Still Life With BreadcrumbsStill Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen

"Once a world-famous photographer, known for her iconic image, "Still Life with Bread Crumbs," Rebecca Winter has drifted out of the spotlight, and is now more inclined to think of herself as the Artist Formerly Known as Rebecca Winter. As her income dries up, she decides to leave behind the expensive world she knows in New York City, sublet her apartment, and move to a small, inexpensive cabin in the country, where her life falls into a quieter rhythm. Withthe help of a local man named Jim Bates, she begins to see the world around her in new, deeper dimensions. At a point in her life when she thought so much was behind her, Rebecca finds herself with a second chance-at life, love, her career, and most important, her understanding of herself."--from publisher's web site.

The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman

'In this landmark, Pulitzer Prize–winning account, renowned historian Barbara W. Tuchman re-creates the first month of World War I: thirty days in the summer of 1914 that determined the course of the conflict, the century, and ultimately our present world. Beginning with the funeral of Edward VII, Tuchman traces each step that led to the inevitable clash. And inevitable it was, with all sides plotting their war for a generation. Dizzyingly comprehensive and spectacularly portrayed with her famous talent for evoking the characters of the war’s key players, Tuchman’s magnum opus is a classic for the ages.' - Publisher summary

"Safe in their picturesque chateau behind the front lines, the French general staff passes down a direct order to Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas): take the Ant Hill at any cost. A blatant suicide mission, the attack is doomed to failure. Covering up their fatal blunder, the generals order the arrest of three innocent soldiers, charging them with cowardice and mutiny. Dax, a lawyer in civilian life, rises to the men's defense but soon realizes that, unless he can prove that the generals were to blame,nothing less than a miracle will save his clients from the firing squad. A compelling masterpiece from world-class director/writer Stanley Kubrick." (Newsweek).

"The Dane family's roots tangle deep in the Ozark Mountain town of Henbane, but that doesn't keep sixteen-year-old Lucy Dane from being treated like an outsider. Folks still whisper about her mother, a bewitching young stranger who inspired local myths when she vanished years ago. When one of Lucy's few friends, slow-minded Cheri, is found murdered, Lucy feels haunted by the two lost girls--the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn't protect. Everything changes when Lucy stumbles across Cheri's necklace in an abandoned trailer and finds herself drawn into a search for answers. What Lucy discovers makes it impossible to ignore the suspicion cast on her own kin. More alarming, she suspects Cheri's death could be linked to her mother's disappearance, and the connection between the two puts Lucy at risk of losing everything. In a place where the bonds of blood weigh heavy, Lucy must decide where her allegiances lie."

    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown @voorpl.org
   

Erica Salamida, Program Manager at the Northeastern NY Alzheimer’s Association, will return for another informative program about aging and Alzheimer’s. One of the many difficulties that arise with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia is addressing safety needs. Caregivers need to know how best to adapt the environment, whether at home or in a residential care setting. In this workshop, you will learn about the changes in the body and brain brought on by Alzheimer’s disease and identify ways in which the environment can affect people with dementia. Erica will share ideas for practical home enhancements that will help caregivers support their aging loved ones. Attendees will be able to identify potential hazards and safety concerns in the home while ensuring that independence is maintained. Creating a supportive environment in a long-term care setting will also be covered.  Local safety programs for people at risk for wandering will be discussed and demonstrated, including Medic Alert - Safe Return and the Albany County Project Lifesaver Program. The coordinator of the program from the Albany County Sherriff's Office will be hand to answer questions. Please register.

"Ephram Jenkins has never forgotten the beautiful girl with the long braids running through the piney woods of Liberty, their small East Texas town. Young Ruby, "the kind of pretty it hurt to look at," is already quite damaged, but Ephram is forcibly drawn to her. As soon as she becomes a young woman and has any power of her own, Ruby flees suffocating Liberty for the bright pull of 1950s New York City. Years later, when a funeral forces her to return home, 30-year-old Ruby will find herself reliving the devastating violence of her girlhood. With the terrifying realization that she might not be strong enough to fight her way back out, Ruby struggles to survive her memories of the town's dark past. Meanwhile, Ephram must choose between loyalty to the sister who raised and stood by him and the chance for a life with the woman he has loved since he was a boy."--Provided by publisher."

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu

Once upon a time, Hazel and Jack were best friends, but that was before he stopped talking to her and disappeared into a forest with a mysterious woman made of ice. Now it's up to Hazel to go in after him. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," Breadcrumbs is a stunningly original fairy tale of modern-day America, a dazzling ode to the power of fantasy, and a heartbreaking meditation on how growing up is as much a choice as it is something that happens to us.

We are excited to have the author, Anne Ursu, visit us virtually via Skpe! She will be joining us after the potluck dinner. Bring a potluck dish to share. Beverages and dessert provided. (For grades 4-6 and a parent/guardian). Please register and pick up a book at the Information Desk.

"Their average age was twenty-five. They came from Berkeley, Cambridge, Paris, London, Chicago--and arrived in New Mexico ready for adventure, or at least resigned to it. But hope quickly turned to hardship as they were forced to adapt to a rugged military town where everything was a secret, including what their husbands were doing at the lab. They lived in barely finished houses with P.O. box addresses in a town wreathed with barbed wire, all for the benefit of a project that didn't exist as far as the public knew. Though they were strangers, they joined together--adapting to a landscape as fierce as it was absorbing, full of the banalities of everyday life and the drama of scientific discovery. And while the bomb was being invented, babies were born, friendships were forged, children grew up, and Los Alamos gradually transformed from an abandoned school on a hill into a real community: one that was strained by the words they couldn't say out loud, the letters they couldn't send home, the freedom they didn't have. But the end of the war would bring even bigger challenges to the people of Los Alamos, as the scientists and their families struggled with the burden of their contribution to the most destructive force in the history of mankind. The Wives of Los Alamos is a novel that sheds light onto one of the strangest and most monumental research projects in modern history. It's a testament to a remarkable group of women who carved out a life for themselves, in spite of the chaos of the war and the shroud of intense secrecy."--Provided by publisher. "

Whiskey and Charlie by Annabel Smith

Whiskey and Charlie might have come from the same family, but they'd tell you two completely different stories about growing up. Whiskey is everything Charlie is not--bold, daring, carefree--and Charlie blames his twin brother for always stealing the limelight, always getting everything, always pushing Charlie back. By the time the twins reach adulthood, they are barely even speaking to each other... When Charlie hears that Whiskey has been in a terrible accident and has slipped into a coma, Charlie can't make sense of it. Who is he without Whiskey?"--Amazon.com.
