Books on Tap - You Can't Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain

A hilarious and timely essay collection about race, gender, and pop culture from upcoming comedy superstar and 2 Dope Queens podcaster Phoebe Robinson

Being a black woman in America means contending with old prejudices and fresh absurdities every day. Comedian Phoebe Robinson has experienced her fair share over the years: she's been unceremoniously relegated to the role of "the black friend," as if she is somehow the authority on all things racial; she's been questioned about her love of U2 and Billy Joel ("isn’t that . . . white people music?"); she's been called "uppity" for having an opinion in the workplace; she's been followed around stores by security guards; and yes, people do ask her whether they can touch her hair all. the. time. Now, she's ready to take these topics to the page—and she’s going to make you laugh as she’s doing it.
 

RSVP for our Books on Tap discussion of Phoebe Robinson’s “You Can't Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain"  http://tinyurl.com/ya437lce  on our website. Don't forget to stop by the library to borrow a copy of the book. We'll get settled, order food/drinks, and catch up with everyone at 7pm on Tuesday, November 28th at The Sitting Duck Tavern.

Meet the Author: Martin Irons

Author Martin Irons will discuss his book Phalanx Against the Divine Wind: Protecting the Fast Carrier Task Force During World War 2.

The book tells the tale of the teenage USS Haynsworth crew that fought for survival during the largest kamikaze attack of World War II.

Admiral William Halsey's Fast Carrier Task Force was the ultimate naval armada during World War II. But to keep his carriers safe, Halsey relied on the destroyers that encircled the battle group. As part of Destroyer Squadron 62, the USS Haynsworth DD 700 battled the Japanese, captured prisoners on the high seas, and rescued pilots. But the teenage crew had to fight for their own survival after being struck during the largest kamikaze attack of the war. Kikusui No. 1 was an epic battle that spanned 30 hours as nearly 700 enemy planes attacked the U.S. Navy warships near Okinawa on April 6-7, 1945.

Phalanx Against the Divine Wind: Protecting the Fast Carrier Task Force During World War 2 will be available for purchase after the talk.

Teen Movie Afternoon - The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Teens! Join us for a pizza as we screen the flick, The LEGO Ninjago Movie (PG; 101 minutes)!

Plot: Cole, Jay, Kai, Lloyd, Nya and Zane are six Lego teens who have extraordinary skills. They are all gifted ninjas, and they spend their nights defending their island of Ninjago against a host of enemy invaders. During the day, however, they lead a much different life. Despite their heroic actions, they must go to school like ordinary teenagers, and in a lot of ways, this causes them more stress than the epic battles they undertake at night. How long will they be able to maintain a healthy balance between their superhero-style defenses and the more ordinary task of high school?
