    Please join our newest book club! This month's selection is "The Gods of Gotham" by Lyndsay Faye. Indulge in some tea and goodies while enjoying good conversation. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" appeared in The New York Mirror; the New York Knickerbockers organized themselves into an official baseball club; and the New York City Police Dept. was established. There's nothing about Poe or the Knicks in Lyndsay Faye's rollicking historical novel, but she does offer a sensational account of what early police work was like for those untested and ill-trained "copper stars" who patrolled the city in 16-hour shifts, trying to keep members of the poipulace from robbing, swindling, thrashing, raping and murdering one another" (Marilyn Stasio New York Times Book Review) This book club also will be discussing this book in the evening (on the 28th)! Registration is not required. The book is available for pick up at the library.

    We have a terrific book club and new members are always welcome! Join us this month for a discussion of the fiction novel "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple. The tightly constructed "Where'd you Go, Bernatdette" is written in many formats--emails, letters, FBI documents, correspondence with a psychiatrist and even an emergency-room bill for a run-in between Bernadette and Audrey. Yet these pieces are strung together so wittily that Ms. Semple's storytelling is always front and center, in sharp focus. You could stop and pay attention to how apt each new format is, how rarely she repeats herself and how imaginatively she unveils every bit of information. But you would have to stop laughing first." by Janet Maslin New York Times Book Review. Stop by the library to pick up this month's selection. No registration required.

    Please join our newest book club! This month's selection is "The Gods of Gotham" by Lyndsay Faye. Indulge in some tea and goodies while enjoying good conversation. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" appeared in The New York Mirror; the New York Knickerbockers organized themselves into an official baseball club; and the New York City Police Dept. was established. There's nothing about Poe or the Knicks in Lyndsay Faye's rollicking historical novel, but she does offer a sensational account of what early police work was like for those untested and ill-trained "copper stars" who patrolled the city in 16-hour shifts, trying to keep members of the poipulace from robbing, swindling, thrashing, raping and murdering one another" (Marilyn Stasio New York Times Book Review) Registration is not required. The book is available for pick up at the library.

    The Lone Samurai: The Life of Musashi Miyamoto by William Scott Wilson Musashi is primarily known in the West as the author of The Book of Five Rings, a guide to swordsmanship strategies that became a essential business-strategy manual in the 1980s. Wilson, having translated Musashi's book into English, turns for the first time to biography, with as complete a life of the man behind the sword as possible, given his legendary stature and peripatetic, largely undocumented story. Musashi lived in the 17th century and had his first match at 13 with a shugyosha (an older, professional swordsman); only Musashi walked away alive. For three decades, he wandered feudal Japan, moving from patron to patron, taking on opponents in formal and informal matches, teaching others his art and sometimes taking part in clan and regional rivalries. He eventually settled in southern Japan, where his martial art skills led organically to visual art: simple-looking, highly disciplined ink-and-brush painting and calligraphy. Toward the end of his life, Musashi synthesized everything he'd learned into the literary work he is now best known for. Wilson integrates a considerable amount of Japanese history and culture into a short, dense book with lots of specialized information. Although Musashi doesn't become fully dimensional—and given the scarcity of primary source material, he probably can't—Wilson provides an extensive appendix of other materials that have depicted the legendary swordsman over the centuries.-Publisher’s Weekly Additional Film suggestion: Samurai Trilogy:Musashi Miyamoto Criterion Collection

    Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa Ryunosuke Akutagawa (1892-1927) is one of Japan’s foremost stylists-a modernist master whose short stories are marked by highly original imagery, cynicism, beauty and wild humor. ‘Rashomon’ and the ‘Bamboo Grove’ inspired Kurosawa’s magnificent film and depict a past in which morality is turned upside down, while tales such as ‘the Nose‘, ‘O-Gin’, and ‘Loyalty’ paint a rich and imaginative picture of a medieval Japan peopled by Shoguns and priests, vagrants and peasants. – Amazon.
