Brown Bag Book Group

This month we are reading Summer Hours at the Robbers Library by Sue Halpern.  Feel free to bring your lunch.  Desserts and beverages served. 

People are drawn to libraries for all kinds of reasons. Most come for the books themselves, of course; some come to borrow companionship. For head librarian Kit, the public library in Riverton, New Hampshire, offers what she craves most: peace. Here, no one expects Kit to talk about the calamitous events that catapulted her out of what she thought was a settled, suburban life. She can simply submerge herself in her beloved books and try to forget her problems.

But that changes when fifteen-year-old, home-schooled Sunny gets arrested for shoplifting a dictionary. The judge throws the book at Sunny—literally—assigning her to do community service at the library for the summer. Bright, curious, and eager to connect with someone other than her off-the-grid hippie parents, Sunny coaxes Kit out of her self-imposed isolation. They’re joined by Rusty, a Wall Street high-flyer suddenly crashed to earth.   

In this little library that has become the heart of this small town, Kit, Sunny, and Rusty are drawn to each other, and to a cast of other offbeat regulars. As they come to terms with how their lives have unraveled, they also discover how they might knit them together again and finally reclaim their stories.

Walking France

One pilgrim's story of 500 miles on the Chemin de St. Jacques, a beautiful walking route traveled by pilgrims for nearly 1000 years. The journey through woodlands, fields, volcanic formations and ancient villages allows for meditative walking, engaging conversation, and introspection. Gale Carey made the 35-day trek and brings us the story of her journey as a modern day pilgrim - from the practical to the philosophical.  Gale's presentation combines visuals (Powerpoint containing videos and audio), props (my backpack and its contents) and treats (French cakes called Madeleines).

Brown Bag Book Group

I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High by Tony Danza.   Feel free to bring your lunch.  Dessert and beverages are provided.  Pick up your copy at the front desk.  Tony Danza’s absorbing account of a year spent teaching tenth-grade English at Northeast High -- Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3600 students. 
 
Entering Northeast’s crowded halls in September of 2009, Tony found his way to a classroom filled with twenty-six students who were determined not to cut him any slack.  They cared nothing about “Mr. Danza’s” showbiz credentials, and they immediately put him on the hot seat. 
 
Featuring indelible portraits of students and teachers alike, I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had reveals just how hard it is to keep today’s technologically savvy – and often alienated -- students engaged, how impressively committed most teachers are, and the outsized role counseling plays in a teacher’s day, given the psychological burdens many students carry.  The book also makes vivid how a modern high school works, showing Tony in a myriad of roles – from lecturing on To Kill a Mockingbird to “coaching” the football team to organizing a talent show to leading far-flung field trips to hosting teacher gripe sessions.
 
A surprisingly poignant account, I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny but is mostly filled with hard-won wisdom and feel-good tears.

Graphic Novel of the Month Club - Crush

Every month we select a new title that you'll love! This month we’re reading “Crush," the third book in the Awkward series by Svetlana Chmakova. 

Jorge seems to have it all together. He's big so nobody messes with him, but he's also a sweet guy with a great group of friends. The only time he ever feels off his game is when he crosses paths with a certain girl... But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift, will Jorge be able to balance what his friends expect of him vs. what he actually wants?

Books are selected for ages 8-18, and may contain some PG violence or language. Books will be on the YA Balcony ASAP!
