Evening Book Discussion

Flight of Dreams cover
Flight of Dreams, by Ariel Lawhon

With everyone onboard harboring dark secrets and at least one person determined to make sure the airship doesn't make the return trip, Flight of Dreams gives an utterly suspenseful, heart-wrenching explanation for one of the most enduring mysteries of the twentieth century. [The passengers on the Hindenberg] know more than they initially let on, and as the novel moves inexorably toward its tragic climax, the question of which of the passengers will survive the trip infuses every scene with a deliciously unbearable tension.

Request the book.

This monthly book discussion is facilitated by Assistant Director Mary Bell. Newcomers are always welcome!

National Park Stories - Parks of the Colorado Plateau

The National Park Service recently celebrated its 100th birthday (2016), and kicked off a second century of stewardship of these treasured places.  Steve Farrar has visited almost every one, and he will be here to share his experiences.  His first talk will focus on the Colorado Plateau: 

Roughly centered on the Four Corners region of the Southwestern US, the Colorado Plateau is mainly composed of high desert lands that are home to ten National Parks.  Steve will recount stories of his travels in the area as he takes us on a tour of “Red Rock Country” that includes a wide variety of amazing natural images: from fantastic rock formations to the iconic Saguaro cactus, from expansive canyon vistas to soaring arches and tight slot canyons.

"Steve has spoken at my library several times and he's always a huge hit. He is a fantastic storyteller and keeps the audience engaged and laughing."  Amy Lapointe, Library Director, Amherst Town Library

Evening Book Discussion

The Radium Girls cover
The Radium Girls, by Kate Moore

As World War I raged across the globe, hundreds of young women toiled away at the radium-dial factories, where they painted clock faces with a mysterious new substance called radium. Assured by their bosses that the luminous material was safe, the women themselves shone brightly in the dark, covered from head to toe with the glowing dust. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" were considered the luckiest alive--until they began to fall mysteriously ill. As the fatal poison of the radium took hold, they found themselves embroiled in one of America's biggest scandals and a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights. The Radium Girls explores the strength of extraordinary women in the face of almost impossible circumstances and the astonishing legacy they left behind.

Request the book.

This monthly book discussion is facilitated by Assistant Director Mary Bell. Newcomers are always welcome!

Evening Book Discussion

The Underground Railroad cover
The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted. Their first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom.

Request the book.

This monthly book discussion is facilitated by Assistant Director Mary Bell. Newcomers are always welcome!

Educated cover
Educated: A Memoir, by Tara Westover

Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag." In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent. As a way out, Tara began to educate herself, learning enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University. Her quest for knowledge would transform her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Tara Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes, and the will to change it.
