                                                                                     Redhead by the Side of the Road

Micah Mortimer is a creature of habit. A self-employed tech expert, superintendent of his Baltimore apartment building seems content leading a steady, circumscribed life. But one day his routines are blown apart when his woman friend tells him she's facing eviction, and a teenager shows up at Micah's door claiming to be his son.

These surprises, and the ways they throw Micah's meticulously organized life off-kilter, risk changing him forever.

Winter Backyard Birds
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us on Saturday, February 13 from 2 - 3:00 p.m. for “Winter Backyard Birds”. In this zoom presentation, Steve Hale follows an interactive, bird-quiz format that enables the audience to test their own knowledge and ask their own on-line follow-up questions. The first part of this presentation addresses the topic of the annual Audubon Bird Count and provides information on how newcomers can participate in a count near them. The second part of the presentation discusses some of the common and not-so-common birds that may be found in your backyards and neighborhoods in Summer time. Join the event to test your own ID skills, and learn about feeding to enhance the diversity of winter birds attracted to your yard. Advance registration is required.  A zoom link will be sent to all registrants 24 hours prior to the program.

Bio:

Steve Hale, holds university degrees in marine biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology.  He has lived in New Hampshire over 20 years and has explored most of the state.  An avid hiker, birder, and experienced naturalist, Steve loves to share his experience and knowledge with others. In the mid-1990s, Steve moved to NH from Baton Rouge, LA and worked as a bird observer in the White Mountain National Forest.  This experience honed his skills for birding by ear. Steve converted this experience into a doctoral dissertation at the University of New Hampshire, where he studied the habitat associations of the endemic Bicknell's Thrush using satellite remote sensing and geographic information systems.  The project was also Steve's introduction to the world of hiking in the Whites.  Steve hikes and backpacks over 200 miles every year and has observed many wonderful things.

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

Please join us via Zoom Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 7 p.m. We will be discussing Lady Clementine  by Marie Benedict.

                                                                                     Redhead by the Side of the Road

From Marie Benedict, the New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room, comes an incredible novel that focuses on one of the people who had the most influence during World War I and World War II: Clementine Churchill.

In 1909, Clementine Churchill steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill saves her husband.

Lady Clementine is the ferocious story of the brilliant and ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.
