2:30 PM - 3:45 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You'll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library's Conference Room. This month we will discuss author Colin Cotterill's novel The Coroner's Lunch:

Laos, 1972.The Communist Pathet Lao has taken over. Most of the educated class has fled, but 72-year-old Dr. Siri Paiboun, a Paris-trained doctor, remains and is appointed state coroner. When three bodies are recovered from a reservoir, Dr. Siri establishes that the cause of death was not drowning -- they seem to have been electrocuted. And then there is the inexplicable death of a Party bigwig's wife at a banquet. Dr. Siri doesn't think her death was from natural causes. In the course of his investigations, he travels to his birthplace, where he makes a discovery.

Colin Cotterill is an extremely talented author who, by his lightness of touch and his simple, direct writing style, draws the reader in totally to a complex, many-layered world. --Maxine Clark

Our Disunited States of America: the struggle between conservatives and liberals
3:00 PM

     Massachusetts author and retired political science teacher Don Jansiewicz speaks about his new book Our Disunited States of America: The Struggle between Conservatives and Liberals. This book examines the battles between America's two political tribes, each of which has tried to gain and maintain control of our country. Both have taken turns in leading our nation, and each tribe has been pushed aside after a few years, only to come back later. This is truly a back-and-forth type of government.

       The book does not take sides to favor one tribe over the other. Instead, it examines the problem of our political dysfunction by describing the competing visions, the end of moderation, tribal membership and painful histories. Then it looks at the causes analyzing the underlying factors (psychological, social and experiential), the role of the media, manipulation strategies (that only exacerbate the conflict), as well as Russian disinformation.   

       Finally, the book focuses on solutions that range from winner-take-all approaches to structural changes in government, as well as moderating factors (population shifts, a greater role for women, generational changes, revitalizing rural and small-town America and dedicated moderation advocates).
