RUSSIA vs. USA Espionage at WorkThursday, October 26, at 7 p.m. 
Abington Free Library
Community Room

News headlines daily declare the attempts at spying by Putin’s intelligence apparatus. But what of the American C.I.A.? Espionage certainly is among the activities of America’s premier intelligence agency. Who are the more effective spies? What are their targets? Come to the Library to join a discussion with former intelligence officer, Ira Cooperman, on how Russia and the U.S. compete in the field of espionage.

Ira Cooperman is a former intelligence officer who has worked with CIA, NSA and the military during the Vietnam War, was a reporter for “The Los Angeles Times,” and has taught National Security courses for over 10 years at the Chautauqua Institution. A member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, he is a graduate of San Francisco State University, has lectured at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the State University of New York.

Please call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, email KMcInnis@mclinc.org go online at abingtonfreelibrary.org or sign up in the Library Office.

Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

Hidden Figures

Sept. 6, 2017 Hidden Figures: Motion Picture

“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.” - (Alert)


 Killers of the Flower Moon

Oct. 11 - Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


Fun Home

 Nov. 8 - Fun home : a family tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel’s sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, it’s a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.

 


The Invisible Bridge

 March (date TBD) - The Invisible Bridge, by Julie Orringer

Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter’s recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his—and his family’s—history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


News of the World

 April (date TBD) - News of the world : a novel, by Paulette Jiles 

Kidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn’t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10-year-old to her family for a $50 gold piece. Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together. Capt. Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople (hence the title) and tries to “civilize” Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types... 
- School Library Journal


H is for Hawk

 May (date TBD) - H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald

An award-winning best-seller from the UK recounts how the author, an experienced falconer grieving the sudden death of her father, endeavored to train for the first time a dangerous goshawk predator as part of her personal recovery. 
- (Baker & Taylor) 


Dr. Karen WeekesDr. Karen Weekes is an Associate Professor of English at Penn State University, Abington College. Her teaching and research interests include contemporary American and world literature, women’s writing, and graphic memoir and other non-traditional modes of autobiography.

Toastmasters Club
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

November’s Saturday Book Club selection is “The Great Fire,” by Shirley Hazzard.

In the aftermath of World War II, young men and women living in Europe and Asia reconstruct their lives, including a soldier who learns that material goods and success are not enough, and a woman in Japan who tends to her dying brother. - (Baker & Taylor)

The Saturday Book Club has been meeting continually since 2001. We always welcome new members!  Dr. Harold Halbert will lead the discussion.

Copies of the book are available at the Front Desk.

Toastmasters Club
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
