Sarah Crow: An Intimate Chat with Winnie Frolik
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us for an afternoon of chilling historical fiction and warm treats as we talk with local author Winnie Frolik about her debut novel, Sarah Crow

Set in Georgian England, the novel follows orphan Sarah Pole as she attempts to carve a life out of little means and no relations.  Written as an homage to nineteenth-century classics like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, Frolik’s book balances a gentle compassion for history’s unfortunates with a dark discovery of a little-known piece of English history.

We’ll have warm desserts like hot cocoa and a chocolate fountain to counter the effects of chilly England (and wintry Pittsburgh), so be our guest!

Bio: Winnie Frolik was born and raised in Pittsburgh.  She completed the International Baccalaureate program at Schenley High School and then attended the University of Pittsburgh where she completed a double major in English Literature and Creative Writing.  Sarah Crow is Winnie’s debut historical fiction novel.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road. Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

Mystery Book Club
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth.

From the moment Lucy met her husband’s mother, she knew she wasn’t the wife Diana had envisioned for her perfect son. Exquisitely polite, friendly, and always generous, Diana nonetheless kept Lucy at arm’s length despite her desperate attempts to win her over. And as a pillar in the community, an advocate for female refugees, and a woman happily married for decades, no one had a bad word to say about Diana…except Lucy.

That was five years ago.

Now, Diana is dead, a suicide note found near her body claiming that she longer wanted to live because of the cancer wreaking havoc inside her body. But the autopsy finds no cancer. It does find traces of poison, and evidence of suffocation. Fractured relationships and deep family secrets grow more compelling with every page in this twisty, captivating new novel from Sally Hepworth.

Mystery Book Club
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading Bearskin by James A. McLaughlin

Rice Moore is just beginning to think his troubles are behind him. He’s found a job protecting a remote forest preserve in Virginian Appalachia where his main responsibilities include tracking wildlife and refurbishing cabins. It’s hard work, and totally solitary—perfect to hide away from the Mexican drug cartels he betrayed back in Arizona. But when Rice finds the carcass of a bear killed on the grounds, the quiet solitude he’s so desperately sought is suddenly at risk.

More bears are killed on the preserve and Rice’s obsession with catching the poachers escalates, leading to hostile altercations with the locals and attention from both the law and Rice’s employers. Partnering with his predecessor, a scientist who hopes to continue her research on the preserve, Rice puts into motion a plan that could expose the poachers but risks revealing his own whereabouts to the dangerous people he was running from in the first place.

We’re All Neighbors -- Third Annual Multicultural Pot Luck Dinner
6:00 PM

 

Nothing brings a community together like good food and conversation. So come for dinner and meet your neighbors! 

We are partnering with the Baldwin-Whitehall School District in asking community members to bring a covered dish representing their culture (or something you simply enjoy). 

The Library will provide beverages, paper products and utensils, as well as entertainment, stories and activities for the kids.  All ages are welcome.

So let’s chase the winter chill away and come together and connect to cultures through food and conversation. Let’s celebrate our community’s rich diversity by having dinner with our neighbors and making new friends!

Everyone is welcome here!

Please feel free to bring a recipe card of your dish to that others can take a photo and share (optional).

NOTE:  If the Baldwin-Whitehall School District delays or cancels school due to inclement weather conditions, this event will be cancelled.

Mystery Book Club
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading The Whisper Man by Alex North

After the sudden death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning, a new house, a new town. But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted and murdered five residents. Until Frank Carter was finally caught, he was nicknamed "The Whisper Man," for he would lure his victims out by whispering at their windows at night. Just as Tom and Jake settle into their new home, a young boy vanishes. His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter's crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to revisit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man. And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window...

This month, we are reading Miracle Creek by Angie Kim

In a small town in Virginia, a group of people know each other because they’re part of a special treatment center, a hyperbaric chamber that may cure a range of conditions from infertility to autism. But then the chamber explodes, two people die, and it’s clear the explosion wasn’t an accident. A powerful showdown unfolds as the story moves across characters who are all maybe keeping secrets, hiding betrayals. Chapter by chapter, we shift alliances and gather evidence: Was it the careless mother of a patient? Was it the owners, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? Could it have been a protester, trying to prove the treatment isn’t safe?

This month, we are reading Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away. Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew.
