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

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.

Speaker, Betsy Nutt, is a Penn State Master Gardener volunteer. She lives on a small farm where she and her husband have raised sheep for 30 years. They grow and freeze all their vegetables for the year. Their gardens also include fruits, berries and perennial flowers.


All of the presenters are Master Gardener Volunteers from the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension.  Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by the Penn State Cooperative Extension.

Once they complete their training, Master Gardeners help the Extension better serve the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, working with 4-H horticultural projects, participating in civic beautification, maintaining demonstration gardens, teaching plant sciences and horticulture, maintaining this web site, and in many other ways.

Master Gardeners are willing and able to educate individuals and groups in gardening topics such as plant selection, composting, soil improvement, 
pest control, vegetable and flower gardening, pruning, and more.

Explore a new mystery and share your love of the genre with other readers!

The Mystery Tuesdays Book Club meets the first Tuesday of each month, and is led by Monica D'Antonio.

This month's book is “Two-faced," by local author Elena Santangelo. 

Gen Ziegler left her home in tiny Mount Ebal, Pennsylvania right after college, to get as far away from her mirror-image twin, Sara, and their dysfunctional relationship as possible. Now, five years later, Dr. Ziegler teaches at the University of Arizona and assists the Tucson Police as a forensic psychologist. Yet, all her life Gen's had clairvoyant flashes, telling her when Sara was in danger. One new vision is so vivid, Gen flies home to find that her sister is the primary witness and suspect in a grisly stabbing death. The last person Sara wants around is Gen, but if the real killer isn't found, one or both sisters will become victims themselves. - (Booksurge)

Copies of the book are available at the Front Desk.  We encourage registration. Call or drop by the Front Desk to register.

Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

On certain Monday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following."

Hidden Figures

Sept. 6, 2017 Hidden Figures: Motion Picture

“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.” - (Alert)


 Killers of the Flower Moon

Oct. 11 - Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


Fun Home

 Nov. 8 - Fun home : a family tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel’s sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, it’s a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.

 


The Invisible Bridge

 March (date TBD) - The Invisible Bridge, by Julie Orringer

Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter’s recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his—and his family’s—history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


News of the World

 April (date TBD) - News of the world : a novel, by Paulette Jiles 

Kidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn’t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10-year-old to her family for a $50 gold piece. Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together. Capt. Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople (hence the title) and tries to “civilize” Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types... 
- School Library Journal


H is for Hawk

 May (date TBD) - H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald

An award-winning best-seller from the UK recounts how the author, an experienced falconer grieving the sudden death of her father, endeavored to train for the first time a dangerous goshawk predator as part of her personal recovery. 
- (Baker & Taylor) 


Dr. Karen WeekesDr. Karen Weekes is an Associate Professor of English at Penn State University, Abington College.

On certain Monday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following."

Meet Janet Benton, author

Lilli de Jong, by Janet BentonWine & Cheese Book Signing Social

Sunday, October 15, 2-3:30 p.m.
Community Room

The author will give a talk on Lilli de Jong with a Q&A after.  Book signing with wine & cheese to follow.

About Lilli de Jong:

In Benton’s debut novel, Lilli de Jong... an unwed mother chooses a life of heartache and thankless labor in order to keep her infant daughter and her own principles in late-19th-century Philadelphia. 

- Publisher’s Weekly, Mothers from the Past: PW Talks with Janet Benton, by Victoria Sandbrook Flynn | March 24, 2017

Pregnant, left behind by her lover, and banished from her Quaker home and teaching position, Lilli de Jong enters a home for wronged women to deliver her child. She is stunned at how much her infant needs her and at how quickly their bond overtakes her heart. Mothers in her position face disabling prejudice, which is why most give up their newborns. But Lilli can’t accept such an outcome. Instead, she braves moral condemnation and financial ruin in a quest to keep herself and her baby alive. 

