Join us to watch Loving: Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

Book Discussion Group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm.  Join us for a great discussion!

We are discussing: One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dobb. This 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.

     Family Book Club: 13 Reasons Why

Many years ago Jay Asher released a book entitled, "13 Reasons Why".  Netflix recently released their version of the story and it has been met with many mixed reviews.  One consistent viewpoint throughout the controversy is that as a society, we often tend to avoid conversations about such harrowing topics with our children.  Come to this Family Book Club and break that barrier.  We will discuss the book as a group and perhaps have a conversation about the series as well.  All children and youth who participate must be accompanied by an adult.  Together, we can build a better world.  Let's get the conversation started.

We are discussing: The Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux.  Have you ever wanted to rewrite your past? Three best friends, all with the same birthday, are about to turn forty. Celebrating at a summerhouse in Maine, Leslie, Madison , and Ellie are taking stock of their lives and loves, their wishes and choices. But none of them expect the gift that awaits them at the summerhouse: the chance for each of them to turn their what-might-have-beens into reality.  Now, a mysterious Madame Zoya, offers each of them a chance to relive any three weeks from the past. Will the road not taken prove a better path? Each woman will have to decide for herself as she follows the dream that got away...and each must choose the life that will truly satisfy the heart's deepest longing

The Clumsy Dragon by Kirk Smith and Lauren Collier Swindler

August 7th 6:30PM

A magical, musical, interactive play for family audiences. It is the story of a young wizard (he is only 73 at the start of the show) named Alzabar and a clumsy dragon named Mirabelle, who must overcome a number of challenges in their budding friendship. Along the way they receive dubious assistance from a pompous Narrator who plays several supporting roles. The play touches on themes of loyalty, self-image and acceptance, and includes several whimsical song-and-dance numbers. Performed by members of the Teen Theater Ensemble of the Yocum Institute for Arts Education. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT. 610.929.0589 #SocialLiteracy
