Classics Book Club

 

 

Join us for our first session of the Classics Book Club!  For our inaugural pick we will be reading and discussing "To Kill a Mockingbird", by Harper Lee (1960)

Amazon.com: Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression, To Kill a Mockingbird follows three years in the life of 8-year-old Scout Finch, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus--three years punctuated by the arrest and eventual trial of a young black man accused of raping a white woman. Though her story explores big themes, Harper Lee chooses to tell it through the eyes of a child. The result is a tough and tender novel of race, class, justice, and the pain of growing up.

Books will be available one month before the discussion.  Registration is not required.

This month's selection is Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann.

NY Times: "In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. One of her relatives was shot. Another was poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more Osage were dying under mysterious circumstances, and many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered."

CANCELLED- Vic Casaretti: Chicago Gangsters

We are saddened to have to cancel this program due to the passing of our friend, Vic Casaretti

Chicago mobsters of the 1920s have become a sort of "Pirates of the Caribbean" for our city. So it's easy to gloss over the fact that these murderous lawbreakers introduced the world to concepts like the drive-by shooting. The Prohibition-era criminal is romantized in gangster movies and pop music. And some of them in hindsight seem particularly silly and curious, despite being evil, with their goofy hats and names like "Willie Potatoes" and "Cockeyed Louie." The Irish North Side Gang and South Side Italian Chicago Outfit waged bloody war in 1920 Chicago.

Johnny Torrio, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Al Capone, and more in this presentation!

Vic Casaretti will be here to discuss these famous mobsters.

Film: Resilience

The Town of Monroe Social Services will be hosting a FREE screening of this one-hour documentary.

"Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope"

“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.” 

From KPJR Films:  The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