Confiding their story to her diary as it unfolds, Lilli takes readers from an impoverished charity to a wealthy family’s home to the streets of a burgeoning American city. Drawing on rich history, Lilli de Jong is both an intimate portrait of loves lost and found and a testament to the work of mothers. “So little is permissible for a woman,” writes Lilli, “yet on her back every human climbs to adulthood.” - Random House

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick NessWednesday, October 18, from 4 - 5 p.m.
Ages 12-18

Sponsored by the Friends of Abington Library

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

What if you aren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.

Sign up early for a free copy of the book.

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

On certain Monday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following."

This month’s Saturday Book Club selection is “The Tiger's Wife,” by Te?a Obreht.

Struggling to understand why her beloved grandfather left his family to die alone in a field hospital far from home, a young doctor in a war-torn Balkan country takes over her grandfather's search for a mythical ageless vagabond while referring to a worn copy of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. A first novel. 18,000 first printing. - (Baker & Taylor)

This New York Times Bestseller and National Book Award Finalist was named one of the best books of the year by The Wall Street Journal, O: The Oprah Magazine, The Economist, Vogue, Slate, Chicago Tribune, The Seattle Times, Dayton Daily News, Publishers Weekly, Alan Cheuse and NPR’s All Things Considered.

Copies of the book are available at the Front Desk.

The Saturday Book Club has been meeting continually since 2001, but we always welcome new members!  Dr. Harold Halbert will lead the discussion. Copies of the book are available at the Front Desk. We encourage registration. Please drop by the Front Desk or call to register.

RUSSIA vs. USA Espionage at Work

 

RUSSIA vs. USA Espionage at WorkThursday, October 26, at 7 p.m. 
Abington Free Library
Community Room

News headlines daily declare the attempts at spying by Putin’s intelligence apparatus. But what of the American C.I.A.? Espionage certainly is among the activities of America’s premier intelligence agency. Who are the more effective spies? What are their targets? Come to the Library to join a discussion with former intelligence officer, Ira Cooperman, on how Russia and the U.S. compete in the field of espionage.

Ira Cooperman is a former intelligence officer who has worked with CIA, NSA and the military during the Vietnam War, was a reporter for “The Los Angeles Times,” and has taught National Security courses for over 10 years at the Chautauqua Institution. A member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, he is a graduate of San Francisco State University, has lectured at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the State University of New York.

Please call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, email KMcInnis@mclinc.org go online at abingtonfreelibrary.org or sign up in the Library Office.

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

Hidden Figures

Sept. 6, 2017 Hidden Figures: Motion Picture

“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.” - (Alert)


 Killers of the Flower Moon

Oct. 11 - Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


Fun Home

 Nov. 8 - Fun home : a family tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel’s sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, it’s a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.

 


The Invisible Bridge

 March (date TBD) - The Invisible Bridge, by Julie Orringer

Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter’s recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his—and his family’s—history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


News of the World

 April (date TBD) - News of the world : a novel, by Paulette Jiles 

Kidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn’t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10-year-old to her family for a $50 gold piece. Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together. Capt. Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople (hence the title) and tries to “civilize” Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types... 
- School Library Journal


H is for Hawk

 May (date TBD) - H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald

An award-winning best-seller from the UK recounts how the author, an experienced falconer grieving the sudden death of her father, endeavored to train for the first time a dangerous goshawk predator as part of her personal recovery. 
- (Baker & Taylor) 


Dr. Karen WeekesDr. Karen Weekes is an Associate Professor of English at Penn State University, Abington College. Her teaching and research interests include contemporary American and world literature, women’s writing, and graphic memoir and other non-traditional modes of autobiography.

Meditation - For A Stress Free Holiday and Beyond

Jim Rose returns!
Wednesday, Nov. 15, @ 7:00 p.m.

The scientific community has recently been exploring the use of meditation as a healing modality.

Join Jim Rose, M Ed. Rutgers University retired executive at Johnson & Johnson and long-time meditator, as he discusses the extraordinary effect of meditation. It can reduce stress-related responses, improve concentration, enhance clarity of thought, and increase mental equilibrium.

He will also present a simple, yet powerful, meditation technique that can enrich one’s life personally, professionally, and spiritually and help with seasonal stress.

Please register online, at the Information Desk (215-885-5180, ext. 13) or email askabington@gmail.com.

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
