Join the library for a "biting" conversation with author Zoje Stage whose new psychological thriller, Baby Teeth, became one of the summer’s most buzzed about books!

In the tradition of The Dinner and We Need to Talk About Kevin, her debut is a “bad seed” book about a mom desperate to find help for her young daughter who may be more dangerous than she lets on.

We’ll have a luncheon of bite-sized morsels to help you sink your teeth into the thrilling details!

Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase following the talk.

Bio: Before turning to novels, Zoje Stage had a deep and eclectic background in film and theatre. Highlights include being a 2012 Emerging Storytellers Fellow from the Independent Filmmaker Project and a 2008 Fellow in Screenwriting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. In 2009 she won the Screenplay Live! Screenwriting Competition, which afforded her the opportunity to direct a staged reading of her winning script, The Machine Who Loved, for the High Falls Film Festival in Rochester, NY. As a playwright, Zoje is most proud of her play, Monster, which was produced in Pittsburgh by the Upstairs Theatre. After living in Rochester for many years, she is back in her hometown of Pittsburgh.

Marketing the Presidency: Memories and Memorabilia
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

When most folks hear the word “marketing”, they think of it as a relatively modern term. However, in terms of presidential candidates, from George Washington to today, candidates have been marketing themselves and their ideas from the beginning.

Join the library for a special presentation that focuses on the odd artifacts which campaigns have produced to spotlight their candidate’s name in front of the electorate. Some of the items include a James Monroe snuff box promoting the Monroe Doctrine, a Teddy Roosevelt cast iron door stop, an Eisenhower bar of soap reading “Clean Up With Ike”, and a Richard Nixon shower head!

Take a stroll with us down Memorabilia Lane for an afternoon of political, whimsical, and historical fun!

The Game Room: A Table Top Experience
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Thanks to The Big Bang Theory, popular podcasts, and the rise of Nerd Power, gaming is now more popular than ever.  Join the library for a chance to trade your thousand-plus cable channels and the rabbit holes of YouTube for some real fun with real people –plus a rule book and a table top!

The Game Room meets twice a month for an evening of conversation, game play, and turn-taking.  We are completely free —no more having to purchase overpriced coffee for the right to use precious counter space!—and we welcome Euro Games, deck building games, RPGs, and whatever else happens to move your meeple.

In addition to our own collection, The Game Room is happily BYOB, or (Bring Your Own Board game.)
