Short and Sweet: The Bite-Size Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Sometimes less is more.  Why clog your bookshelf with large tomes and heavy doorstopper novels?  It's enough to scare the Dickens out of a reader!
 
Each month, we'll delve into a different short story or novella.  Classic tales, modern yarns, anything under two hundred pages!
 
So come and dip your toes into the shallow end of the literary pool.  The story's fine!
 
This month's selection: Music of the Swamp by Lewis Nordan
 
Lewis Nordan’s fiction invents its own world--always populated by madly heroic misfits. In Music of the Swamp, he focuses his magic and imagination on a boy’s utterly helpless love for his utterly hopeless father--a man who attracts bad luck like a magnet. Nordan evokes ten-year-old Sugar Mecklin’s world with dazzling clarity: the smells, the tastes, and most surely the sounds of life in this peculiar, somewhat bizarre, Delta town. Sugar discovers that what his daddy says is true: “The Delta is filled up with death”; but he also finds an endless supply of hope. (Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill)

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 a 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: Make Way for Tomorrow (1937)
 
Retired married couple Barkley (Victor Moore) and Lucy (Beulah Bondi) struggle through the Great Depression, losing their home to foreclosure. Their five grown children have their own financial problems, and although son George (Thomas Mitchell) and daughter Nellie (Minna Gombell) can each board one of their parents, none of the children can afford to house them both. Before they are forced to split up, the couple take one last outing together as they ponder their futures. (Rotten Tomatoes)

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, we are reading Circe by Madeline Miller. 

From the publisher: In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child -- not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power -- the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language, and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.

When Jabez's contract with Mr. Scratch concludes, he desperately turns to Webster to represent him in a trial for his soul.  (Rotten Tomatoes)
