food_beer.GIF 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Read 'n Greet Book Club Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

We are not your typical book club. We meet each month at a different downtown bar for drinks, food and intelligent discussion of contemporary literature. A great book club for all ages (21 + that is...)

Our June discussion will be of the graphic novel Two Brothers by Fabio Moon. Twin brothers Omar and Yaqub may share the same features, but they could not be more different from one another. And the possessive love of their mother, Zana, stirs the troubled waters between them even more. After a brutally violent exchange between the young boys, Yaqub, “the good son,” is sent from his home in Brazil to live with relatives in Lebanon, only to return five years later as a virtual stranger to the parents who bore him, his tensions with Omar unchanged. Family secrets engage the reader in this profoundly resonant story about identity, love, loss, deception, and the dissolution of blood ties.

Location of discussion: Pinhead Susans. New readers are welcome to join us by registering below!

    Contact:    518.388.4511   
   

This three-part series will be held on July 10, 17, and 24.

Facilitated by Brian Phillip Whalen

In these sessions for novice or experienced writers, we’ll learn how prose poetry and flash fiction can be juxtaposed to understand these forms. We’ll explore characteristics and techniques of these genres by reading sample pieces and writing exercises when we meet and at home.

For those age 18+. 

A lecturer at the University at Albany, Brian enjoys teaching about the techniques of fiction and poetry writing using an informal approach. His creative and critical work is heavily influenced by the short prose form and the musical quality of language.

This program series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Sponsored by the Mohawk Valley Library System and participating member libraries.

An atmospheric, transporting tale of adventure, love, and survival from the bestselling author of The Snow Child, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.  Set in 1885 Alaska, the novel alternates between Colonel Allen Forrester, exploring the unmapped Wolverine River, and his wife's experiences back at the army barracks.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4212/34466782054_f6601a6785_o.jpg

Patchett’s most autobiographical novel, this is a funny, chilling, entrancing, and profoundly affecting look into one family’s “commonwealth,” its shared affinities, conflicts, loss, and love.  Spanning five decades, the book explores how a chance encounter at a baby's christening reverberates through the lives of four parents and six children.  When a legendary author uses the children's experiences as the basis for a successful novel, they are forced to come to terms with the deeply loyal connection they feel for one another.
