About the book: "A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the 'art' of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own." -goodreads

Our Read Around Town Book Club meets monthly at various locations nearby and within Longmeadow. This month we'll be meeting at Li's Brothers in Longmeadow to discuss the Pulitzer Prize winner Beloved by the late Toni Morrison.

From the publisher: Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe's new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

Copies of this month's book are available for pick up at Storrs Library.

Please note that we ask interested participants to register so that way our host location will have enough chairs available to accommodate our lively group. New members are always welcome!

History of Music for the Advent and Christmas Season

For over a thousand years, the Advent and Christmas season has inspired the creation of music in celebration of this most important period in the Church calendar. From the uses of Gregorian chant for the specific days of the season and polyphonic settings of Biblical texts in church to the secular spirit of the medieval carol, a specific form in its own right, to songs and what we commonly call carols today, there is a wealth of beautiful music from many national traditions.

Rob Humberston will return to present a four week program beginning on Thursday, November 7 in which we will listen to many genres of Christmas seasonal music from the Middle Ages to modern times. We will hear a great variety of music largely choral in nature from the most prolific traditions of Britain and Europe. Allowing for the Thanksgiving holiday, the final installment will occur on Thursday December 5, the day before St. Nicholas Day, a key celebration of the season in the Germanic world and rich in musical treasure. Please join us for an instructive and enjoyable program of beautiful music of the season. Please register online at longmeadowlibrary.org.

History of Music for the Advent and Christmas Season

For over a thousand years, the Advent and Christmas season has inspired the creation of music in celebration of this most important period in the Church calendar. From the uses of Gregorian chant for the specific days of the season and polyphonic settings of Biblical texts in church to the secular spirit of the medieval carol, a specific form in its own right, to songs and what we commonly call carols today, there is a wealth of beautiful music from many national traditions.

Rob Humberston will return to present a four week program beginning on Thursday, November 7 in which we will listen to many genres of Christmas seasonal music from the Middle Ages to modern times. We will hear a great variety of music largely choral in nature from the most prolific traditions of Britain and Europe. Allowing for the Thanksgiving holiday, the final installment will occur on Thursday December 5, the day before St. Nicholas Day, a key celebration of the season in the Germanic world and rich in musical treasure. Please join us for an instructive and enjoyable program of beautiful music of the season. Please register online at longmeadowlibrary.org.

History of Music for the Advent and Christmas Season

For over a thousand years, the Advent and Christmas season has inspired the creation of music in celebration of this most important period in the Church calendar. From the uses of Gregorian chant for the specific days of the season and polyphonic settings of Biblical texts in church to the secular spirit of the medieval carol, a specific form in its own right, to songs and what we commonly call carols today, there is a wealth of beautiful music from many national traditions.

Rob Humberston will return to present a four week program beginning on Thursday, November 7 in which we will listen to many genres of Christmas seasonal music from the Middle Ages to modern times. We will hear a great variety of music largely choral in nature from the most prolific traditions of Britain and Europe. Allowing for the Thanksgiving holiday, the final installment will occur on Thursday December 5, the day before St. Nicholas Day, a key celebration of the season in the Germanic world and rich in musical treasure. Please join us for an instructive and enjoyable program of beautiful music of the season. Please register online at longmeadowlibrary.org.
