This month we will discuss Tom's River by Dan Fagin, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize.  The riveting true story of a small town ravaged by industrial pollution, Tom's River melds hard-hitting investigative reporting, a fascinating scientific detective story, and an unforgettable cast of characters into a sweeping narrative.  One of New Jersey’s seemingly innumerable quiet seaside towns, Toms River became the unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the annals of toxic dumping.

Contemporary Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join us Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 7 p.m. We will be discussing Before I Let You Go by Kelly Rimmer

                                                                                     

 

The 2:00 a.m. call is the first time Lexie Vidler has heard her sister’s voice in years. Annie is a drug addict, a thief, a liar—and in trouble, again. Lexie has always bailed Annie out, given her money, a place to sleep, sent her to every kind of rehab. But this time, she’s not just strung out—she’s pregnant and in premature labor. If she goes to the hospital, she’ll lose custody of her baby—maybe even go to prison. But the alternative is unthinkable.

As weeks unfold, Lexie finds herself caring for her fragile newborn niece while her carefully ordered life is collapsing around her. She’s in danger of losing her job, and her fiancé only has so much patience for Annie’s drama. In court-ordered rehab, Annie attempts to halt her downward spiral by confronting long-buried secrets from the sisters’ childhood, ghosts that Lexie doesn’t want to face. But will the journey heal Annie, or lead her down a darker path?

Both candid and compassionate, Before I Let You Go explores a hotly divisive topic and asks how far the ties of family love can be stretched before they finally break.

Contemporary Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join us Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 7 p.m. We will be discussing The Emperor of Shoes by Spencer Wise

                                                                                     

 

Alex Cohen, a twenty-six-year-old Jewish Bostonian, is living in southern China, where his father runs their family-owned shoe factory. Alex reluctantly assumes the helm of the company, but as he explores the plant’s vast floors and assembly lines, he comes to a grim realization: employees are exploited, regulatory systems are corrupt and Alex’s own father is engaging in bribes to protect the bottom line. 

When Alex meets a seamstress named Ivy, his sympathies begin to shift. She is an embedded organizer of a pro-democratic Chinese party, secretly sowing dissonance among her fellow laborers. Will Alex remain loyal to his father and his heritage? Or will the sparks of revolution ignite? 

Deftly plotted and vibrantly drawn, The Emperor of Shoes is a timely meditation on idealism, ambition, father-son rivalry and cultural revolution, set against a vivid backdrop of social and technological change. (GoodReads review)

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This workshop is designed for children ages 5 and up. Each participant will make their own creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. The process does not involve traditional soap making techniques, so there is no lye exposure.

At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade soap home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away. Soap is approximately 4 oz. with a 2” rubber duckie and overall measurements of 2.75” wide x 2.75” high.

Registration is required for this event, which is strictly for ages 5-18. Since the soap can get hot, a parent or guardian must be present for children under the age of 10 to lend a helping hand. Registration will open on June 1st.

Wingmasters: Birds of Prey
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join the specialists of Wingmasters for a live birds of prey demonstration in our Library Plaza Program Room.

Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds characterized by hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons (the word raptor comes from a Latin word that means "to seize"). Raptors can also boast the best eyesight and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. Raptors include hawks, falcons and owls, and this presentation, which incorporates 8 live birds of prey gives an overview of these different categories. The program is designed to explain predation, the birds' place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that WINGMASTERS cares for and explains why these species face an uncertain future.

Registration is required for this program as space is limited. Children and teens aged 5-18 are welcome--children under 10 must be accompanied by a caregiver (please register accordingly, as we must have a chair for everyone in attendance). We do ask that children under the age of 5 not attend this program and choose instead one of our many other all-ages offerings.

Registration will open on June 1st.

Contemporary Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join us Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 7 p.m. We will be discussing Heartland by Sarah Smarsh

                                                                                     

 

During Sarah Smarsh’s turbulent childhood in Kansas in the 1980s and 1990s, the forces of cyclical poverty and the country’s changing economic policies solidified her family’s place among the working poor. By telling the story of her life and the lives of the people she loves, Smarsh challenges us to look more closely at the class divide in our country and examine the myths about people thought to be less because they earn less. Her personal history affirms the corrosive impact intergenerational poverty can have on individuals, families, and communities, and she explores this idea as lived experience, metaphor, and level of consciousness.

Smarsh was born a fifth generation Kansas wheat farmer on her paternal side and the product of generations of teen mothers on her maternal side. Through her experiences growing up as the daughter of a dissatisfied young mother and raised predominantly by her grandmother on a farm thirty miles west of Wichita, we are given a unique and essential look into the lives of poor and working class Americans living in the heartland. Combining memoir with powerful analysis and cultural commentary, Heartland is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of having less in a country known for its excess.
