with the centenary of America’s involvement with the war, World War I and American Art will be the first major exhibition devoted to exploring the ways in which American artists reacted to the First World War.  

The war’s impact on art and culture was enormous, as nearly all of the era’s major American artists interpreted their experiences, opinions and perceptions of the conflict through their work. 

This lecture will explore PAFA’s exhibition themes and images as well as discuss the artists who chronicled their experiences of the unfolding war as it crept closer to home and then involved them directly as soldiers, relief workers, political dissenters, and official war artists.

Presented by Laurel McLaughlin, Curatorial Assistant on the Exhibition.


Please register online, by phone (215-885-5180 ext. 13), at the information desk or by email (Askabington@gmail.com)

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

Skewed - the book by Larry AtkinsRegister for this FREE program online here, in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org 

In a media landscape dominated by advocacy news networks pushing competing points of view, how can the average person uncover the truth about any particular issue? Skewed will show you how to separate the facts from the agenda-driven spin and selective presentation often used by such news sources as Fox and MSNBC.

The author describes the goals of advocacy journalism — i.e., journalism that transparently advocates a biased worldview — and shows that it has been a part of our history since the 1700s. He assesses the role of talk radio, cable news networks, and the more recent phenomena of special-interest blogs, websites, and citizen journalists in creating the current media climate.

Media Direction PostWhile conceding that advocacy journalism is undoubtedly popular and has some positive aspects, the author also points out its many negative features. Perhaps the most important of these is its polarizing effect on society. 

Skewed will give readers the tools to critique the media, to see both sides of any issue, and to become better informed citizens and voters.

Larry Atkins is a journalist, a lawyer, and a university journalism professor. He is an adjunct professor of journalism at Temple University, Arcadia University, and Montgomery County Community College. He has written more than four hundred articles, op-eds, and essays for many publications, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Baltimore Sun, the Chicago Tribune, the Christian Science Monitor, the Plain Dealer (Cleveland), the Dallas Morning News, the Detroit News, Huffingtonpost.com, the Los Angeles Daily News, Newsday, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Washington Post, and many others. He has been interviewed by many media outlets, including National Public Radio. He is the author of Larry the Liberal Lawyer Lashes Out and contributed a chapter to The ASJA Guide to Freelance Writing.

A probing critique of advocacy journalism, particularly its polarizing effect on society and politics, with reader guidelines for objectively evaluating news sources.

“It’s not surprising that as a media literacy advocate I believe Skewed is an essential read. With the information overload we experience daily, there has never been a more important time to reflect on bias, polarization, and objectivity in journalism. Skewed takes us on a deep dive into these issues, which are vital to our democracy today. It asks important questions and makes us think about the news we consume and create. I hope this book sparks conversation in every classroom in the United States.” 
— MICHELLE CIULLA LIPKIN, executive director, National Association for Media Literacy Education

“Skewed is packed with practical information, deep insights, and Larry Atkins’s grounded common sense. Highly recommended!” 
— JONATHAN MABERRY, New York Times–bestselling author of Patient Zero and Kill Switch

misc_lincoln The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.
