Facilitated by Susannah Risley

The Hero’s Journey of leaving the world of the known and venturing into the unknown is the world’s ancient myth. In modern times we do not slay dragons. Yet we might leave behind a safe world for an adventure that is just as demanding. Participants in this four-session writing workshop will explore the plot of the Hero’s Journey as a way to view and write about their own experiences and the wisdom gained from it.

Kristin Kimball, author of our One County, One Book choice, The Dirty Life: a Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love, shares such an experience with us.  

Registration required by calling the Reference Desk at 388-4511

Books Sandwiched In
Sponsored by the Friends of the Library

The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night-Time by Mark Haddon, reviewed by Janine Kruiswijk, Executive Director of the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region and the parent of a young adult with autism. The novel is narrated in the first-person perspective by Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15-year-old boy who describes himself as “a mathematician with some behavioral difficulties” living in Swindon, Wiltshire. According to author Haddon,“Curious Incident is not a book about Asperger’s....if anything it’s a novel about difference, about being an outsider, about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way.” 

The Monday series of talks is held at noon in the McChesney Room of the Central Library on Clinton Street. You may bring a bag lunch; coffee and tea are available for a nominal fee. The room is equipped with special devices for the hearing-impaired. These programs are also broadcast on the Schenectady Public Access channel. See program listing for days and times.
