Bullying Stops—Today!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Adult Program

Throughout the decades, as a school principal and director of guidance, Mark Walters has regularly spoken out against the evils of bullyingin schools as well as in society, in general. He stresses the positive approach: each child has endless possibilities, and if these are brought out, a bully can be transformed into a "builder." Each and every child can be empoweredto wish, to dream, to plan, and to do. When a child celebrates himself or herself, that child celebrates the world.

Mark Walters is confident that his time-proven ideas, thoughts, and suggestions regarding bullying will bring a deeper understanding to and for all. Take a look at a YouTube clip of Mark giving a presentation:

French; 2007; rated PG-13; 112 minutes

The French editor of Elle magazine, Jean-Dominique Bauby, in 1995 at the age of 43, suffered a stroke that paralyzed his entire body, except his left eye. Using that eye to blink out his memoir, Bauby eloquently described the aspect of his interior world, from the psychological torment of being trapped inside his body to his imagined stories from lands he’d only visited in his mind.

Book Talk: Exit West, by Mohsin Hamid
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

New program! We meet monthly on the second Thursday of the month.

“When Nadia and Saeed fall in love in a distant unnamed city, they are just like any other young couple. But soon bullets begin to fly, fighter jets streak the sky, and curfews fall. As the spell of violence spreads, they flee their country, leaving behind their loved ones. Early in Exit West, author Mohsin Hamid explains that geography is destiny, and in the case of his two young lovers, geography dictates that they must leave. Hamid offers up a fantastical device to deliver his refugees to places: they pass through magic doors. Rather than unmooring the story from reality, this device, as well as a few other fantastical touches, makes the book more poignant and focused, pointing our attention to the emotions of exile rather than the mechanics. Surrounded by other refugees, Nadia and Saeed try to establish their places in the world, putting up different responses to their circumstances. The result is … an intimate human story about an experience shared by countless people of the world, one that most Americans just witness on television.” --Chris Schluep, The Amazon Book Review

Friday Morning Bookies: Where the Past Begins, by Amy Tan
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Adult Program

In Where the Past Begins, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement, Amy Tan is at her most intimate, revealing the truths and inspirations that underlie her extraordinary fiction. By delving into vivid memories of her traumatic childhood, confessions of self-doubt in her journals, and heartbreaking letters to and from her mother, she gives evidence to all that made it both unlikely and inevitable that she would become a writer. Through spontaneous storytelling, she shows how a fluid fictional state of mind unleashed near-forgotten memories that became the emotional nucleus of her novels. Tan explores shocking truths uncovered by family memorabilia—the real reason behind an IQ test she took at age six, why her parents lied about their education, mysteries surrounding her maternal grandmother—and, for the first time publicly, writes about her complex relationship with her father, who died when she was fifteen. Suffused with candor and characteristic humor, Where the Past Begins takes readers into the idiosyncratic workings of her writer’s mind, a journey that explores memory, imagination, and truth, with fiction serving as both her divining rod and link to meaning.” –Jacket

Evening Book Group: Three Junes, by Julia Glass
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Adult Program

In June of 1989 Paul McLeod, a newspaper publisher and recent widower, travels to Greece, where he falls for a young American artist and reflects on the complicated truth about his marriage. Six years later, again in June, Paul's death draws his three grown sons and their families back to their ancestral home. Fenno, the eldest, a wry, introspective gay man, narrates the events of this unforeseen reunion. Far from his straitlaced expatriate life as a bookseller in Greenwich Village, Fenno is stunned by a series of revelations that threaten his carefully crafted defenses. Four years farther on, in yet another June, a chance meeting on the Long Island shore brings Fenno together with Fern Olitsky, the artist who once captivated his father. Now pregnant, Fern must weigh her guilt about the past against her wishes for the future and decide what family means to her. In prose rich with compassion and wit, Three Junes paints a haunting portrait of love's redemptive powers.
