YA Fiction Book Club

All ages 12-102 are welcome to our Young Adult Fiction Book Club, held on the last Tuesday of every month at 6:30. Refreshments are served, and a lively discussion of that month's book is enjoyed! No registration required.

October Selection: Mosquitoland, by David Arnold

From Goodreads:

I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.

After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the "wastelands" of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.

So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.

Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, Mosquitoland is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

Myths in American History with Frank Grzyb

So, you think you know American history.  After all, you were taught this discipline from the time you were in elementary school all the way through high school and perhaps college. Well, so did Frank Grzyb until his reading, research, and just plain amateur sleuthing proved otherwise.  Join Frank at the Library for an enlightening and entertaining evening while he reexamines several historic events about America’s illustrious past that are not exactly as they appear.  Seven-time author and amateur historian, Frank Grzyb welcomes all who wonder, as he and others have, how and why some of our most cherished beliefs veered a tad off course and came to be accepted without further challenge.

This program is free and open to the public.

There are 39 spaces available.
