Get a Life: The Biography and Memoir Book Club
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
A Virtual Meetup - Second Tuesday of the Month at 11:00 AM
 
In this time of social distancing and self-isolation, it is very easy to feel disconnected from the lives and experiences of those outside our four walls. 
 
Join us for a book club that seeks to close that gap by allowing you to walk in the shoes of someone else.
 
We'll concentrate on a different biography or memoir each month and peek behind the curtain of another person's choices, mistakes, regrets, and dreams.  From gossipy tell-alls to poignant essays of self-reflection, we'll work together to prove Socrates right: the unexamined life isn't worth reading!
 
This month: The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
After falling ill and becoming bed-ridden, Elisabeth Tova Bailey is gifted with a pot of flowers containing a wild snail.  The resulting memoir is a pointed and poignant study of convalescence, companionship, and the quiet, and occasionally slimy, grace of the woodland snail.  You'll find yourself reaffirming life and stopping to smell the snails.

All You Can Eat: A Food Chat Club
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Virtual Meetup - Third Wednesday of the Month at 1:00 PM
 
Having trouble finding the right foods during quarantine?
Feel like you're eating the same three meals over and over again?
Just want to tell someone about that great recipe you found?
 
Join us for a monthly "dish" about food and cuisine courtesy of the library's own Cookbook Club!  In this group, we'll have a fun and informal discussion on all things that make us hungry and leave us full. 
 
Everything is on the table!  We want to know how you're doing, what you're making, and how good or bad it is.  At least it'll taste great to be back together!
 
Think of this as an old-fashioned potluck except, instead of a delightful entree, you bring your delightful self!  So come be our next ingredient!

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Club
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Virtual Meetup - Second and Fourth Mondays of the Month - 1:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of all variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple as we look "behind the scenes" to unpack each selection's historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.  
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected.  They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!
 
This week's selection: Funny Bones (1995)
 
This humorous and touching comedy is about a struggling second-generation stage comedian who returns to the England of his childhood to find the source of humor that made his dad so successful. In the process, he discovers some startling secrets in his family's history, and the truth about his father. It is at this point he begins to rediscover the way to make audiences like him again.  Starring Oliver Platt, Lee Evans, and Jerry Lewis. (Hoopla)

This month, we are reading Dumplin' by Julie Murphy

Dubbed "Dumplin'" by her former beauty queen mom, Willowdean has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American-beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy's, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn't surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back. Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant-along with several other unlikely candidates-to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she'll shock the hell out of Clover City-and maybe herself most of all.

This month: Breakfast at Sally's by Richard LeMieux
Once a happily married businessman, avid golfer, and the proud owner of several luxury cars and three boats, conservative-minded Richard LeMieux saw his fortune change almost overnight. In this astonishingly heartfelt memoir, he describes his descent into homelessness and his struggle to survive personal and economic disaster.

Evicted from his home in 2002 and living with his dog, Willow, in a beat-up old van, LeMieux finds himself penniless and estranged from his family and friends. He dines at the Salvation Army (aka Sally’s), attempts suicide, and is treated at a mental hospital where he is diagnosed with depression.

Writing on a secondhand manual typewriter, first at a picnic table in a public park, and then wherever he can, LeMieux describes his odyssey and the quirky, diverse, and endearing cast of characters found among the homeless people of Bremerton, Washington, and, by extension, everywhere else. This is a rare inside-look at how the other America lives, and how one man, beaten down and alone, was able to reconnect, find good people, and ultimately, with their help, to persevere. (Simon and Schuster)

This month: Rebel: My Life Outside the Lines by Nick Nolte

“I had become an actor because real life was hard for me. Sometimes it was really rough. Acting was different from real life, yet it gave me the chance to search for complex stories that helped me understand and cope with what I encountered away from the stage lights.”

Legendary actor Nick Nolte delivers his most revealing performance yet. This intimate memoir is a tale of art, passion, commitment, addiction, and the quest for personal enlightenment as intense and hypnotic as the man himself.

In a career spanning five decades and hundreds of roles, Nick Nolte has become a true Hollywood icon. Rising from a difficult childhood in the rural Midwest to leading roles and a trio of Oscar nominations in the golden West, he has been both celebrated and vilified; survived marriages, divorces, and a string of romances; was named the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine; and suffered public humiliation over his addiction issues, including a drug-fueled trip down the Pacific Coast Highway that resulted in his infamous arrest.

Nick’s untold story, with never-before-seen photos, offers a candid, unvarnished close-up look at the man, the career, the loves, and the life.
