Book Discussion

The Liars' Club by Mary Karr (1995, 220 pp.) Led by Barbara Griff.

A gritty, raucous memoir about Karr's hardscrabble childhood in an east Texas refinery town. The title refers to a group of oil workers who meet regularly to drink beer and tell tall tales; Karr's father is part of the group and she frequently accompanies him. Written with lacerating wit, the book reads more like a novel than a memoir. The Liars' Club spent over a year on The New York Times best seller list. A "fearless, poignant, and often hilarious foray into the crazy darknesses of an AMerican childhood."

Everyone is welcomed to enjoy a lively discussion and refreshments! Copies of the books are available at the library.

Refreshments served.

China Notes of the Venerable Foreign Expert Author Talk

China Notes of the Venerable Foreign Expert
Book Talk and Signing with Pat Endress

Join us as author Patricia Endress discusses her recently released book China Notes of the Venerable Foreign Expert on Sunday, October 27th at 2:00 p.m. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.

China Notes of the Venerable Foreign Expert is a collection of accounts of Pat’s time spent in China on an off from 2000-2008 where she taught English to Chinese students. In the book Pat shares her day-to-day life, the students and fellow teachers that she met, new foods that she ate, changes in the city and school, as well as some history and cultural background.

Pat’s Chinese students knew that she was a grandmother but not like any grandmother they knew. “Many old people stay at home after retiring,” one student wrote. “But Professor Pat, who may be my granny according to her age in Our China, came to China alone. It is very marvelous.” The students decided she had a young heart in an old body. She found that she had become a model for old age.

Patricia Endress holds bachelor and master degrees from Northwestern University, has taken graduate school sociology courses at the New School for Social Research and attended history courses at Western Connecticut State University. She has taught at three universities and three community colleges.

The event is free and is open to all! For more information contact the Sherman Library at 860-354-2455.
